The school year is right around the corner, if it hasn’t already started for your family. To help you get back in the swing of things and have a great year, here are a few back to school tips.
- Ease into your schedule. If you kids haven’t started school yet, start easing into everyone’s sleep and wake schedules so that the first day isn’t such a shock. You should also start preparing meals at the same time as your kids’ lunch hour in school.
- Practice. Try to beat the stress of the first day by having a practice run. Get everybody up and ready and see if you can make it out the door on-time. If tempers flare and things are forgotten, try again, and start 10-15 minutes earlier.
- Talk about it. If your child is making a big jump into a new school, like middle or high school, talk about what he or she can expect from the year—homework, schedules, classes, etc.
- Stay organized. Have a family calendar somewhere in your house that everyone can see. Some families use a large white board calendar with a different colored marker for each person’s events.
