Welcome to the Back to School Blast!
Getting your family prepared to head back to school, can be difficult especially after a long, fun-filled summer. Here are a few of our favorite Back to School Tips to help you along the way.
- Backpack? Check. Pencils? Check. Safety scissors? Not Yet. Use the same checklist each time you head out to grab supplies, to keep track of what you have already purchased and the things you still need to. These are also handy if you have more than one child. Simply print 2, 3, 4 list and add their name to the top.
2. Routines are key
If it's at all possible, get your kids used to a routine. This is really helpful especially for parents of little ones. This way kids know what to expect. They will get used to coming home from school and doing their homework, doing chores, eating dinner, showering, bedtime, etc. without the hassles.
3. Have them start going to bed early now
Chances are you've been letting your kids stay up a bit later over the summer months (I know I have), and because the new school year starts for most in about a month, now is the perfect time to get their sleep habits back on track. This way when school starts they'll have an established sleep schedule.
4. School Shopping: Hit up the sales and shop in bulk
School shopping can be expensive especially if you have multiple kids. This year, try and spend the extra time looking for sales on clothes, supplies, cell phones, etc. Some stores will offer awesome discounts for buying supplies in bulk. And some cell phone companies also offer deals on multiple phone purchases (in the same transaction) and deals on activating multiple phones at the same time.
Talk with your kids about their back-to-school fears and try to address some of the first-day-of-school issues before they happen. Perhaps this will also show your kids that they can communicate with you about other issues at other times.
