Most kids will be heading back to school soon. Now is a great time to start getting ready!
Here are some steps you can take right now to make the transition go smoothly:
Ease Into the New Schedule: Resume your usual school year sleep routines. Kids should start going to bed at a decent time and waking up earlier.
Create a Calendar Central: The school year presents a lot of changes. Make a calendar for family events, school programs, music lessons, etc. If it's all written down in one place, it can help keep your busy lives straight.
Clean Up the Clutter: Get rid of the stack of papers and random items on your home's surfaces. Cleaning up will reduce stress later and will clear the way for the homework and school papers that will soon begin to take over.
