Parents Can Prepare for Back to School Time

Back to school time is always a big transition, not only for children but for parents. While children are filled with excitement and first-day jitters, parents are filled with thoughts of “Am I prepared enough?” To help eliminate these thoughts, lets check out how prepare for the new school year, and a fresh start. 1. Get back into your sleep routine. To help eradicate those stressful school mornings, begin your usual school sleep routine about a week or so before school starts. 2. Shop for school supplies together. Allow them to pick out their own backpack, lunchbox, etc. This is a great way to give them a little bit of responsibility too!. 3. Turn off the TV and video games. For a lot of children summertime is filled with endless video games and TV programs. Children are usually in shock when they begin school and realize that six hours of their day is going to spent learning and not playing. 4. Prepare for the unexpected. Working parents know that it can be difficult to find a sitter when your child is sick. Before school even begins, it’s a good idea to have a sitter already lined up in case you get that phone call home from the nurse saying your child is ill. 5. Get your child’s yearly checkup. School and germs go hand in hand, so it’s best to get your child’s yearly checkup before school even starts, vaccinations etc…..Ed
