Back To School

Making the transition back to school is a tough time of year for both parents and kids. The sudden changes in daily routine and responsibilities can leave everyone stressed out. Here are some tips to help make the transition easier.

- Reintroduce the Schedule: Two weeks before school starts back, reinstate the school year bed time. Similarly, begin waking your children up earlier and earlier until they wake up at their normal school year wake up time.

- Create a Morning Checklist: Giving kids a concrete list of things they need to take care of can help them get used to their responsibilities, and serves as a reminder so nothing is forgotten.

- Set the House Clocks Ahead: Changing your house clocks so they read 10 minutes fast gives everyone a head start.
