Getting your kids ready for back-to-school often means getting them used to waking up early again. Most kids go through a cycle of sleep that starts with them waking up early as a young child. The older they get, the more they tend to want to sleep in. By the time they get to be a teenager it’s a big challenge to get them out of bed. A smart move would be to keep them on the same alarm schedule over the summer as they are for school days. It might be too late for that this year but it something to plan on for next year.
It also helps to de-clutter their rooms as much is possible for back-to-school time. That decluttering work should begin in the closets and dressers. That is where you are likely to find a lot of outfits that are no longer going to be worn simply because the kids have outgrown them. Devoting some time to sorting through the closets and dressers will have you creating a big pile of clothing that should be cleared out of the house once and for all. You might even want to add your own unused outfits to the pile. Once you’ve done the sorting it is time to call in the team who can make short work out of getting rid of it all.

Can you hide you enthusiasm for back-to-school time? Probably not and that’s a good thing. With the approach of the school year, your kids might be feeling a bit anxious and your excitement at the prospect of them going back to school could actually help. It’s not just about making your day easier but about them meeting up with old friends, taking on new challenges and simply learning. Here are some other great back-to-school tips you should put into action:
Set Obtainable Goals
The hope is that every child will be a straight A student and the star of whatever activity the want to go out for. The reality is that getting those straight A’s is going to require a lot of work and sacrifice and not everyone can be the star quarterback or the lead in the musical. That doesn’t mean your kid can’t have ambitions and goals. It will just help to mix the encouragement with a healthy dose of reality. Winning isn’t as important as trying your best.
If your child is going to a new school, then it will help to give them a preview of that school. There will probably be an orientation where they can check out the classrooms and meet the teachers. If not, then the school will surely be open a few days before the first day for a quick walk-through. You should also reach out to the teachers and introduce yourself and find out if there are course materials that can be obtained early on.
You need to set boundaries for bedtime, wake-up and homework and you need to be consistent with them. Thanks to DVRs, any TV show or movie can be finished watching the next night. It might even be better to hold off until the weekend to watch the shows especially if it is going to cause a lot of grumbling. As for waking up in the morning, the snooze alarm is not going to be anyone’s friend.
With regard to homework, you also have to set a consistent time for your kid to finish their daily assignments. That includes Fridays even though they have the “whole weekend” to get it done. How many times did you take the weekend and end up scrambling on a Sunday night?
Not only do you have to get organized with everyone’s new schedule but you also have to make sure things run efficiently when it comes to lunch making and outfit wearing. If you can make lunches the night before, then you’ll be the ahead of the game. The same for picking out what the kids are going to wear to school. It will help to keep the closets clear of all the unwanted items that they’ve outgrown or wouldn’t be caught dead in!

The fall semester is only a couple weeks old but already high school football teams are locked in fierce competition. There was a time when high school sports were strictly local. You could count on boosters and alumni filling up the stadiums on a Friday night. Now thanks to the Internet, local high school games have a chance to go global. Every game that is written up and posted on a website can reach far beyond the community. Add in photos and videos and you’ll see how quickly a remarkable play on the field can go viral. It’s a good time to be involved with high school sports.
Back to school is also a good time for you to get the house ready for the upcoming holidays. If you decorate for Halloween like you do for Christmas, then you’ve probably got a couple of boxes stashed away full of lights, paper ghosts and plastic pumpkins.
