Back-to-School Tips for Parents
Your kids don’t really need five new outfits; buy only what your kids really need.” Figure out what they’ve outgrown, then determine what they need to fill in those gaps and purchase accordingly. It shouldn’t be a grand – and painfully expensive – shopping event.
When it comes to shopping for supplies, you might want to wait until after the first day of school, when supply lists are often sent home.
Get everyone on a schedule.
Kids find comfort in routine, and having stress-free kids makes for stress-free parents. By creating a schedule for doing homework, going to bed, waking up, eating breakfast and taking showers, you can make the daily routine less chaotic for everyone.
To eliminate disorder at home, designate where school bags and supplies will be stored and stock plenty of lunch options.
