Back-to-School Tips for Parents
Whether you’re trying to speed your kids up (to get them out the door, say) or slow them down (as they practice reading), clocks become a useful device once the kids reach school age. Explaining time, routines and showing the children how to read the time for themselves will give your kids the power to keep themselves organized (without nagging from you).
Ready, set breakfast
A healthy nutritious breakfast not only puts kids in the right mood for learning, but blesses mothers with a righteous feeling of success that they managed to have their children eat well at the right time of day. Kids as young as four or five can get a bowl of cold cereal for themselves, and as they get older they can learn to safely use the toaster or microwave.
