Five Tips for Back To School Readiness

1. Have a trial run of what the morning and after school routine will be. This will set the standards, so there is no miscommunication between you and the kids.

2. When buying school supplies, try to get more than needed for the start of school. This way you can take advantage of the back to school sales. When it comes to clothes, don’t just shop for the fall but grab some spring and summer for next year, while its on clearance.

3. Plan meals and snacks in advance. Having after school snacks stockpiled and dinners mapped out for the week, will save you time and headaches.

4. Have a designated area for homework and studying. Join them a few minutes everyday to ensure they have an understanding of their lesson as well as to demonstrate to them that you are there for them.

5. Visit school and your children’s teachers. Have a conference with the teacher with your children present on expectations, so that everyone is on the same page.
