“It is so hard to wake up early for school!”
Yes, back to the real world of schedules, classes and homework!
Here are 3 quick tips on how to make back to school a little more palatable for your children.
- Put something special in their lunch box. A big homemade cookie, a small bag of sour gummy worms, or simply cutting the crust off the sandwich makes lunch seem gourmet for me. Don’t forget a written note of “I love you.”
- Take your child to an office supply store and pick out something that would enhance their homework station. Doesn’t a new pen motivate you to write neater? It works for me.
- While you’re at the office supply store, have your child pick out a few extra school supplies and take them to a school in a lower economic area. Education should not be taken for granted, and many children cannot afford basic school supplies. Let your child experience the pleasure of giving.
