Back to school stress relieve

August 26th, 2013

“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.

  1. 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.”
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
