Our Back-to-School Tips
Can you believe it's already about time to head back to school? Here are some tips to ensure your kids have a safe and productive school year. It is no secret that all ages of kids get nervous starting a new school year, as parents it is important to remember all the positive aspects of a new school year and reiterate that- meeting new friends, seeing old friends, being an older kid on campus, etc. If your child seems nervous, ask them what they are worried about and help them problem-solve ways to master the new situation.
Getting in the swing of the school year sleep schedule as opposed to the summer sleep schedule can be a little tricky. Sleep is a crucial component to children's success while in school Our tip: plan our sleep/waking schedule a week prior to the first day of school so waking up won't be as strenuous.
