Adjust bedtime based on what you think is best for your child, and stick to the no electronics curfew and no background noise rule to improve each night of sleep.
There are a few ways to make this transition easier, especially if you don’t want to deal with half-asleep children for the first week or two after school starts.
After the morning is tackled, start working on an earlier bedtime until an age-appropriate time is reached for your children.
When they cannot avoid the bully for whatever reason, or the child/teenager is fearful of them, encourage them to talk to you or a teacher (or other adult) so that the issue can be addressed.
Talk about the people they will meet, the new friends they will make, and the interesting things they will learn in this new place. This will reduce nervousness and fear, but expect some doubts and be prepared for some issues over the first few days.
The first day of school is always the toughest of the year for most kids
For this last week of summer, make sure that your child gets enough rest in preparation for the first day of school.
We all want to give our children the very best in life, and as we shop for their back to school needs we will run into parents who can do just that
To make the school supplies last, consider purchasing a second set of some things to have at home, especially crayons, pencils, and drawing paper.
From a parent’s perspective, this can be a stressful time of year as we strive to ensure that kids have everything they need without spending everything we have worked to put away for a rainy day.
