The new school year brings with it more structure, busy schedules, a multitude of events and activities, and of course homework, dreaded homework. When the kids go back to school, it means we all go back to school. Like it or not, you need to adjust just about everything you did over summer, for your kids to get what they need for school. It’s all for the best and there’s a big payoff, especially for visual kids and parents.
back to school ideas
The best part of back to school time for me as a mom was seeing my kids so excited about school. As a family, we supported their excitement with visits to the school and their new classroom. We walked around the playground, met their teacher before school started, and attended open houses and back to school events.
Going back to school is such an exciting time. Like it or not, it symbolizes the end of summer and serves as a reminder that the kids are getting older and growing up. I have found a few great ideas for making the transition back to school just a little easier for both you and the kids.
