9. Manage your own anxiety. Now as a parent getting back into the routine is hard as well. You have to get back into the routine of packing lunches and snacks for everyone. Making sure all the homework is done and the projects that all tend to be due at the same time. It is important for us parents to take a moment and prepare for the school year. A great way is to relax and let loose right.
10. Stay connected to family fun It is important to remember that just because the kids are going back to class doesn’t mean outdoor fun has to end. Parents need to remember that children learn through play and interaction. So once the homework is done send them outside to have some fun. I would suggest that you make a habit of going outside together after th
e school day ends. We do this often. We love to BBQ so this is when we take advantage of outside family time. Of course when it gets cold or rainy outside. My kids love to build forts. They set up their forts in the living rooms and put pillows and blankets everywhere. They love it.
11. Get back to healthy eating. If your family is like mine, your household inventory of potato chips, sodas, ice cream and cookies just grows so much during the summer months. So with school starting, it is time to start stocking up on healthy food and get back into the routine of healthy eating. Now don’t get me wrong my kids LOVE fruits and vegetables but during the summer we do eat a lot of junk food. Chips and cookies just go hand in hand with being a couch potato. LOL
How do you do it? How do you prepare for Back to School?
