Back to school can be an exciting time for everyone, but it can also be stressful for parents. Getting your family back into a routine after summer can result in some hectic mornings and evenings. So, we’ve put together five back to school hacks that even the busiest of families can use!
Pack Your Child's Backpack as Soon as Homework is Done
Packing your child's backpack as soon as their homework is done saves time the next morning. It also prevents you and your child from forgetting any important homework or paperwork that might be due!
Keeping your child's homework space organized and separate from electronics can eliminate distractions and frustrations for your child.
Lay Out Your Child's Clothes the Night Before
Before they go to bed, let your child help you pick out their outfit for the next day.
Laying out their clothes the night before will save you time and stress. No more fumbling around all the drawers and closet early in the morning. No more fights about what to wear. And it teaches your child to get into the habit of doing it themselves, making them more independent.
Help Your Child Start Their Day in a Good Mood
Start the day off with your child's favorite song, breakfast food, or sing along in the car. Not only does it give them something to look forward too everyday, but starting the day off in a good mood helps both you and your child maintain a positive attitude throughout the day.
Simplify Lunches with Easy-to-Pack Goodies
Keep it simple! Buy food items that are easily packed. Grapes, carrots, and other fruits and veggies can be stored in ziplock bags that you can toss in a lunch box every morning. Buy apples, clementines, and bananas in bulk and save.
Giving your child a variety of foods & keeping their meals well balanced allows them to stay active and healthy!
Develop A Bedtime Routine for the Entire Family
Develop a bedtime schedule that is easy for your family to follow and stay consistent.
Going to sleep and waking up at the same time guarantees your child will get the rest they need to keep their body and mind functioning properly.
Give your child a transition period to help them wind down. Start with a warm bath followed by brushing their teeth and getting ready for bed. Help them lay out their clothes for the next day and then spend some quiet time listening to soothing music or reading a book together.
A solid bedtime routine can minimize any nighttime drama or fights over letting them watch one more YouTube video on their iPad. Plus, they'll get the rest and relaxation they need to learn and be productive at school!
