I can’t believe summer has gone by so fast. I don’t want it to end! But since it is going to :) It’s time to prepare for the kids to go back to school. I thought I would share some tips on how you can make going back to school easier for everyone:
1. Be prepared. Get all the school supplies your child needs now. Yep now, the closer it gets to school starting the more picked over the stores will be. I have made the mistake of waiting until the last minute and then having to run all around town trying to find items from different stores. Not fun.
2. Attend Back to School Night. It is important for your child to see where they will be going to school, especially if they are attending a new school. This night can help your child to feel more comfortable about their first day. Then can see where everything is and get to know the school.
3. Have a Plan. Set up a schedule for how the morning routine is going to work. It helps to print it off a few days before so everyone will know how the first morning will work. Also setting up a carpool now (if you will be doing on) is a good idea. Just another thing you won’t have to worry about last minute.
4. Lock it Up. Make sure you get a lock for your child’s locker. You definitely don’t want to have anything stolen from them this school year. May I suggest Master Lock?!
Master Lock® has hired a new specialist on student life to help students safely and securely navigate this school year in style. The Master Mind, a suave and funny college grad, is staring in a humorous online video series on in which he, along with his clever Little Sister, are setting out to answer students’ most frequent, awkward and perplexing questions on www.facebook.com/masterlock.
Parents and students are invited to submit their own questions for the Master Mind and participate in daily sweepstakes for a chance to win back-to-school must-haves, including popular Master Lock school and campus security products.
I hope these tips help you to have a better and easier back to school experience this year. I would love to hear your tips and ideas as well.
