Back-to-School! Are You Ready???


September is go-time! Back-to-school wardrobe, supplies, haircuts, doctor appointments, soccer, dance classes, new friends, parent committee meeting, fundraisers…the list is endless and stress for both parent and child is at an all time high

Now that I’m a 6 year veteran to the whole back-to-school thing, there’s less panicking and more preparing! Here are a few tips to help make the transition to back-to-school a whole lot easier.

1. When my kids do have some down time they love to play games. I love puzzles because I believe it helps clear their mind and learn how to focus. However, puzzles are cumbersome, take up a lot of  space and get so frustrated when we loses pieces…which is why I LOVE  Magic Jigsaw Puzzles.

2. Did you know that 38 million school days each year are missed from influenza alone? Which means parents need to be proactive in teaching our kids healthy habits and helping prevent the spread of germs in the classroom

3. One thing we all don’t want to think about until we have to think about it is lice. August marks the beginning of lice season in the U.S. and now is the time when classroom outbreaks are at their peak.
