Tips to Make Back to School Easy

Tips to Make Back to School Easy
  • Make homework more organized with apps
  • Get children involved in after school activities to easily make friends
  • If you are a working parent, have after school care prearranged, and have the child familiar with this process ahead of time
  • Set up a calendar to schedule events and commitments to keep track of activities
  • Go over your child’s weekly calendar with them so they are aware of their activities that week
  • Set up an official homework station
  • Set up and enforce bed times. Children between the ages of 6 and 13 need at least 9-11 hours of sleep per night
  • Create rules for screen time, this includes television and hand held electronics
  • The night before school allow the child to choose what they wear the next day
  • If your child packs a lunch, prepare it the night before to save time in the morning
  • If your child’s school allows it, pack a reusable water bottle to keep hydrated during the school day
  • Schedule immunization exams, and sports exams with your child’s pediatrician
