Get the Family Prepped for School with These Tips

Back to School TipsParents, school season is almost in full swing. Are you ready?

As always, the summer flies back too quickly. While the summer was full of fun, bouncing children, and long nights, it’s time to settle back down for the upcoming school year. In a blink of an eye, we’re back to the school routine and nightly homework.

Set your child (and yourself) up for success by getting ready for school before the first day approaches. Here are some tips to get you started.

Set a sleep routine
Before your child has to go back to school, get them into the routine of going to bed and waking up at the right time. Ensuring that they get nine to eleven hours of sleep every night is part of your duty to setting them up for success.

  • Avoid serving big dinners close to bedtime as this can hinder their chance to fall asleep.
  • Set a regular bedtime and enforce it a week before school starts.
  • Limit video games and T.V. watching before bedtime as this can be too stimulating.

Practice healthy eating
Get your children into a habit of eating three regular meals a day before they go back to school. Regular meals help to control their hunger and performance levels so that they can breeze through the day without hunger pangs. Also, never let your child skip breakfast in the morning rush! Haven’t you heard it’s the most important meal of the day?

Reach for learning success
Most of a child’s learning success in school is tied to the support that he gets at home. You can help your child to get the most out of school by communicating with teachers, encouraging homework completion, and helping them with work.
