Back-to-School Prep I

As the lazy days of summer slip away, it will soon be time to put away the beach chairs and corner lemonade stands and prepare for going back to school.

Ready? Don’t miss our NECK & NECK  tips to make the transition easier!

Have a look at http://www.greatschools.org website, they provide you with “nine steps to a smart start”  to make the back to school easier!!

Ease into the school-year schedule. Getting back into the school routine can be a challenge for everyone in the family. To make the adjustment easier, start early.

GreatSchools tip
Start a family calendar in a common area where each family member can write down his or her activities.
  • A few weeks before school starts, move bedtime back to an earlier time.
  • Put a positive spin on going back to school. Talk about the fun things your child will learn, the old friends he’ll see and the new friends he’ll make.
  • If your child is anxious about starting the next grade, reassure her that other children have these feelings too.
  • Don’t make plans for big trips right before the start of school.
  • Establish school-day schedules for homework, TV, baths and bedtime.
  • Arrange play dates with friends from school to re-establish connections that may have been dropped for the summer, or to create new ones.
