Time for a Shopping Spree!

A new school year is a great excuse to splurge on a whole new wardrobe. Find outfits that are appropriate for the classroom, but don’t take full control. By allowing your child input into their school clothes, you can help build the independence and confidence that will encourage them to do well in the classroom. Tip: graphic tees featuring favorite movies and characters are great icebreakers for making new friends!

Start Every Day With a Nutritious Breakfast

The best way to stay energized all day long is with a delicious breakfast. Fruits, eggs, juices, and yogurt are all great choices to keep your aspiring scholars awake and alert. Not everyone has time to sit down to a feast every morning, but meal-prepping is the perfect way to ensure that breakfast is never an afterthought. You can’t go wrong with yogurt parfait, a fast, delicious, and healthy way to get fueled for the day.

Plan a Routine

Invest in a daily planner to keep your child organized and on-track with homework, projects, and activities, and avoid unnecessary stress. Don’t forget to encourage your child to put their personality into their planner with drawings, stickers, and colors to make every day exciting!

Get Involved

School isn’t just somewhere to get an education. It’s a place to have fun and make friends, and there’s no better way to do that than by joining a club. Sit with your child and look through their school’s club and organization list to find one that best suits their passions, whether that’s dance, art, or a sports team.

Talk, Talk, Talk!

It is extremely important to communicate with your child, so you know exactly what’s going on in their lives. Make yourself available by asking questions every day when they get home from school, whether it’s about what they learned or what they did during their breaks. When you show interest in your child’s life—no matter how simple—they are more likely to approach you with bigger issues.
