Are You Ready for Back-To-School?

back to school tips from Ultimate Comfort HC

The day for your children to go back to school is fast approaching. Some schools in our area are starting to go back as early as next week. If you’re not ready for the school year, the time to get your kids ready is now. Being prepared will make the first day go so much easier. Let’s look at some ideas on how you can be prepared.

Stock Up for Lunches
While you won’t need to pack school lunches every day, it’s not a bad idea to be prepared, at least with the non-perishables. This is especially true if items you need are on sale at your local store.

Assess Your Inventory
While every kid wants to go to school in brand new clothes, that is not always necessary. Assess their current clothing inventory and get rid of anything that doesn’t fit them anymore. Inspect all of their school supplies from last year; if anything is broken or unusable, throw them away. Once you have completed these tasks, make a list of what your children need for the year before hitting the store.

Be Prepared for A Busy Schedule
With school comes extracurricular activities such as sports, band, and any club your child may be a part of. It’s not a bad idea to have a calendar hung where everyone can see it. Keep it up-to-date as much as you can, so the whole family knows what is going on when.

Early Rising
During the summer, parents can tend to be lenient on bedtimes and let their kids sleep in if they have nowhere to be. Get back into a routine. Make it a point to get them back on track with their bedtime and start waking them up at the time they would need to be awake for school. They may not be cooperative, but it will make the first week back to school so much easier.

Many parents are counting down the days until their kids head back to school and get out of their hair! Make sure you’re prepared for the day!
