Back To School Success - Tips for Transitioning from Summer to School
As summer comes to an end it is time to get back into the school routine. My son thrives when it comes to routine. By creating a homework station we overcome the dreaded homework routine. It makes homework time easier for us.
It is important to transition from Summer to your school routine. Start easing back into your school routine 3 weeks before the big day. I suggest that you start getting back into an earlier sleeping schedule by pushing back bedtime 10 minutes each night. It will help "ease" you kids into a school routine. It also helps to not allow your kids to sleep in starting two weeks before school too so they are on a more "normal" schedule.
We personally follow a schedule in the summer too but we are a little more lax. We let our son stay up a little bit later and sleep in so easing back into it helps us!
