It’s that time of year again folks. Depending on how your summer went you are either SUPER eager or SUPER bummed, but either way your little ones are headed back to school this week.
If you’re like me, the beginning of the school year feels very much like January 1st. A lot of resolutions are made regarding food, organization, parenting choices, and a week later it’s all gone to hell in a hand basket.[sws_pullquote_right]A lot of resolutions are made regarding food, organization, parenting choices, and a week later it’s all gone to hell in a hand basket. [/sws_pullquote_right] To help you put your best foot forward this school year we’ve compiled some great back to school articles on common topics that parents ask us about. We’ve even created a Pinterest Board for them! Some of these are articles we’ve published over the years and some are great posts we’ve read on other parenting sites.
We hope these articles help you up your Back to School game and make your year (or at least the first week) a bit easier.
Pretty early in your child’s school career, you realize that the paperwork they mail you to fill out at the beginning of the year IS JUST THE BEGINNING. It never lets up and if you have any hope of keeping up, you need to be organized.
Meals, Meals, More Meals
One of your primary responsibilities as a parent is keeping your child alive by making sure they eat at least three times a day. Getting a healthy breakfast on the table, a healthy lunch in the lunchbox, and a healthy dinner in their bellies before they hit the sack at night. It’s your job so why not ROCK IT!
Breakfast: Make a Month of Green Smoothies in an Hour
Dinner: Back to School Weeknight Dinners
The Importance of Teachers
Wanna know the best way to get the year started off well? Get on the teacher’s good side. Wanna know the best way to do that? Be nice, be positive, get the supplies off the list, read whatever they send home, and be thankful for them because being a teacher is a pretty amazing/tough job and they will have a HUGE impact on your kid’s life.
