Tips for Boosting Back to School Success

1. Set a schedule now New teachers, classmates, homework and other challenges may create some apprehension and nervousness during the first couple weeks of school. Stay positive and explain that some anxiety is normal and that everyone needs time to adjust to new things.
2. Shop for school supplies together Seeing all the new trends and designs that stores have to offer for back-to-school supplies can be really exciting for children. Allow them to personalize their supplies and feel excited about using them. A few new outfits also provide kids with a boost of encouragement and confidence for the new school year.
3. Hold a family celebration Start an annual tradition that celebrates the start of the school year. For exam-ple, have a family cookout with hotdogs and s’mores tarts. This helps build excitement for the new school year, but also gives them a relaxed setting to talk about any back-to-school anxiety they may be feeling.
4. Set up a homework area This area should be organized, quiet and well-lit. You should also allow your child to personalize this space to make it more appealing and fun, without pro-viding distractions.
5. Stock up on a variety of sensible, wholesome, non-perishable snacks.
