HOW’S YOUR BACK-TO-SCHOOL ROUTINE?

August 15, 2021 at 12:26 pm 3 comments

As the Back-to-School commercials roll on your local TV channels, you wonder where the time went. A lot is changing this fall 2021 school year.

Many school districts are replacing remote learning with in-person learning. Some are offering a mixture of both – remote on specific days and hybrid on others. Whatever school discipline you have decided, it’s time to help your child prepare for a new routine!

This week I’ll talk about a great nighttime routine to help your child get used to the routine of getting enough sleep and waking up.

Step 1: Change their bedtime.

Summer is such a welcome time for kids unless they have summer camp or part-time jobs. They get to play outside, stay up late and sleep in. Change their bedtime now instead of waiting until the weekend before school starts, so they get adjusted.

Step 2: Change their wake-up time.

This is probably a villainous move on the part of a parent, but very necessary when it comes to helping your child get ready for school. When you change your child’s wake-up time, give them a morning schedule to follow.

Make it age appropriate:

  • yoga (for kids)
  • make-up their bed
  • write/check-off personal goals
  • shower
  • eat breakfast
  • clean up their room
  • chores you may have for them
  • FUN time 

Step 3: Complete any pre-Fall school assignments.

Many teachers send home assignments for their new students that must be completed and submitted either the 1st day of school or during that first week of classes. If your child procrastinates, this is GREAT opportunity to complete an assignment and have it ready to submit on time. It will make them feel good about themselves as well.

Remember to make time for fun whether it’s outside or inside.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a great job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!
