Back to School Tips for Modern Parents

Set Guidelines

Before you send off your precious son or daughter to fend for their selves in college, make sure you clearly discuss guidelines. Remind them that even though you are not there to set specific rules, they are still responsible for their actions. Claire and Phil certainly know what it’s like when your daughter calls you one night because they’ve been caught doing illegal things by the police.

Prepare Your Little One

Kindergarten is a huge step for your little one! Make sure they are prepared for their big day by giving them a basic educational foundation and teaching them to play well with others. When Lily heads off to kindergarten and gets in a tousle on her first day, Cam and Mitchell are put in a very awkward situation. No parent wants to be in the same situation!

Communication is Key

Set up specific times to continue growing as a family. There is a fine line between suffocating your college kid and staying informed about what’s going on in their life. Many families will select a certain time, for instance Sunday afternoons, to have family phone calls and catch up on the week’s happenings, even if they have talked throughout the week. Just because your son or daughter has moved out, it does not mean that your relationship has to suffer! In fact, sometimes parent-child relationships grow once the kid has left for college.

Distract Yourself

Plan a fun activity for yourself right after dropping your son of in his college dorm room or leaving your daughter for the first day of kindergarten. Have a distraction for yourself so that you don’t find yourself at home looking through photo albums and wondering “how did the time go by so quickly?” These steps are exciting, but certainly emotional and you don’t want to wallow in your sorrows.

Show You Care

No matter what age your child is, make sure you are sharing in their excitement! Whether you have a kindergartener bringing home a painting or a college student signing up for campus activities, ask them questions about their life and listen to their answers. Celebrate with them when they ace an exam or learn to count to 20.

  1. I like to use a picture schedule to get ready in the morning. We have in laminated and on our refrigerator and my girls can use magnets to move down to each step. It has helped us a lot!

  2. My best tip is to discuss back to school with your children and get them involved in sorting the schedule.

  3. Have the kids start getting up earlier at least a week before school starts. Otherwise they are way too tired during that first week!

  4. Make sure they go to bed early at least a week in advance so they get used to their routine again.

  5. I always have a breakfast menu planned for the school week to make the mornings go faster

  6. always eat breakfast!!

  7. Decide the night before what you will wear in the morning.

  8. wash hands regularly during the day to keep from spreading sickness

  9. get a good night's sleep and eat a full breakfast.

  10. My tip is Enjoy! School is more fun if you enjoy it.

  11. Buy extra school supplies when they are on sale at the beginning of the year so you don't have to buy them full price later.
