Back To School: Have A Home

Back To School: Have A Home

Whether your kids have already started school or if you still have several weeks left to your summer, it’s never too late or too early to begin to set your stellar student up for success this school year. 

When you child comes home from school, does she know where her backpack and lunch box live?  These items should have a regular landing zone.  It could be a hook next to the child’s desk in her room or in a cubby by the entry door.  Having a consistent place to put these items will make them easier to find and cause fewer headaches during that mad dash out the door in the morning.
