Your kids may be headed back to school soon, but they’re not the only ones who need to be prepared!
That’s why we put together some great parent tips that will help get you organized and prepare you for your kids’ first day back to school and every day after that, too!
That’s why we suggest personalizing your very own “From the Mom of…” Notepad (at left) complete with all of your kids’ names plus your contact information, including your name, cell phone number and email address.
These cute notepads are sure to come in handy the next time you need to write a quick note for the babysitter, teacher, coach or even another parent you’re trying to schedule a play date with!
Think of it like your own personal mommy or daddy business card – it’s sure to save you a ton of time and stress whether you have one child or a dozen!
Another way to reduce stress as you’re preparing for the new school year is to update your own planner or home calendar with the entire school calendar, including all after-school activities your children may have.
You’ll be happy to have everyone’s schedule all in one spot that you can refer to throughout the year (especially parents who have children in different schools). However, in order to prevent you from feeling overwhelmed, we suggest personalizing our “Simply Organized” Calendar Pad which will help you keep your entire family’s schedule organized on a week-to-week basis.
Your calendar will be much more manageable and much less intimidating so you’ll be more likely to stick to it (we also offer Personalized Calendar Pads that your kids can use to help keep their individual schedules organized, too)!
The best way to fight that back-to-school stress is to be at the top of your game, by making sure you’ve started the day off right with your morning coffee! Head over to our Personalized Coffee Mug Department and have fun picking out a new back-to-school mug or travel tumbler design that you can personalize with your favorite photos, colors and message!
The back-to-school stress and morning carpool will be much more manageable when you’re facing it with a warm cup of coffee in your hand or cup holder!
First thing’s first, we suggest breaking the back-to-school news to your kids gently by announcing that it’s time for back-to-school shopping! Kids love picking out school supplies and it tends to help soften the blow by reminding them that a fresh new year with endless possibilities lies ahead.
Your children’s school should offer a checklist that includes all of the school supplies they’ll need throughout the school year, including a backpack, lunch bag, folders, notebooks, a pencil case, etc. You can find all of these items in designs perfect for students of all ages in our Toddler and Youth, Preteen and Teen, or College Student department in the Back-to-School Store!
Let your kids have fun looking through our wide selection of designs that are perfect for boys and girls of all ages.
Picking out their favorite school supplies will help them warm up to the idea of going back to school and the personalized folders and notebooks are an added bonus as they will help them (and you!) stay organized all year long!
Personalized school supplies not only help your kids stay organized, they also help prevent your kids from mixing up their belongings with another friend or student’s – this is especially important with the new item that’s popping up on almost every school’s checklist: USB drives.
Most kids will bring in the same black flash drives hard to label and distinguish from the rest, but with our “You Name It!” Bamboo Flash Drive – your kids will never worry about mixing up their school work with another student!
Once you have all the school supplies you need, it’s time to prepare your kids’ brains to get back in the swing of things. Encourage your kids to do some summer reading and/or brain teasers as soon as possible so they can start flexing their brains (which may have been on cruise control throughout the summer) and be prepared to return to a full day of learning. If you’re having a hard time getting your kids to read this summer, try motivating them with one of our Personalized Bookmarks or create a reward system that results with a prize or treat every time they meet one of their reading goals. Starting some reading or light academic work as soon as possible promotes a gradual back to school transition that will help your children feel more comfortable and confident as they start the new school year!
Finally, help your children make a smooth back to school transition by calming any first day jitters they may have. Ask your kids how they’re feeling about going back to school and if there is anything that they’re anxious or worried about. For example, if your little one is headed to their very first day of school, or their first day at a new school, they may be nervous about navigating through the building or riding the bus.
We suggest helping them calm their nerves by taking them on a “trial run” before school starts. Start by walking them to the school bus and explaining what time the bus will pick them up on their first day. Then take them to the school and walk them through the hallways and straight to their classroom so they know which way to go on their first day. We also suggest showing them around the entire school, including where the bathrooms are located and, if possible, introduce them to their new teacher or school principal. This little “trial run” will answer any “what ifs” they may have and will have them feeling much more confident about their first day of school!
Follow all these tips plus make sure they eat a nice healthy breakfast and get a good night’s sleep and your little ones are sure to be fully prepared for their first day back to school!
