  • Gather school information and organize paperwork.

  • Streamline school lunches

  • Organize children's rooms and homework areas for success

  • Plan daily routines

  • Send the children back to school prepared and eager for new challenges!

Here are some helpful tips to think about during the next couple of weeks.

1. Commit to making 10-15 freezer meals once or twice per month.

This will make your life so much easier by avoiding figuring out last minute meals when kids are tired and hungry.

2. Determine screen time limits on devices before the school year starts.

Free apps like ScreenLimit and Parental Control & Kid Tracker will help regulate your kids’ screen time so you don’t have to. Set the controls to allow certain times and see that your kids are getting their homework complete.

3. Create a Drop-off Point/Command Center for backpacks, books, assignments and other school items.
