This time of year can be so challenging for so many reasons. So Kohl’s asked me to talk about them and ways you can overcome these with ease with Kohl’s help!
Challenge: Resetting The Routine
Summers are great for letting go a little bit to the rigor of a routine that helps us get up in the AM and get out the door. Getting kids ready, yourself ready and getting to school and work on time can feel like an olympic event worthy of a celebration.
Solution: Start It Early
Don’t expect that on the first day of school that routine will go smoothly so take a few days as a “test run” to work the kinks out. It doesn’t sound like much fun but it will help your sanity on the first day of school
As parents one of the things that makes us the most nervous is watching our kids go through new experiences that make them nervous. Going into a new classroom can be one of those times. It’s our jobs as parents to make them feel ready and prepared to take on that challenge, which leads me to my next…
As with any change, the best way I’ve found is to talk about it. Help them understand what to expect. Get them excited about the things that appeal to them. If you can, go meet the teacher and explore the classroom ahead of time.
Let’s face it, you don’t just wake up one summer morning and go to school. You have to get prepared. There’s so much to buy…school supplies and clothes top the list.
If your kids are like mine, clothes can be challenging. You want them to look good and feel good but you also don’t have an endless pile of cash sitting around so what’s the solution? Kohls! They have great quality clothes at a great price to help keep your family active and ready to take on the day!
