Back to school is fast approaching and the month of August is looking to be a very hectic time for real estate professionals as well as families with children. During springtime, real estate professionals are typically busier taking families out and about looking for new homes so they can get moved in and ready before the new school year starts in September.
Once you find your perfect home and move in, the next step is to get your children prepared for the upcoming school year.
Here are a few tips that will help make it a little bit less stressful on everyone in the family:
The first few weeks of school are very busy and unpredictable so be sure to purchase your back to school items as early as possible to avoid the last-minute rush at the stores.
Get back into the school routine by gradually adjusting bedtimes (and wake up times) a week or so before to help everyone in the family get back into the routine.
Start discussing extra-curricular activities and homework and routines with your children and teachers so you can organize your Fall schedule.
Hang a calendar in a central spot where everyone in the family can write down their activities and attach a folder for notices and permission slips so that everything’s in one place.
If your child is anxious, listen to their worries but also pay attention to how you feel as sometimes the parent’s anxiety can rub off onto their kids.
Going back to school is a very exciting time (for you and the kids), but it’s also a period of emotional adjustment, so try and make yourself available as much as possible during the first few weeks. With just a little planning, getting back into the school routine can be a nice, smooth transition.
