Surviving Back to School

The new school year is here! Beyond buying cute new outfits for the kids, or new supplies to help their classroom out, here are some trips to transform your beginning of the year jumble.
1. Set realistic academic goals for your children. It is easy to want to push your children academically right off the bat. But, learning doesn't always come fast for all kids, so do yourself a favor and curtail ambitions.

2. Get organized. Do an end of the week purge of backpacks and gym bags with your child. Junk will accumulate like loose paper, books and empty food wrappers. Getting rid of non-essential items will cut down on clutter and help you find what is needed.
