It’s unbelievable how quickly the Summer flew by and now, we are counting down the weeks until it’s back to school time.
Cheyenne is
not happy about her brothers going back to school at all-that face says it all! Since the back to school routine can be a bit
harsh coming off the unstructured routine of the Summer,
I am usually mindful about finding ways to help the transition back to school a pleasant one for everyone

Here are 6 quick tips to help lessen the stress of back to school and make the transition easier:

Shopping: Clothes

6 Quick Tips for a Smooth Transition Back to School (with Wrangler)During the Summer months, the kiddos tend to grow like weeds so shopping for back to school clothes is a MUST, especially in our household. Zion and Ian’s body type are quite opposites; Zion is slender and tall and Ian has more of an athletic built, so I have to be meticulous when shopping for their clothes. And this is why I’ve been particularly impressed with the Wrangler collection available at Kohls.

The adjustable waist is perfect for both boys, but especially Zion who requires a longer length which sometimes
means the waist might be too big. Additionally, Zion
tends to be picky with certain aspects of his clothing because of his sensory issues; he dislikes tags or buttons
touching his skin so I especially
love the pinch protection feature where there is  fabric covering the button of the adjustable waist, so
picky boys like Zion can be comfortable and not worry
about the uncomfortable feel of the button digging into their skin.

The different cuts offer diverse ways of styling and with two very active boys who seem to
always return from school with holes in the
knee of their pants, the reinforced knee on this Wrangler collection is a delightful feature! 


Shopping: School Supplies:

Before I shop for school supplies, I usually search around the house to see if I have any extra or left over items
from the prior year’s school
supply shopping list before I go shopping.
You could greatly reduce cost by doing so and when you’re shopping for school supplies for more
than one, it never hurts to try and save when you can. 

Earlier bedtime

It’s a great idea to move bedtime back an earlier time a few weeks before school starts. I’ve started to do this
already and the boys are not thrilled but the sooner, they get used to it, the better.

I am usually good about limiting their technology use but nevertheless, during the Summer months their  use of their
IPads usually increase.
To get them back into a back to school frame of mind, they are encouraged to read more and we complete
Math and Reading activities together.


Set up a Homework Center
