Family routines tend to slide in the summer—after all, what’s summer without crazy bedtimes, a popsicle habit, and wearing swimsuits for days on end? – and it can be hard to readjust come fall. “ Focus on choosing sleep, exercise, healthy foods, and time together.”

Help your child to lay out his/her clothes and pack their backpack the night before.

Talk, Talk, Talk. Think of all the positive things that they like about school and talk about them. Ask them about their friends, activities, and what they will do in school.
