Getting Back on the School Schedule

 

Believe it or not, it is that time of year again!  The kids have had a great time this summer and have not had a regular bedtime or wake up time since June. 
 
The following are just a few ideas for getting back in the routine:

 

          Switch bedtime and wake up time at least a week before school starts.  Labor Day weekend makes it hard but try to stick to it.  The first week of school will be much better if you do.

          Try starting the bedtime routine a little earlier and completing calming activities such as reading or taking a warm bath before bedtime.

          If the light is keeping them up, make the room as dark as possible.  This can be done with blankets over the windows or other light blocking material.

          Talk about what the school schedule will be like for the first day or week.  Give your child as much information as you have.  Visit the school’s website for more information on specifics for the school year.

          Walk through the school.  Many schools are open the week before and will allow a walk through in the halls but not necessarily the classrooms.

          Prepare supplies and backpack the week before the start of school.  Have the kids help with packing the supplies and talk about how they may use the different supplies. 

          Stay positive and act excited yourself and this will help your child be positive and excited as well.
