I hate mornings. Actually, that's not true. I really, really, really hate mornings. I feel the worst parent in me comes out in full force trying to get my kids to scarf their breakfast, brush their teeth and sprint out the door to beat the morning school bell.
Ice cream, swimming pools, lax bedtimes, video games…these are just a few things that define “summer break”. It takes 21 days to form new habits, so if you wait until the first week of school to enforce early bedtimes, studying, reading, healthy eating and other good habits your child will struggle the first month of school.
If your first or only child is beginning kindergarten this year, I am sure you are in a state of either denial, excitement or nervousness, but most likely a combination of all those things. How can your baby be ready for school? Brace yourself, it's here, SCHOOL.
