The end of August is quickly approaching and, with it, the beginning of another school year. The time of year that kids bemoan and parents rejoice. It can be a stressful time when there is no plan for getting ready, so let’s talk about it.
It’s time to start resetting the families’ internal clocks to the school schedules. That might mean going to bed and getting up earlier than during the summer months. Don’t wait to start the earlier bedtimes until the night before. Start the process early so kids can gradually get used to it. Going to bed and getting up at the same times every day is ideal for quality of sleep but not always possible. It doesn’t hurt to aim for it though.
