Back to school can be hard for everyone. Mom and Dad suddenly have to keep track of busy schedules and making lunches, the kids suddenly go from a relaxed summer to being busy all day, every day.
There are ways of making new schedules easy on yourself and your whole family. Check out these tips for help easing your family into their new schedules.
Get together as a family and talk about what needs to get done. If possible, meet together once every week—even if it’s just Sunday breakfast. Take some time to meet and talk about what needs to be done and what’s happening in the next week.
Instead of staying up late on Friday and Saturday, stick with the same sleep routine that you do through the week—at least while you’re adjusting to a new schedule. Eventually, you might have a little wiggle room on the weekends, but give yourself a month or so to adjust.
When your family is getting accustomed to new schedules, it can be hard to stay in contact with one another. It’s important to continually keep in contact with one another. A lot of family emergencies can be avoided by just sending a text to your significant other.
