BACK TO SCHOOL

Summer's been great--swimming in the neighborhood pool, playing until dark, going to bed late at night, sleeping in every morning. Now, in a very short time, the routine has to change. What can you do now to make going back to school a pleasure, not a nightmare of nagging and yelling, delaying and dawdling?

Here are some tips for back to school:

• Start getting kids in bed early. Begin a week before school gets underway. You can't force them to sleep, but you can see they're snuggled in bed looking at books. Lay out the clothes for the next day and lunch too.

• Get yourself up and ready first. If you work outside the home, this step is crucial. All goes more smoothly those first days when you're available to guide your children each step of the way.    

Remember your goal: You want your children up and out the door on time, and to move securely through the school day so each can reach his/her academic potential.

MAKING & TINKERING

Cheap ideas to try at home with your little ones!
