School is Coming !

As  school supplies appear on the store’s shelves and “back to school” ads appear, we may be thinking “oh, no! School is almost here!”

Try to take pressure off yourself and your child by planning now:

  1.  What will your time look like before school: Getting yourself and spouse ready for work? Getting the kids ready for school? Getting the pets ready for the day?
  2. What will your time after school look like: therapy? Sports? Scouts?

Questions to ask:

  1. Will you be overloaded by your child’s busy schedule? We parents can get tired and cranky.
  2. Will your child be overloaded by school plus after school activities? Our children with learning differences work very hard during school.  Choose wisely what they
    can handle after a long day of working. Tiredness can result in a lot of unwanted behaviors!
  3.  If you anticipate being overloaded, is there something that can be eliminated or postponed until next semester?  If not, is there a way to carpool to help you and others in the same predicament? Try to reduce stress for both you and your children.
  4. Did you set aside time for you? For you and your spouse?
  5. Did you set aside time to just play?!
