How Every Family Can Start the School Year Off Right

Make early and frequent contact with your child’s teacher.

Don’t be afraid to send an email if you have a question or concern, or just send a note to say ‘hi’ and introduce yourself.

Know your child’s friends.

Plan a weekend play date, even if it’s only for an hour or two, and don’t let the kids hide away downstairs or up in your kiddo’s room.

Eat at least two dinners together each week.

Sitting down to dinner as a family has been proven to lead to healthier kids, happier families, and stronger family relationships.

Let’s face it, it’s hard to stay organized once the chaos of school begins. Then when you get a second, unload the take-home folder and recycle.


Everyone fares better with routine, so start one for homework asap.
