A Fresh Start
With the beginning of the new school year nearly here, things are probably looking much different than they have in the past. Sure, you’ll still have to buy the requisite school supplies (pencils, notebooks, folders, etc.), but you’ll probably have to stock up on some virtual learning supplies as well (goodbye home office, hello home classroom). But on top of all that, this year also means an entirely new level of planning on your part. The start of a new school year is always chaotic, but if you have a system in place to help you manage some of your stressors, you may be able to free up some time to be able to help your child manage his or her own stress about starting a new grade (or school) while also balancing online and in-person learning.
