Change. Some dread it; other embrace it. Our kids may be a little reluctant to head back to school after having their summer break. There are losts of resources available online to help you get your kids ready for the transition from summer mode into school mode. A few tips to help get the kids into back to school mode include, getting the kids on a school time sleep schedule two-weeks prior too the start of school; give your kids activities they can do after school to keep them busy; shift their brains from summer mode into scholar mode by visiting some cultural attractions (Philly has a lot of those); reacquaint your kids with the calendar schedule they'll use to manage their activities; consider downloading helpful assignment apps like iHomework or MyHomeWork to help keep your kids organized; etc, etc, etc but most importantly take a BREATH!
