    1. Start a morning schedule

    Wake your kids up at what will be their regular morning wake-up time. For older children, help


    them set an alarm clock so they can take responsibility for their own morning wake-up routine.


    1. Eat a healthy breakfast

    By now, we all know kids need a nutritious breakfast so they are ready to take on the day.


    Incorporate healthy breakfast options like apples, bananas, and whole grain toast. This will give


    them the energy they need to be mentally alert all day, instead of the mid-morning crash they’ll get


    from sugary cereals.


    1. Set out clothes the night before

    Avoid frantic mornings by having your child choose what he or she will wear the night before. If


    you have a younger child, let him or her pick from a couple different options. Get into a routine of


    doing this even before school starts so your child is in the habit of planning ahead.


    1. Pack a healthy lunch

    In the days or weeks before school starts, plan and make your lunches for the next day together


    each night. Even though school isn’t in session yet, you can help your kids get used to packing a


    lunch by having it labeled and ready to go each morning.


    1. Follow a lunch schedule

    Start eating lunch at the same time as your child will be when he or she is at school. This will help


    get your child’s stomach on a schedule so he or she isn’t going to class hungry and distracted.


    1. Make dedicated TV-free time

    Start getting into a homework routine now by having TV-free time during after-school hours. Use


    this time for a learning activity like reading a book or even talking about your day together.


    1. Play board or word games

    Playing games over the summer is a great way to keep you child’s mind engaged and focused on


    building learning skills. This will help make sure your child is prepared when classes start and make


    the back to school transition a smoother one.


    1. Stick to a bedtime routine

    Early bedtimes usually go out the window over the summer break, but young minds need plenty of


    sleep to be ready to learn. Get back into a set bedtime routine now so your child isn’t up late the


    night before the first day of school.


    1. Read every day

    Learning shouldn’t stop over the summer. Each day, take at least 30 minutes to sit with your child


    and read together. This will help keep him or her engaged with learning and in the routine of daily





    1. Stock up on school supplies

    Take your child shopping for back-to-school supplies he or she will need to get the year off to a


    successful start. Shopping for backpacks, binders, and pencil cases will get your child thinking (and


    \excited) about the upcoming school year.
