Back to School: How to Survive Another Year of Homework and Early Mornings


Going back to school can be a daunting time for kids and parents alike. There's the excitement of new beginnings, but also the stress of getting back into a routine and facing new challenges. Here are some tips to help you survive another year of homework and early mornings:

Get enough sleep. This is one of the most important things you can do to set yourself up for success. Most experts recommend that kids get 9-12 hours of sleep per night. Start going to bed earlier in the weeks leading up to the start of school so you can adjust to the new schedule.

Establish a routine. Having a regular routine will help you stay organized and on track. This includes setting aside specific times for homework, studying, and getting ready for bed.

Get organized. Have a designated space for your school supplies and homework. This will help you stay clutter-free and make it easier to find what you need.

Take breaks. Don't try to cram all of your homework into one sitting. Take breaks throughout the day to avoid getting overwhelmed. Get up and move around, or step outside for some fresh air.

Ask for help. If you're struggling with a particular subject, don't be afraid to ask for help from your teacher, parents, or friends. There are also many online resources available to help you with your studies.

Take care of yourself. Make sure to eat healthy foods, exercise regularly, and get enough fluids. Taking care of your physical and mental health will help you stay energized and focused throughout the school year.

Stay positive. Back to school can be a stressful time, but it's also an exciting time full of new possibilities. Focus on the positive aspects of the new school year and don't be afraid to try new things.

Here are some additional tips for parents:

  • Help your child get organized by setting up a homework space and providing them with the supplies they need.

  • Establish a regular bedtime and wake-up time and stick to it as much as possible, even on weekends.

  • Make sure your child is eating healthy foods and getting enough exercise.

  • Monitor your child's homework and offer help when needed.

  • Be positive and supportive. Let your child know that you believe in them and that you're there to help them succeed.

With a little planning and preparation, you can help your child have a successful back to school year.
