We know it can be a little tough on your kids, but like everything else, all good things come to an end. They’ve had a glorious few months of enjoying the summer, playing, taking holidays and trips, spending time doing things they enjoy, following no schedules, with no studies to do or classes to attend. Restoring the mindset to waking up early, following timetables, getting into a regular study schedule and home work every day can be tough – for kids as well as parents. Here are some tips to help smooth the process:

Get kids involved in back to school shopping


This will serve a dual purpose! Not only will a child get into the right frame of mind to go back to school, he or she will also feel a spark of excitement about using new school books, clothes, stationery and other back to school items. You can let your child participate in the decisions and choices when you make all those purchases.


Get back on schedule


Don’t wait till the day before school starts to restore school schedules. Do this a few days in advance. Start enforcing bedtimes and wake up times. Ensure that meals are served at the times they would be served in school, and revert to other school night rules about the amount of TV viewing permitted, video game allowances, no late nights, and so on. This will help your child ease into the school mindset.

Wean them off technology


Gradually lessen the amount of TV time permitted, and limit or taper off the amount of time spent playing videos games. Consider putting away the gaming console, joy stick, tablet or whichever electronic device your child seems to spend too much time on for a while. But be careful you do this in a way that doesn’t spark a revolt. Help your child reconnect with school friends – this will help them recall the good times that he or she has enjoyed in school and will help divert their attention from those pesky electronics. In fact have a back to school party!

Have a party


Have a party and let your child get the idea that going back to school is something to celebrate and enjoy. Involve a few close friends, particularly children who have been close to him or her in school this past year. Consider having a little theme for the party and just ensure that everyone is having a good time.  This will draw your their attention to the more positive aspects of school and help him or her recall some of the good times they had in school.

Start studying in small installments


It may also be a good idea to start with a few lessons at home – introduce your child to new concepts and subjects in an informal, familiar and non-threatening home setting. Get them interested in their school’s course material so that they feel less trepidation about starting studies afresh. It will also give their confidence a boost if they are a little familiar with their study books when the teachers start giving lectures on them.

Set goals


Talk about the coming academic year and find out what your child is apprehensive about. Offer reassurance and bolster their belief in their abilities. Also, speak about goals for the coming school year such as study schedules, grades and offer the promise of rewards when those goals are achieved over the coming year.

According to recent surveys, an average family spends about $1,223 on back to school items each year, with kids spending about $ 436 and parents spending about $787. These items include school and college supplies such as text books, stationery, and electronics and so on. Let’s look at some back to school tips that will help you save on your back to school expenditure:

Make a list


Every savvy shopper will tell you the importance of making a list and then sticking to it. Start a list and keep adding new things so that you have a comprehensive list when you start to shop. This is the best way to keep track of the things you need.

Shop summer sales


Space out your shopping to coincide with sales. Don’t buy everything at once; buy items as and when they go on sale. This is particularly true for clothes; shopping on sale items can make a huge difference to your budget.  So keep an eye on online promotions as well as the retail outlets you visit regularly.

Shop online


Online stores typically have a central warehousing facility rather than fancy bricks and mortar retail outlets. Since operating costs are low and online stores are able to source items directly from manufacturers, they are able to pass on these price benefits to customers.  Take advantage of lower prices as well as discounts and special offers that online stores provide.  There are lots of back to school discount offers you can currently take advantage of so don’t miss out.

Check online buzz


Check published user reviews for products as well as online shops. See what users say on review sites, like Yelp, Reseller Ratings, and CNET before deciding what to buy and whom to buy it from.

Compare prices


Always compare prices before buying. The internet gives you the convenience of being able to check out many stores simultaneously. So shop around and check to see who‘s giving you the best value for your money and then decide who gets you as a customer.

Save more
