Another back to school ready tip! With school starting again also comes the dreaded homework. Try to set up a dedicated homework spot in the house that is stocked with all your student's needs for homework (paper, pencils, etc). It also helps if they have a consistent homework time, like right when they get home or after dinner. Make sure this spot and time are as free of distractions as they can possibly be to help students just focus on homework without being distracted by tv or other happenings.

Going back to school (or first starting school!) can produce a lot of anxiety in students. Now is the perfect time to start creating positive associations with school. Good ways to do this are by asking about some of their favorite things that have happened at school and building excitement for the positive aspects, like getting to see and play with old friends!
