seedlingsgroup We’re going to need a lot of patience, compassion and optimism this school year if we want to have a chance at being the adults we’d like our child to become.  

A pretty big task in “normal” times, and a seemingly insurmountable one in 2020.  

As with everything overwhelming, it’s helpful to break things down into more manageable steps we actually do have control over and can accomplish. 

Here are some suggestions, given the almost certainty of remote-schooling, that will help everyone feel more enthusiastic, engaged, and dare we say, excited for the school year. 

•Pick out new school supplies. Nothing like fun highlighters to up the excitement over the first day of school.  

•Pack a backpack. Have your child ready their backpack for the morning, just like always.

•Buy back-to-school outfits. Invest in a few “looks” to motivate your child to change out of pajamas.  

•Purchase over-the-ear headphones. Essential for concentrating and tuning others out by minimizing background noise.  

•Get a bouncing ball. Sitting on a bouncing ball gets kids to change their posture and position, and can improve focus, attention and even writing productivity. 

•Create a visual SUBMIT BUTTON. Post it front and center in your child’s work area, so they don’t forget to submit the work they do. It happens. A lot.  

• Teach your child to pack their lunch and snacks the night before. Cues a school association and avoid daily frustrations (like not knowing what to eat for lunch)! 

•Break up assignments. Create a less-stressful environment and keep your child moving forward by teaching them how to break down big tasks into smaller goals. Celebrate after they complete each step.  

•Switch it up. If there are certain subjects your child has a hard time paying attention to, pick a different spot for them to sit in at that time, or somewhere else in the house even. The novelty of it will help to re-engage their attention.  

•Adjust YouTube settings. Slow down the playback speed or change the settings to show closed captions, to allow your child to read the text while listening to videos.
