With the start of the school year approaching or maybe even beginning already for your children, mom stress kicks in! What do I need to do before school starts? What will I forget to do? Will my son be excited to start school? What if he doesn’t like his teacher or class? The list goes on and on.
After a fun summer away from school including camps and vacations, I try to get my son excited for the start of a new year. This new year signifies him becoming another year older and lots of new memories to be made. I explain that he will meet new people, learn new things and have new experiences. I try to shift his scared emotions to excitement!
Are there any before school traditions you share with your children or any secrets you have to help with their first day of school jitters?
Hello! I'm Carli, a girl originally from Ohio, who could not be more proud to call Raleigh home the last 12+ years. By day, I work at SAS Institute but when I'm not working, I'm a mom to an amazing boy and 2 dogs. In my free time, I love to stay active working out, playing sports, traveling, crafting, attending a sports game/concert, or shopping!
