It’s back to school time and we all know what that means: grumpy kids. No more sleeping in, a more consistent bed time and a lot less time outside (or in front of the TV). So how can you counter the back to school blues?
A great way is to keep some of their favourite activities throughout the fall season. Do they absolutely adore going to the park with you? Great, take them on the weekend. Did you go camping all the time and they loved it? Try getting away for a weekend as it gets slightly colder, it just means more campfire fun!
Another way to counter the back to school blues is by making things like homework fun. Try and tie in activities, games, or characters and toys that they enjoy with the work. In doing this you will make the process more enjoyable for both yourself and your child.
It’s important to remember that the best way to have a happy child is also to have a healthy child. If you keep them active throughout all the seasons, you’ll have one! Healthy, active children also sleep easier, are better rested, and enjoy school and learning a bit more.
