    As we get closer to school openings, there are a few things for parents to remember. First, be positive with your children about the prospect of anew year at school. Second, make getting ready for school fun. Go shopping for school supplies for your kids, and make it a fun day. Maybe ice cream or a movie afterwards to celebrate. Then put away the supplies and make it special. Third, shop early, don't make it a last minute 'you will wear this or else!' deal. Fourth, play mini-games to get them thinking again. Play 20 questions in the car, challenge them with times tables, have impromptu spelling bees when hangin out and taking it easy. Fifth, the last couple of days before school be positive, keep things non-stressful and the first morning, give them a great breakfast and pack a special lunch or make sure they have enough money to get their favorite foods at school. Sixth...get to know the teacher early and start a good, positive relationship with him or her. In short...the psychology behind getting ready for school is as important as the getting them there. May you and your child(ren) have a great school year!
