Tip #1: Make back-to-school an event or holiday of its own
“I remember growing up with my mother. She always made going back to school an event, whether that was buying new clothes for the school year, so we were always excited because we got new clothes. And then also, I just remember, you know, popping down the aisles in some of the stores and just having fun and picking out whatever we wanted for school supplies.”
Remember that time your kids came home from their first day of school & exclaimed, “My teacher has the best rules!” Me neither. Make sure day one is more about relationships than rules. ?#BoldSchool #edchat #FutureDriven #Culturize #kidsdeserveit #SundayFunday #Back2School

Tip #2: Let the kids pick the school supplies they like
“I mean, I really wish that this stuff [school supplies] was available when I was a kid. Getting fun, stylish supplies, and allowing your kid’s imagination to just go. [Cree is] growing up so fast and he absolutely loves Star Wars, [and] he loves sharks, and just getting him all of those essentials that he needs, that are fun, entertaining and that’s just gonna keep school exciting.”

Tip #3: Make breakfast on the first day of school count
“I always go on my experiences with the way my mom raised us, and one thing that she would do to get us excited for school is she would make our favorite breakfast. My son absolutely loves pancakes. I would say definitely make them a nice hearty, protein-based breakfast that will give them lots of energy to sustain the day, loaded with nice fruit just to get a lot of antioxidants in there and flowing and going.”
