As we prepare to return to school routines, we must think about how to ease the transition for our entire family. As we all understand the sorrows of saying goodbye to summer, it is important to make the shift back to school less trying. Here are some helpful tips to incorporate summer tendencies into your everyday lives, without tossing routine out the window:
§ As you reintroduce good reading and homework habits to your child, consider making a comfortable zone for them to work on their school work on the patio. The patio will provide less technological distractions for your child, and the warm sun will get their creative juices flowing. You can monitor your child’s homework progress through your beautiful Bi-Fold Patio Doors.
§ The most challenging back-to-school routine is waking up early and going to bed early. You can ease the process by serving breakfasts and dinners on your luxurious patio. Simply open your multi-slide patio doors, and let the fresh breeze take over your home while you dine outdoors. As the morning sun brightens each of your family member’s moods, waking up early will not feel as challenging.
§ If your child is especially sad about summer’s end, gather the necessary supplies to make a summer scrapbook and put her to work at it on the patio. Your children can collect all of their summer memories (ticket stubs from amusement parks or national parks, sea shells from the beach, photos with friends) in one book so that they can look at it whenever they are in need of some good summer vibes. Give them fresh outdoor space to complete their scrapbook, and you’re always within sight of them with your patio doors open to the crisp fall breezes.
§ It is important that you sit down with your entire family and set attainable goals for everyone, parents included. Have this conversation on your patio where your summer memories all began. The fresh air and beautiful sunlight will allow your children to feel confident in their annual goals.
