- Plan out your NEW daily schedule. Many of us have a different idea what regular means, but when it comes to the school year, this needs to be set at an all together high.
- Slowly change bedtimes. You’ll want to do this gradual with your children over the course of one to two weeks. If meal times got later, reset those times as well.
- Block important events on calendar. For any events that are going on in your child’s life, make sure you have it blocked out in your schedule. Also, make sure you have every family event plotted out as well.
