Get Back-to-School Organized

As I sit at my parents' kitchen table watching two of my kids play with my dad in the pool, the last thing I want to think about is getting ready for back to school. Yet I know that it will be here soon for me and my family and has already begun for some families in other parts of the country.

Part of me loves back-to-school time. It holds the promise of new beginnings and can be very exciting. Part of me, however, dreads the more intense and busy schedule and the overwhelm in sorting through all the paperwork and establishing new systems.

I am excited to offer the Get Back-to-School Organized! teleseminar with the Kitchen Table Parents program on Tuesday August 23, 2011 at 12noon Eastern/9am Pacific. My guest will be Laura Rolands, Attention & ADHD Coach.

We will be discussing:

  • the best way to coordinate back to school shopping
  • how to handle all that back to school paperwork
  • the best ways to help your students get organized
  • ...and much more
This event is free to all registered members of Kitchen Table Parents - and basic membership is also free.  To learn more and to sign up, visit here.

  1. The big issue my family faces is "Breakfast." My kids (7,5,4) need to wake up by 6:30 and it is a HUGE struggle to get them to eat. School starts so early and my kids just are not hungry at that time. To make it worse, my son (5) will be sick (vomiting etc.) by 8:30 if he eats very little (which he does.) I cannot stand there and force feed him. It becomes a big power stuggle but he must eat or I will get a call from the school nurse. This is his first year at Public school (K) perhaps its nerves? Any suggetions would be helpful!!
