8 Things Your Child Needs For A Great School Year

It’s that time of year again! Summer is coming to a close and the kids are getting ready to go back to school. The leaves are beginning to change color and those cool, refreshing mornings are starting to occur more frequently. Some folks, like me, get excited for this time of year. I love the changes taking place around me.

Schools are preparing for the return of students, getting classrooms set up and materials organized. Every parent of school aged children knows the drill- pick up the supply list and head to the big box store for this year's school supplies. Teachers do a wonderful job preparing you for the classroom, but rarely prepare you for what you need at home.

Adults that work from home know the importance of having their own quiet space to work in. The exact same thing is true for children. A child that has his or her own space to study and read is more likely to succeed in school.
