As ‘Back To School Season’ fast approaches. Many parents minds are beginning to fill with dread regarding the stress that’s heading their way. Getting out of the holiday routine is as tough for parents as it is for children, yet there are several things you can do to make it easier for everyone involved. However, tackling the school run doesn’t have to be as chaotic as it so commonly is. There are many different things you can do in order to prepare yourself sufficiently and encounter no bumps of any kind along the way. If your nerves are starting to build and you want to find out how you can make the experience a positive for both you and your children, then read on to discover more!

Prepare The Essentials The Night Before 

One of the best things that you can do to reduce the risks of stress and chaos is to prepare the essentials the night before. Dashing around the house in order to arrive at school on time only to forget some of the most important things your children must take with them is not a situation you should encounter when you take some time in the evening to get a few items ready. Make a packed lunch, help your little ones to get their bag ready with the right books and lay out a clean uniform that can be thrown on in super fast time in the morning. This way, you can have peace of mind that you will not forget any essentials, nor will you lose time trying to gather everything together, meaning you can have a relaxed breakfast together with your family before the day begins. 

Get The Right Equipment For The Job

Attempting the school run without the right equipment for the job is near enough impossible. If it’s close enough to walk, then invest in some kind of bicycle or scooter that your little ones can speed down the path on to keep up with your pace whilst getting the chance to move a bit more, and consider purchasing a baby carrier that attaches to the front of your body to avoid having to push an unpractical pram when you must take younger children along with you. If you have to take the car to school, ensure that you visit some Jaguar dealers to purchase a safe vehicle that’s large enough to contain suitable children’s car seats to keep them secure throughout their journey. Teach your little ones the importance of car and road safety, such as putting on your seat belt and not distracting Mum or Dad whilst they are driving, and to always look both ways before crossing the street when they leave the vehicle. 

Hopefully this guide can teach you the basics of back to school preparation to help you and your children stay calm when the holidays come to an end. Get ready the evening before to avoid rushing the next morning, and invest in the best equipment to ensure your little ones can have fun and stay safe.
