Summer vacation is a magical time in the life of a child. No school schedule or homework, long hours spent playing in the sun, and family vacations, are just a few things that make summer such a fun experience. Hopefully your kiddos have had an enjoyable vacation from school. However, summer is quickly drawing to a close and with the end in sight, we start looking ahead to the coming school year. As parents, we know it can be difficult for our children to switch back into the structured schedule of school. Fortunately, there are some simple things we can do to ease the transition back into academic life.
