9 Back to School Sleep Hacks for the Entire Family
Goodbye summer! Hello back-to-school!
August has arrived. For parents, this means endless back to school shopping, scheduling and maybe a tantrum or 5 along the way. You might be anxiously waiting to put the little ones on the school bus in a few weeks but you know you’ll be fighting back tears when they wave from the window, wishing for one more week of summertime bliss.
One of the tougher things about back to school is getting your child off the “sleep as long as you want” routine that happens in the summer, and onto the “you’d better get up or you’ll miss the bus” routine in the fall. As a parent, you’re also affected by the routine change of waking up earlier to make sure everyone is ready for the day. Aside from the ridiculous laundry list of everything that needs to be done, it all starts with a good night’s sleep for YOU. Stop the suffering. Don’t let the stress of back to school get to you.
Check out 10 awesome sleep hacks to ease into the back-to-school routine.
