Wishing for a Great Monday Morning After Vacation?

Here’s How!

By far, the holidays are some of the busiest days of the year for most families. There are family members to visit, shopping to do, cooking and cleaning galore to get accomplished, and so much more!

Often there are many more places to go and things to do than you have time to complete everything! So, whether it is after a holiday break, or any other school vacation, exhaustion is usually part of the end-of-vacation routine for many families.

With everything that goes on, it is only natural that many of the daily routines you have established in your household become disrupted- and that often includes children’s schedules as well.

Having established routines is important for your children. Having homework times, regular sleep and waking times, and family meals all allow children to have a certain amount of predictability and comfort in their lives.

When these schedules are disrupted, even for great activities, all children will, in time, become restless and “out of sorts”. Many times, by the end of their vacation you may find yourself battling with your child more than you regularly do, and this may continue well into their return to school after a vacation or holiday break.

"I believe that families' involvement in their child's education is one of the key ingredients to creating a successful school experience for children. Keeping parents informed about school-related issues helps parents and teachers work together for the best possible outcomes for their children. Learning together makes learning fun - for everyone!" - Jennifer Cummings.
