    Back to School Routines (Encore)

    Back to School Routines (Encore)

    If your children have recently gone back to school or your school year is about to begin, you’re probably going through some of the same things we’re going through. There are lots of emotions involved and new schedules to consider.  Some of us are redefining ourselves as we enter a new stage of motherhood.
    Join Saren and April as they share their own “back to school” stories along with plenty of practical tips for making the transition work for the whole family.
    We’ll talk about how to be present when our children are home (and how to get things done while they’re at school). We’ll share specific schedules we established in our own homes when we had preschoolers–and schedules we’ve established now with older children. And we’ll suggest questions you can ask yourself if you’re redefining who you are and how you want to spend your time. For full show notes, please visit poweroffamilies.com
