Raise your hand if your child had more downtime than study time this summer. Assuming everyone’s hand is up, relax, we’ve got you covered. Simply insist that they spend more time playing Epic Heroes of Knowledge before school starts. (And wait until you see their little faces react to the news that they “have” to play their favorite games!) Before you know it, they will be in tip-top, back-to-school shape.
But you’re not off the hook yet. Your next assignment is to reacquaint yourself with the oh-so-informative Parent Dashboard. While your kids are busy brushing up academically, you can follow along to see how they are progressing in each educational department.
And when the first day of school finally comes, don’t forget to snap a picture! Expect an extra big smile after you hand them their very own Yogome sign to commemorate the big day.
Then, once school starts, reward them with a special lunch box surprise to remind them how terrific they are. Any sandwich, even soggy tuna, tastes better when you can share it with your favorite Yogotar.
