We are on the cusp of a new school year. My teacher friends are already gearing up for another year. Setting up their class rooms, attending workshops and purchasing all types of extras to supplement the years curriculum. Parents are printing out school supply lists, buying first day of school outfits and picking out backpacks.
Kleenex brand and Box Tops for Education are working together to share tips for Back to School. I have a few of my own tips for back to school to share with you. They may sound like they are not a big deal, but instilling these tips can make all the difference.
I know they sound easy enough, but does your child truly use a tissue at the right time? We have all caught our child picking their nose,using their shirt or worse? Remind your child about germs and the importance of using a tissue. Kleenex Everyday Tissue with Sneeze Shield is a great box tops item to buy for your home and child’s school. Perfect for teaching our children great healthy habits.
Your child’s teacher will appreciate the kid who can tie their own shoes. And if it’s a hassle for them to get it just right opt for a simpler shoe that doesn’t require help. You can still have your child go home and perfect shoe tying.
Belts and other accessories can make for a rough bathroom trip. Simplify their wardrobe when they need to be independent and skip any potential disasters or accidents.
Reminding your child that in all circumstances you must treat others respectfully is a great rule of thumb in life.
Tattle telling is disruptive in itself and can be a nuisance in the classroom. Share with your child how important it is to not make a mountain out of a molehill. If there is not a potential for someone getting hurt or worse it is best to ignore the situation.
Support your child’s school even before the school year starts. Collect box tops for education. Each Box Tops coupon you clip is worth 10 cents. Clipping box tops from any of the 240+ participating products is a great way to support your school.
