Whether public school, charter school, private school, or homeschool, this time of year brings massive changes to lots of families' lives.
It's exciting, but it can also be stressful.
Today I want to help you stay more on the positive side of the exciting/stressful balance!
How are you feeling about the start of the new school year?
Today we discuss 4 ways to start the year off right.
Important Program Notes:
– In this episode you'll hear me talk about a Streamline Your Mornings workshop, that was to take place in the We Turned Out Okay Facebook group… Instead of that I have created an in-depth, 4-part series, each exploring one way to start the year off right!
Included in the fourth part, called "A free tool you can use to streamline your family's weekly schedule," you'll find the updated We Turned Out Okay Weekly Planner. (You'll hear me talk about the Facebook group at the end of this episode, as the place where you can find that tool. Instead, to make your life super easy, click here so you can read the newsletter, and download that free PDF.)
