You got the supply list, you finished the summer reading and the days are flying by. It’s already time for back to school. Every end of summer, August and September particularly, your social media timeline is flooded with new outfits and adorable back to school pics. For many parents, back-to-school season brings about much more stress than needed.
In fact, more than 60 percent of parents say they actually lose sleep over back-to-school anxiety.
There are many factors that come into play with parents and their back to school stressors. Whether it’s financial obligations with school tuition and supplies, or just making sure your child is in a classroom that is supportive to his or her specific needs.
Between endless forms to sign, transportation schedules to decipher, wardrobes and supplies to buy, summer reading lists to complete and meet-the-teacher nights, just the process of getting your kids ready for the new school year is enough to cause havoc before the first bell rings.
But how should a parent soothe these stressors? Here are a few tips to help you ease your back to school anxiety as a parent.

- Work through your routine and schedule at least 2 weeks before school starts. Getting in the groove of your routine will help you get ready for the year so that it doesn’t sneak up on you. Many parents spend the last few weeks leading up to Back to School scavenging around trying to do things at the last minute, but this time set yourself up for success so that you can actually have a sense of control which should help you eliminate additional stressors throughout your day.
Create a healthy schedule for you as well as your kiddos. In fact, use our special Glow Within QR Code to listen to a soothing ‘soft life’ playlist while practicing a guided meditation during your free time.
- Establish boundaries. While your days become more hectic during this time of year, it’s time for you to say NO to some of the additional things people always request of you. Remember in this season you must limit what you add to your plate so that you don’t overwhelm yourself or stretch yourself too thin.
So eliminate the stress sooner than later by following these useful tips to make the most out of back to school for you and your kid(s).
