From the mouth's of mommiesSchool Survival Guide with Printables Review by Alison Bayne“Not only does this Survival Guide contain the printable items I need to help organise my children’s mornings, after-school time and school paperwork, it includes moral support and guidance which I will find very useful as my 5 year-old and 7 year-old make the transition from summer vacation to class-time again. I love the fact that it encourages me to do my best for my kids, to involve them in lunchbox choices, to share their school news and to take responsibility for the routine, whilst at the same time sharing the viewpoint that parenting can be challenging and there can be problems at school,especially if your children are sensitive or anxious. This is more than to do lists and calendars. It is the sharing of wisdom and experience.”

Success doesn't come to you, you go to it. - Marva Collins

With a new school year comes new anxieties, earlier bedtimes, busier schedules, and homework struggles. This can take a toll on your ENTIRE family—not just the student. Make the time and put forth the effort NOW to prepare your family for this busy, stressful time by utilizing the tools and ideas in the Back 2 School Survival Guide.

For 21 years I have experienced having children attending different schools, all the way from elementary to college, and I have certainly learned a thing or two through our successes and failures!

Success doesn’t just happen. It takes hard work, dedication, and a plan of action. Help your kids thrive this year by giving them the tools they need to succeed.

From the mouth's of mommiesDebbie home school mom resource for back to school organizing“This would help me in many areas that I struggle with each year (even as a homeschooling mom), such as the countdown to waking up for school. I struggle with this question each year, of letting them sleep to the last day or slowing building up toward that first day of getting up early. I’m loving the chore lists and the morning and evening lists, and one of my favorite aspects of this guide are the colors and graphics! Also, the forms, schedules, and even the lunchbox ideas will help me out. Although I have my kids at home, I still love to fix special lunches and leave little notes here and there. The forms are all set up to be used by those in traditional schools as well as homeschools. I love that!”

This Back 2 School Survival Guide provides proven tips, tools, and step-by-step instructions to help you and your child be as prepared as possible—and create a more organized home in the process.



From the mouth's of mommies“Even though I am a homeschool mom, I found a lot of the information and tips that would still be very helpful to me. I really loved the getting back into a routine section before school starts. I could really use a “buffer” before we start our school year. I also loved a back to school tradition idea. This is jammed packed with great ideas for the entire school year. The printable templates were a great added bonus that I will be sure to use!”
