Wow! It’s 2016 already. Time sure goes fast these days. As we enter a new year, I want to thank you all for reading my blog tips and tricks for parents, teachers, and fellow tutors.

Second semester will begin in a few days. It’s important to get your kids back into a routine as soon as possible. They will be tired, as will you, after the holidays, so an earlier bed time is a good idea for the first couple of weeks back to school. Re-establish homework routines, morning routines, and evening routines as soon as school starts (or a few days sooner if you can). Give your kids, and yourself, a little grace as you get back into the swing of things.

Here’s to a great year of learning and fun in 2016!
