* Back to school countdown: Tick Tock

clock-306412_640As the new school year approaches for students on a traditional calendar, it’s time to start watching the clock!  Now is a perfect time to begin acclimating your child to a school schedule for bedtime and waking.  Some parents never planned to  change their schedule during the summer, but it’s easy to slide into a different time zone.  Although an earlier bedtime usually provides an oasis for parents, who wants to start getting up at 6:30?  Take it from me: it’s worth the effort.  Every year, I see kids (and teachers) stumbling through their first week of school, groggy and often irritable.  Help your kid start off alert and refreshed!
