Back to School with Feng Shui for Parents

It's not just the kiddies who have to get ready for back to school, parents are just as responsible and on call as they are. It's always a team collaboration.

Immediate family or whom ever is caring for a child's highest interest is usually their support system. With that in mind, as a parent it's important that you set a solid foundation with your thoughts, words and actions that follow.  Children are extremely observant and adsorbent to all environments, especially their home.

So what can I do as a parent to help go back to school?

  • Just as suggested for the children, the same goes for the parents.  Keep your home clean and organized.  It reaches beyond just having a nice presentation.  Studies have proven, when one is surrounded by too much "stuff" it can actually distract you from accomplishing daily goals or even long term goals because your attention is all over the place.  when you have an environment that mirrors an organized space, your mind and emotions will do the same. My best advice is to simply try this suggestion and see if you notice a difference.
  • It's best to be over pre-pared then under.  If you have time to get key shopping done for either school supplies, clothing, etc...try and do that early and think about shopping on-line.  This way you avoid long lines and can most likely use Promo codes to save money.  This can save time and stress.
  • Be sure to fuel your body with sufficient healthy foods and that is the same for your children.  Make sure you eat breakfast. Again, studies have proven a well balanced breakfast offers an abundance of energy to sustain you those long school and work days. 

  • Hows your attitude? Many times children need an extra push or re-assurance. Everything is new to them so have patience with their progression. If you child is flying through school great but for those who need a little extra support, be that support. Mind the words you use and keep them to a positive nature, even if they fail, let them now it's an opportunity to learn from their mistakes and encourage them to do their best.
  • Teachers can't teach children all by themselves, even thought that is the mis-conception many parents have.  As mentioned in my previous post, it takes a village to raise one child, so all hands on deck! There is structure, management and extra help in the classroom but what happens when your child returns home? It's also the parents responsibility to be observant and help support that maintenance of learning even when not in the classroom.  Be creative with how you can help.

Perhaps your child is having problems with Science, well then, make learning fun! Maybe bring them to the New York Hall of Science in Queens and nurture their visual learning side. This possible suggestion goes beyond an outing to the science hall, it also teaches your child about community and unity of family, which in today's society is disappearing.

It all makes sense.  If you surround yourself with positivity you will project it back.

Laura:  Very timely and important message you provide here!  Luckily, my wife was the Queen of organization and positiveness regarding our 2 boys school experiences.  I'm "suggesting" your post.  I believe so strongly in its message ...

Laura, that breakfast thought is a very good one for the kids (and everyone), to get them going good for the school day. Excellent post.
