Back to School: Parenting Resources to Share this September

With kids heading back to school this season, families might be feeling overwhelmed by changing schedules, new demands and navigating complicated school systems. Here are five of our favorite school-related topics on SCAN’s Parent Resource Center that can help parents manage the challenges of the school year and stay connected to their kids through it all:

  1. It’s important for parents to communicate with teachers. They know their children better than anyone else, and can be great team players with school staff! Learn more about Advocating for Your Child in School.
  2. Establishing simple routines for your mornings and evenings can make the transition to school easier. Learn more about The Importance of Routines.
