It’s back-to-school season and we need help from people like you to raise your hand and support the 8 million kids and teens who are alone and unsupervised after school. Without a safe and supportive place to go, the time after the bell rings is a critical time to reach kids and teens. We are doing whatever it takes to help them build a great future with programs that include homework help, mentorship, healthy lifestyle decision making, character and leadership development, and essential job skill training.
As a parent, your main priority of making sure your kids are safe and healthy is never fully complete. During summer break, your safety concerns may include where your kids are, who they are with, what they are doing, how they are feeling, and more. However, those concerns don’t automatically go away when summer ends and they go back to school. In fact, going back to school can increase their likelihood of getting sick and experiencing other issues due to the number of students they are around.
But don’t worry too much! We’re here with back-to-school health tips to ensure your child stays as safe and healthy as possible.
While summer is still in full swing for kids, parents understand that the new school year will be here before you know it. Even though there’s still plenty of time to soak up the sun, ride bikes, and swim at the pool, it’s never too early to start preparing for the upcoming school year. This is especially true since there are around 50 million children enrolled in public education in the United States. That’s a lot of other families preparing for school, so be sure not to wait until the last minute. In this article, we’ll share some of the best back-to-school tips to help you—and your child—prepare for the new school year.
If you ask almost any kid what their favorite season or time of year is, they’ll most likely say summer. This is because it’s a time of freedom, fun, being outside, going on vacation, and not having to worry about school. While it’s a good thing that children are having fun and enjoying themselves during the summer, it can sometimes make the transition back to school difficult. One of the things you can do to ease the transition is to get your child involved in fun activities. In this article, we’ll share some of the top back-to-school activities to help start the school year on a positive note.
