Moms, have you made your back-to-school resolutions, yet?
The realization that 71 days of summer vacation has ended brings a range of emotions in kids from excitement to anxiety. Back-to-school time also leaves moms trying to figure out how to cope with the challenges of getting their kids ready to return to school.
I interviewed several Rochester-area moms about their “resolutions” for the new school year, including yoga instructor Mary Aman who shared ways she was reclaiming space. I also spoke to two experts who offered their tips in combatting back-to-school jitters. After speaking with moms and writing the article – which appears in today’s Democrat and Chronicle Living section – I never thought about making resolutions in September. Now I understand that it’s a perfect time to recommit to what’s important in my life. I hope you find time to read my story in print or online and share your back-to-school goals, resolutions, and lessons with me.
