It’s that time of the year again! The new school year is quickly approaching (and for some, already here!) and the fall panic is starting to settle in. While you are busy shopping and preparing, you may want to take a moment and figure out how you want your kids to remember their first day of school. You can’t control what goes on within the school walls, but you can encourage them before and after their first day. Here are 10 back-to-school traditions that will make your kids feel special and give them a boost they may need.
