Need back-to-school tips for transitioning kids from summer fun to the new school year? In this episode Cara provides moms with practical advice to help prepare them and their kids for the back-to-school season.
Cara chats about the importance of setting goals and creating a plan before a new school year begins.
Among the various tips and tricks Cara provides, the concept of habit stacking is the most important. This concept involves gradually adjusting bedtime and wake-up times, making small increment changes every few days.
We all know kids love technology and most use electronics right before bedtime. Cara suggests reducing technology use before bed, using the habit stacking method and replacing it with other activities, such as playing games or going for family walks.
Additionally, Cara discusses her experience with a program called Table Talk, which helped her address picky eating habits in her children. She shares her own journey towards a healthier relationship with food and offers advice on establishing bookend routines to make the back-to-school transition smoother.
