I’ve got a new post on the Penguin Random House reading site ”Brightly” that shares a number of tips for parents to get their kids ready for the academic school year. Some of the tips include: talking about goals, fears, hopes for the coming school year, watching movies on school themes as a jumping off point to have a conversation about school issues, and teaching kids some simple stress reduction techniques to ease the transition from summer fun to schoolhouse rigor.
