Back to School Adjustment

Have You Adjusted to the School Routine?

The kids may have adjusted to their new school routine, but have you?

Sixty-three percent of LilSugar readers prefer the lazy days of Summer to the rush of the school year, with the tight scheduling and early morning routines that the days involve. While lil ones may relish returning to their friends, the start of their extra-curricular activities and the normalcy of their daily routines, for both working and stay at home mamas, the school year often means fewer lax mornings and later nights as they try to cram all of their day's activities into fewer hours. Add PTA meetings and meet-the-teacher nights and a parent's planner is quickly overflowing with appointments and activities – enough to start counting down the days to Thanksgiving break.

Tell us, have you fully adjusted to your school year routine yet?

No. we're right back into it....her schedule is the same as it has been for the last 2 yrs but unlike the others I only have 1 child that goes to school so it's much easier. The only thing that has changed this year is the amount of homework she gets.

We've adjusted to the schedule, yes. But like austinmommyof4, we're still adjusting to the homework routine. We also have 4 children and the homework load went up a bit this year. I don't believe it's too much for them, we're just still adjusting to that part of the routine is all. It doesn't help that we tend to eat dinner early (compared to other families) and our children have fairly early bedtimes too.

austinmommyof4(now) - and that is the reason we are having a hard time with schedules, the baby is keeping us up at night and making hard to get up in the morning, and he is fussing in the evening when we are trying to help with homework. I don't know about the rest of you, but the homework is killing us, we are having to finish in the morning, if at all, because I believe the kids need sleep more than grades at this point...
