Children have a capacity for understanding things much different from a few years ago , we must adapt to their requirements , to the speed and to think more faster about the future of your kids, I tried to manage better crises with my kids.
I do agree with your tips. It is absolutely right that we have to keep our children’s health. Your tips are really simple and easy to do. However, it gives a high impact to them. I am sure these tips could apply easily by other people. Thanks for sharing this useful tips.
Really a great article post indeed. You have covered good tips for “back to school”. You’re right @Bryan we need to pay full payment for a new lesson books and then selling it back for a third of the price. It is a shameful act. Government should stop this robbery on the name of education.
Alot of these “back to school” articles dont actually provide children with some useful knowledge especially when it comes to saving money. This one had some great tips, the only thing I didnt see on here was anything about textbooks. I think having to pay full price for a new textbook and then selling it back for a third of the price is highway robbery! After my son came home telling me he had to buy 350 dollars worth of textbooks and then that same semester only got 87 dollars back… we were done. After some research on the best prices we found a site that does a price comparison so whenever we buy or sell a book back we always get the most money. Its really not like me to comment on stuff like this or talk bad about anyone but I really think these textbook companies are making way too much money for a book that is only used for one semester and then never again! Its so important to be prepared in every way you can for your school year and I think if you stay organized with some of the tips this article has and dont pay full price for everything you need your kids will be just fine. Great Job Claire nice article
