Last year I told you about an awesome Back 2 School Survival Guide that was available for download to help you stay organized and on track throughout the school year. Well I’m happy to say that it is back and updated for the 2013/2014 school year! If there is one thing I know for sure is that if you aren’t organized for the school year, the chaos of it all will eat you up and spit you out. And I find that the more kids you have the more chaotic it gets. It’s for that reason that I can, once again and without hesitation, totally recommend the Back 2 School Survival Guide to you. Not only does it contain pages and pages of printables but practical tips and advice as well. This comprehensive ebook (with over 130 pages!) provides step-by-step instructions to help you and your child be as prepared as possible—and create a more organized home in the process. Continue reading to find out more on all that is included!
Here’s what you’ll find in The Confident Mom Back 2 School Survival Guide:
Back 2 School Survival Guide eBook. Chock full of tips, ideas, and suggestions that help families get organized and prepared for back to school covering everything (and much more) from establishing routines, packing lunches, completing homework, and purchasing school supplies to dealing with bullies, volunteering in the classroom, maintaining multiple schedules, and teaching responsibility.

Sample/Customizable Routines. Routines are the backbone of each day. Younger children may need help remembering what they need to do each day. Laminate or frame our sample morning, afternoon, and evening/bedtime routines so younger children can learn to follow it on their own. Or customize your own if the sample doesn’t fit your household.

My Favorites Worksheet. Tired of having the lunchbox returned half full?
