As one of Aesop’s fables reminds us, the ants worked hard to prepare for winter while the grasshoppers played. And when winter came, the ants were cozy and carefree, but the grasshoppers struggled to keep warm and find food. When it comes to winter preparation this year, will you be an ant or a grasshopper? To avoid last-minute panic, costly repairs and a miserable winter, you might consider adding these steps to your Fall preparations for a carefree, winterized home.
Homework may not be your child’s favorite part of the school year, but it’s no secret that completing those after-school assignments can lead to academic success. Help the students in your household develop good study habits and tackle their homework with confidence by creating at least one of these well-stocked study stations within your home.
Now that summer is almost over, it is time for families to start thinking about back-to-school ideas for their Fall home. While many parents think back-to-school organization only involves the kids’ rooms and play areas, the reality is, back-to-school time affects your entire home. From the moment you wake up in the morning and rush to get the kids out to the bus stop to when your kids come home and do their homework, organization is key in your family home.
