I know the first day has already come and gone, but you can probably use some help getting your kids ready for the first day of school next year.

The first day is tough for kids, especially when it's a major milestone – starting kindergarten, moving into a real grade, transitioning from elementary school to middle school, or from middle to high school.

However, it can be just as tough on the parents, especially in those early years.

Getting your kids ready for the first day of school is about more than picking out clothes or getting the right supplies, although you'll see those are important too.

It's about being emotionally ready and fully prepared – for both of you!

This is also a great time for you to get to know the teachers, the principal, the guidance counselor, and familiarize yourself with your child's new surroundings.
