It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the approach of the school year. As a parent, there is a lot to juggle to get your child back into his regularly scheduled program – carpool coordination, school supply shopping and the reinstatement of pre-summer routines. As a student, it can feel just as overwhelming. Your preteen may be feeling anxious about a whole different set of responsibilities – in some cases, it’s the first time he’ll have a locker, the first time he’ll be changing classroom between subjects and the first time he’ll have to navigate a new school building. One way to help your child feel more in control is to encourage him to develop organizational skills through the proper use of a student planner.
