It is almost August, and that means time for back to school throughout all of Florida. Foreclosures, rental agreements and property sales in Jacksonville are stressful enough, but now you are faced with figuring out bus schedules, school lunches and getting to know your children’s teachers all over again. For some of us this time of year is a welcome relief from the long unstructured days of summer vacation, but for others back to school is filled with stressors around every corner and we don’t know which way to turn.
The first weeks of school are statistically proven to be one of the most important times of the year for your child’s academic success.

Your involvement is crucial in their decision to become active in extracurricular activities and develop appropriate classroom behaviors. There are a few things that you can do to make this time of year a bit less stressful so you and your children can make it through the fall semester with ease.
