How to Transition Back to School

I have received information and materials from JOHNSON & JOHNSON CONSUMER, Inc., McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division, LLC. The opinions stated are my own. This is a sponsored post. #PositivelyPrepared #BacktoSchool #CollectiveBias

I'm back to work this week in pre-service days as a teacher and next week two of our three boys will be in school! Every year it's so hard to get back into the swing of things at the end of summer, but today I wanted to share a four tips been putting into place that make things a little easier on all of us during this transition.


Set back bedtimes in advance.

We definitely let bedtimes go later in the summer, but I try to transition the boys back to regular school year bedtimes a week before we start back. This helps those mornings not be quite as rough when we go back and more sleep is good for their little minds! We have to be out of the house by 7:15 during the school year, so betimes are about 7:30.


Inventory clothes and shoes.

Also, a few weeks before school starts, I go through the boys' clothes. I check to make sure they have clothes and shoes that fit and also toss any clothes that may have gotten ruined over the summer. Wesley was in need of a few more pairs of easy to pull on shorts because of his new found potty training freedom. Henry's shoes that we bought him last spring were still in great shape since he's been in sandals most of the summer, so I didn't buy him a new pair of shoes for school.


Have quick breakfasts on hand.

Being out the door by 7:15 often means we (me especially) take breakfast with us. I made sure before going into this week that we had some granola bars, other breakfast bars, and yogurt that will be easy to take on the go.


Stock up the medicine cabinet.

Back to school often means back to headaches, temperatures, and body aches. It's always good to be prepared! I went to Target and stocked up on MOTRIN® IB, Children’s MOTRIN®, and Ultra Strength BENGAY® Cream along with a few other things we will need to combat the stress and potential germs of back to school.

Stress of keeping it all together leads to more headaches in my world, so MOTRIN® IB is a must have. MOTRIN® IB temporarily relieves minor aches and pains due to: the common cold, headache, backache, minor pain of arthritis, toothache, muscular aches, premenstrual and menstrual cramps; temporarily reduces fever. It is or adults and children 12 years and older.

I feel like we're battling fevers and sickness a lot more during the school year, so Children’s MOTRIN® is something we use at those times. Children’s MOTRIN® helps your kids bounce back by relieving their pain or fever. It is available in Bubble Gum, Grape and Berry flavors and is for children ages 2 to 11 years. For high fever, nothing works faster or lasts longer.✝ Among OTC brands. Lasts up to 8 hours.

I'm not a lazy bones all summer, but the transition back to school puts my back through the ringer because I'm on my feet a lot more. Ultra Strength BENGAY® Cream temporarily relieves the minor aches and pains of muscles and joints associated with: simple backache, arthritis, strains, bruises and sprains in adults and children 12 years and older. I know I will be rubbing this in a lot during the first few weeks.

Above is where we located them in Target so you know where to find them!

Get positively prepared with the right pain relief for you and your family at Target.
