Learn How to Easily SURVIVE Back to School as a Stepmom!

Learn How to Easily SURVIVE Back to School as a Stepmom! 

It seems like summer just began, didn’t it? Unfortunately though, back to school time is right on our heels and as a Stepmom, this time can be absolutely INSANE!

If you parent, the kids probably spent the summer away or partially away from home, which can make the coming home part confusing and chaotic! If your kids stayed with you during summer break, you probably didn’t have much time to organize or prep for the back to school time.

For this coming up back to school season, I want to provide you with the easiest way to SURVIVE it!

The very first step is to create and establish a game plan and get everyone on board!

By gameplay I am talking about the routine or schedule you plan to have throughout the school year. Who will have the kids and when? Pickups and drop-offs, who will do either if the main person cannot. School events, homework, lunches, etc.

You know what will work for you and your spouse so the two of you establish your proposed plan and ask the other parent to do the same. Get together and discuss both proposals and come up with 1 solution that works for you all!

This needs to be done ahead of time in case you either cannot agree with one another and/or there is an issue that needs to time to be solved.

 

Secondly, supplies, school clothing, shoes, and fees should be a shared investment.

My husband and I, now, are the only parents in our kids live so we are the ones to do all of this! However, if you are co-parenting these expenses should be shared or split, in a fair manner!

School supplies alone are costly! When you add in the new outfits, shoes, undergarments etc it’s outrageously expensive. Even further, the older grade levels require “class fees” that are not cheap where we live.

The supply list usually comes out at the end of the previous school year. Get a couple of copies and either split the list or you & your spouse meet with the other parent and choose who buys what. Same with the outfits and such, you buy this set amount and the other parent buys the same amount. It shouldn’t be difficult if you have a healthy co-parenting relationship! Read more..
