Jack - first day wide smile

By Edyta McKay

I can definitely say I’m breathing a big sigh of relief knowing that back to school week is finally in the books and we have started to feel some sort of a routine kicking in.

Although I’ll admit it was relatively pain free for our little guy who started his new adventure in JK. 

Carmen-back to school moving

Our family of five is facing an extra challenge getting ready to head back to school this fall: we’re moving.

Between the new house, new school, and brand new city on the horizon, my three school-aged kids have a lot of worries on their young minds.  

But with a few tweaks to our regular back-to-school routine, I’m finding ways to ease their anxiety and smooth the transition as the new school year approaches:

Like it or not, the first few leaves are turning yellow and the sun is setting earlier each night, which means it’s time to start thinking about back to school.

There’s a lot of advice out there for parents of school-aged kids as fall approaches, but easing anxieties and smoothing the transition can be as simple as these fun-filled strategies:

Getting back to school can be a stressful and expensive time of year.  So, we wanted to help Canadian families de-stress and save money by finding out how parents and kids prepare for a new year of hitting the books.

Parents across Canada will be enjoying a bit more wiggle room in their budgets this month thanks to an increase in the Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB). 

The UCCB program is not only being extended to include children ages 6 through 17 but will also see an increase of $60/month per child for those who were already enjoying the  benefit.
