Teacher Advocate

A place for educators and parents to share ideas –


Summer break is winding down and you’re probably wondering, ’Where did the time go?’ Before you know it, you’ll be packing lunches, reinforcing bedtimes, and seeing your kids off on the first day of school. Well, before you get to all of that, here are a few priceless pieces of advice you can’t find in any store:

As parents, we know that transitioning back to school for kids is about more than moving up a grade and new school clothes. Fear, anxiety, and excitement for what’s ahead are on the minds of kids at any age. It’s natural for kids and parents alike to be a bit anxious, but our back-to-school basics video series can help you get your kids back into the swing of school, manage their anxiety, and beat homework hassles. Watch here.

Did you know that the first four to six weeks of college are some of the most important weeks of your student’s college experience? It’s true. Homesickness, time-management, social anxiety, and adjustment to rigorous classes are just a few of the feelings and challenges that are thrown at students all at once. It’s a time of great change and adjustment. If you have teen who is starting college in the fall, you won’t want to miss our upcoming #ToolkitTalk. Join us as we discuss how first-year college students can start the first month strong, and what parents can do to help support them. We will be joined by Parent Toolkit experts Brian L. Watkins, director of Parent and Family Affairs at the University of Maryland, and Licinia “Lulu” Barrueco Kaliher, director of First-Year Houses & Training at the University of Pennsylvania.

Mark your calendars for Tuesday, August 15th at 7pm ET and invite a friend! In the meantime, follow us on Twitter.
