#‎ad‬ Be ‪‬#PositivelyPreparedfor ‪#‎BacktoSchool‬ this year with these tips and savings from #Target‬ and #Tylenol‬.


We are in our third full day of the new school year here at casa Kinsman and I will confess to feeling a little more pressure than usual as I take in the scope of what this milestone year will bring for my family. ”Busy” doesn’t seem to adequately cover the 2016-2017 school year ahead!  My oldest daughter is a senior with a heavy class load, clubs, prom, graduation and college looming large. My youngest is an eighth grader with tough classes, banquets, club events, and graduation from middle school.  Instead of letting this pressure filled year overwhelm me, I found easy ways to be prepared for this school year with my teens and want to share them with you today. 


Family vacation fun


Have fun! I’ve read several back to school checklists and oddly, this simple way to stay positive during this crazy, hectic time of year wasn’t mentioned. I snapped the above photo on our recent family vacation to the Smoky Mountains. We were having so much fun, so I’ll implement time for fun into our daily routines.



Take time to stretch everyday! #PositivelyPrepared for #BacktoSchool



Stretch! You may think that back pain is strictly parent’s domain, but that is not the case. Our teens lug around a loaded down back pack full of books, or carry their books to class daily. Not to mention having to look down at their desks to do their assignments. This can lead to back pain and a serious crick in the neck. Setting aside just 10 minutes after school to stretch out those tired muscles will help refresh and invigorate our kids to finish the day on the right foot.


Hydrate! By the time we feel thirsty, we are probably already about a quart low on fluids! Most kids don’t drink enough water during the school day, so it’s very important that we offer tasty ways for our kids to re- hydrate after school. Be sure to stock up on after school snacks that are super hydrators like watermelon and grapes. Make a cool and refreshing fruit smoothie if your busy schedule allows, or try this trick. Fill a water bottle halfway and place in the freezer when you making lunches for the next day. Grab and fill with water to take with you to after school activities. 


Inevitably, no matter how well we plan our days, back to school time can bring on aches and pains, colds and headaches, so my last tip is to stock up on reliable pain relief products like TYLENOL® and MOTRIN®.  Afterall, TYLENOL® is the #1 Doctor Recommended Brand of Pain Reliever and offers trusted pain relief

To get ready for back to school we like to set out outfits, and start sending the kids to bed an hour earlier the week before to help them adjust. #client -Amy

I love seeing your girls! I have a senior too. Such a fun, but busy, year ahead :) I love Motrin especially and always keep it on hand.

Hi Amy,

You shared two great tips that we still try to implement here as well. The going to bed an hour earlier is tricky when the homework really takes off later in the year, but so far, we are doing it.

Hi Susan,

Thank you! I didn't know you had a senior as well. We will be crossing off milestones together then. Yes, there should be lots of fun times ahead in this school year. I took a Motrin last night for my headache and it worked so fast, I forgot I had one until my daughter asked me if I was feeling better.

I like the fun part - and the hydrating part too :)

Fun and hydration are going hand and hand during these hot summer days!
