Parents: School is starting and your kids are going back to school. they’re going to be learning so many cool things! You’re excited for them. You’ll be so proud when they win the spelling bee or the science fair. Mostly you’ll be happy to have some peace and quiet…FINALLY! Enjoy your freedom.

Kids: You’ve been bored. Let’s face it. There is only so much you can do during the summer. We all have a limit to the beach trips and the Disney excursions. You are really looking forward to school. Don’t lie to yourselves. You know what? I actually think you’re looking forward to memorizing the periodic table and all the amino acids. If you are a little apprehensive, try to stay calm. Don’t be afraid of all these new challenges this year. You just need some extra help. Find a tutor & you’ll be fine!

Teachers: I didn’t forget about you. Teachers are always heroes in my book. Who else can stand 40+ kids running around the room and screaming? Nobody, that’s who. Hats off to you. Sorry your vacation is over. Worried about finding a way to finally make science/math/English interesting to your kids?  I feel your pain. It’s tough to make a curriculum engaging, enriching, and empowering.  You can do it.  If you need some extra, here it is.

Parents and teachers have the most important job on the planet…raising and educating the youth.  It’s an admirable, yet unenviable position.  You can not be thanked enough.  Sometimes, you feel like throwing in the towel.  Don’t.  You’re doing the best you can and you’re doing great. Parents, don’t get overwhelmed when Junior asks for help with deriving equations. Teachers, please be patient when you have to explain for the 100th time what a titration is.  Kids, be appreciative of these people in your lives.  They are here for a reason and their knowledge is beneficial.  They won’t be in your lives forever, so please take the time to listen to what they have to say.  You may just learn a little something.  That little something may have a huge and positive effect on your life.  Trust me.
