Back-to-school season is one of the busiest times of the year for many mamás. From buying new uniforms to scavenging for the best school supplies, and even meal prepping for the week, the tasks are endless. In our cultura, we understand raising a child takes a village, so use these helpful tips to support your amiga in making a smooth transition into back-to-school season.
Help With Creating A Routine
During back-to-school season, it’s easy for mamás to feel swamped with their endless to-do list. Help your mom friend get organized by setting time apart to help her create a routine. From coming up with new sleeping schedules for the kids to school pick-up/drop-off schedules, getting organized will help your amiga conquer the new school year!
Send a Surprise Back-To-School Care Package
Whether your amiga has a new kindergartner or she’s a seasoned mommy of four, a thoughtful back-to-school care package can brighten her day and provide helpful everyday items for her and the family. Put some thought into their specific needs and build the perfect back-to-school care package for your friend. From nutrition snacks for a quick after-school bite to soothing teas for winding down after a long day, and some Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes for unexpected messes – a special care package like this can show your amiga you’re thinking of her.
Plan A Day Out
Let’s face it– even mamis need a day off and nothing is better than decompressing with your girls! Take her out to lunch, go for a walk along the beach, or even plan a night out for a special dinner; the goal is to ease her mind and have fun. Bestie tip? Get ahead of the game and find a babysitter for the kids!
Asking for help isn’t always easy, especially when mamás are expected to do it all. Remind your amiga she has a community to rely on by being proactive and offering to pick up the kids after-school, helping with homework time, and even cleaning up small messes around the home. Bring over your Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes and to help tackle daily household cleanups with ease!
Sometimes mamás just need to vent, and nothing heals the soul more than a chisme session with your bestie! Whether she’s stressed about her work schedule or overwhelmed with the kid’s after-school activities, lending an ear (and the occasional shoulder) to your amiga can give her the opportunity to vent in a safe space.
Community is everything when it comes to raising a child. Being there for your mom friend during back-to-school season can show her you care and build a stronger relationship with her and the family. Remind her she’s doing a great job and keep checking in!
