Let's Make this Back to School Season the BEST it can BE!

The start of a school year is a busy time-of-year for everybody involved.

For blended families and / or families that for any number of reasons may have more than one home there can be extra complexities. 

It's estimated that perhaps as much as 60 - 70 % of school aged children in the USA fit this description. 

And yet in my experience almost all the materials, advice and guidance for this very intense time of year simply don't seem to be designed to support families that include stepparents, divorced parents, single parents or children who transition between two or more homes during the school year. 

That's why I decided to create this summit. For us. The parents and stepparents and single parents.

Why Sign Up for THIS Summit?

This summit is for you if you are a stepparent or a parent who shares custody of a school-aged child.

My intention with this summit is to provide helpful and supportive information that will help you and your entire family have a more enjoyable back-to-school experience. From people who not only know a lot about this - they also have personal experience to share. 

The back-to-school rush always seemed to catch me by surprise. No matter how far I planned ahead surprises came up that just seemed to appear out of nowhere. I remember once my stepdaughter's summer camp ended the Friday before school started and we ended up driving for 2 days pretty much straight through just to make sure she was home to start school. 

Time and Resource Management Tips

Keeping track of things in a busy family is a big job and in a blended family where kids possibly go between houses keeping track of the kids, the food, the assignments, the projects, the uniforms ... the socks. OMG the forms ... It can be overwhelming.

Ways to avoid burnout and overwhelm from all the seemingly endless details and surprises

As stepparents and parents we sometimes make jokes about how overwhelming and hard it can be to manage it all. What if there were ways to hopefully avoid that feeling?

Now wouldn't that be great?

A sense of support and knowing that you aren't alone in this journey

Being a stepparent can be lonely. Being in a blended family can feel like you're walking a journey that's different from everybody else's. Knowing that others are experiencing something similar is empowering.
