For the first time in many years, I helped two children get ready to go to school and I was surprised by the focus on making sure that they have all the supplies and new clothes that they need. So much is needed to go to school and learn. What an opportunity to share the love of learning! It is a chance to share some of your back-to-school stories and talk about the difference between needs and wants, what things cost and what is important to your family. Have you talked about all the great experiences they will have? How are you preparing your children for the choices they will make in the school year ahead and into their future?
