It’s that time of the year again, but don’t fret—back-to-school doesn’t have to be chaotic. As a mom of four school-aged children, including twins in kindergarten, I’ve accumulated a handful of tried-and-tested techniques to more organized and headache-free mornings.

Getting everyone back in a routine can be challenging, especially with the last two months being relatively relaxed and quiet. To make the transition easier, start two weeks before the first day of school.

By the time school starts, they’d be up bright and early.
