“Is my child ready?” – 3 ways to know if your child is ready for back-to-school (Podcast Episode 238)

We’ve got a great August coming up for you,

a whole series of new episodes on overcoming the perils of back-to-school!

Starting with today’s episode, in which I share three ways to know if your child is ready – for preschool, for kindergarten, for first or second grade, for relocating to a new school… You name it and we cover it in this episode.

If, after you listen, you’re thinking “maybe my kid ISN’T ready for this…” Hang onto your hats for next week. That is when we will discuss what to do if you’re not sure your child is ready for whatever’s in store!

Go to weturnedoutokay.com/238 for help getting your child to love reading, to take my survey on your biggest back-to-school challenge, and links to back episodes of everything…

And thank you so much for listening!
