Parents can help get even reluctant students in the mood for learning by involving them in the planning and budgeting process, and by taking children shopping with them.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) August 10, 2014
Parents tend to get anxious about their children’s ever-growing list of required school supplies. eReflect, creator of Ultimate Spelling™, a program that shows how spelling is fun through numerous games and activities, offers some help by making recommendations to parents worldwide on how to save money and still get their children the best school supplies available.
eReflect advises parents of school children to have a plan when it comes to new school year shopping. If parents don’t want to shell out money on unnecessary, costly school supplies, spending at least half an hour creating a list of what they need to buy is necessary to avoid last-minute impulse purchases.
eReflect recommends that parents actually create two lists: a list of must-have items, and a list of extras. This way parents know what they should buy immediately, and what they can think about later if they have the time and the money for additional purchases.
The second most important step in new school year shopping, says eReflect, is to create a budget. With a budget in place, parents have a sense of direction as to what they can splurge on and what they save money on. At this initial stage of planning, it is important that parents do a bit of research to see what the average prices of each item are so that they can create a budget that is as close as possible to what they will actually spend.
The better the research parents do on prices and availability, the less money they will spend, eReflect asserts. For example, supplies related to helping students learn how to spell could be anything from educational software to simple index cards for flash-card review. When parents first shop for their must-have items, and then move to the "extras" list, they ensure they will get all of essentials and won’t run out of money by splurging on non-essential items.
eReflect offers a couple more tips to parents on their latest post, reminding them that the new school year should be an exciting time for their children. Parents can help get even reluctant students in the mood for learning by involving them in the planning and budgeting process, and by taking children shopping with them.
