Ereka Vetrini offers insight on everything from keeping kids entertained and educated to staying healthy inside and out of the classroom.

September is go-time! Back-to-school wardrobe, supplies, haircuts, doctor appointments, soccer, dance classes, new friends, parent committee meeting, fundraisers…the list is endless and stress for both parent and child is at an all time high.

So how can a family have less panicking and more preparing? Here are a few tips to help make the transition to back-to-school a whole lot easier.

There are many times during the school year when parents are waiting to pick children up from school, sports practices, etc. and need something to pass the time. Students have similar times like on the bus or during recess when the weather is bad outside. When kids do have some down time they love to play games. That’s where Magic Jigsaw Puzzles come in.

And if you order soon you can receive an 80% discount on their premium puzzles, which include puzzles developed from their partnerships with National Geographic and Sony Pictures! What a great way to kick off the school year!

Did you know thirty-eight million school days each year are missed due to influenza alone, while tens of millions more are lost due to colds and other infectious diseases ? Which means parents need to be proactive in teaching our kids healthy habits and helping prevent the spread of germs in the classroom.

That’s why Lysol Disinfecting Wipes are a must for any back-to-school supply list. Lysol Disinfecting Wipes kill 99.9 percent of bacteria and viruses on frequently touched hard surfaces. You can use them on door knobs, light switches, desks, and counter tops and especially keyboards!

In its second year, Lysol and Box Tops for Education are excited to continue an exclusive partnership to promote healthy habits and provide funding for schools in America. Support your child’s school one clean surface at a time by providing classrooms with Box Top eligible Lysol Disinfecting Wipes.

Back to school also marks the beginning of lice season in the U.S., a time when classroom outbreaks are at their peak. Nix®, the #1 pediatrician-recommended brand for head lice treatment, offers the Nix Ultra® Lice Removal Kit to help parents eliminate lice – even hard-to-kill super lice – from heads and homes.

The removal kit includes:
-Pesticide-free Nix Ultra® solution
-Nix Ultra® Lice Removal Comb
-Nix® Lice Control Spray for the home

It can be found at drug, food and mass merchandisers across the country.

You can also go to, enter your zip code and find out the incidence level in your area. This helps you spot and prepare for lice outbreaks wherever you live or plan to visit.
