As the summer vacation draws to an end, tension at home builds up as many parents scramble to get their children ready to go back to school after the long Labor Day weekend. In fact, the National Retail Federation estimates that total back-to-school spending this summer will total $26.7 billion, or an average of $634.78 for families with school-age children. With all the last-minute preparations and shopping that needs to be done, it’s no wonder that many parents will be feeling stressed over the long weekend. In her latest Moms@Work series, Kathryn Michaels proposes some techniques for parents to keep in mind this busy season.
So, how can parents alleviate their stress, and maybe even enjoy their long Labor Day weekend?
As William James, an American philosopher and psychologist once said, “The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.” It is within each and every parent to manage how much stress they choose to feel this long weekend.
