Parents can easily incorporate the seven basic colors and traits into their back-to-school routines, either by focusing on the color of the day, or by drawing on the color's attributes that they require in the moment.

Use a specific color with the breakfast dishes, napkins, placemats, or tablecloths. Think of healthy foods that reflect those colors, and feed them to the family throughout the day.

Parents can also benefit by wearing a certain color on a given day or in preparation for a given situation. The needed color can be displayed in clothing or accessories. It can be a handkerchief tucked into a sleeve or a pocket. It is so easy to display a poster on the refrigerator or on the back of the door as motivation for everyone to see on their way out of the house in the morning.

When faced with a stressful situation, it is easy for a parent to shift into calm. They just need to take deep breaths, focusing on the particular color they require to release the stress and shift their attitudes.
