Memory Aids to Remember a Backpack

Though it's officially summertime, it's never too soon--or the wrong time--to work on building practical school (and everyday) skills. Here are a few ways to help your child remember his backpack. Stick a post-in note on the front door at eye-level so he sees it when he's headed to the bus stop. Have him tie his shoe-laces together around the backpack strap – no backpack, no shoes! Or set a reminder on his cell phone to buzz him two minutes before he heads out the door.
