How To Plan For Your Son’s New Term?

The school holidays are over and now it is time for your five year old son to get ready for his new term at school. Your son is excited about getting back to school but you are sad that the time you spent with your son during the school vacation will be over. But since your son has to attend school you start preparing for his new term. As we all know there are many things a mother has to do before her son goes back to school. A new school term means new books, new clothes new stationery and new bags.

Product on discount

So you start visiting stores that have children’s clothing and accessories to buy what you need for your son. You enter this reputed store that is well known for its quality products and the first thing that catches your attention is the beautiful pairs of black kids shoes on display. It is only then that you remember that you have to buy this product for your son. You check out the designs and prices and realise that this particular brand is on discount. You ask the sales staff if the product is damaged and the sales staff tell you that they are clearing the old stocks because a new stock with different designs is on its way. You cannot believe your luck.

Buying the same brand

So you are getting a good quality product at a discounted rate. You pick the black pair of kids shoes and purchase the other products and go home. Your son is so excited when he sees the new pair that he can’t wait to go to school. Your son finally gets to wear his new pair of footwear to school. When you pick up your son from school he can’t stop talking about the reaction from his friends about his new pair of footwear. He tells you that his friends want to know from where you bought him this pair because they want to go and buy the same brand. You are very happy that your son is happy and gladly give him the name and address of the store.

Different design

You think it would be a good idea to purchase another pair of latest trend footwear and keep it as a back-up pair. When you visit the store the sales staff inquires if you have a problem with the product you bought. You tell them you came to buy a second pair and they tell you to buy a different colour this time. So you check out the colours available and decide to buy a chocolate brown colour and a different design this time.

Keeping Your Child Active And Healthy

Keeping your child active and healthy is very important. However, healthy does not mean just physically, but mentally as well. It is important that you keep your child’s brain active and healthy at all times. This does not mean putting them in front of a television with kids programmes on. It means that you have to make sure they are engaged in some physical activity which stimulates their brain cells as well.

Purchase Kids Products

There are plenty of kid’s products in the market that you can purchase for your child. For an instance, you can purchase things like educational toys for toddlers in the market. These kinds of products are good for your child, as they give the child space to think and make decisions on their own. They will then use their brains to figure the puzzles out and also be active and energetic. Therefore, purchase kid’s products that will keep your children on their feet.

Purchase Intellectually Stimulating Puzzles

It might be useful to purchase intellectually stimulating puzzles like plantoys for your children. These puzzles are suitable for very young children as well. Some of these puzzles come with voice messages that are recorded in the form of instructions for children. Therefore, if you are not around, then the children can still play with these puzzles. Furthermore, they are very activity based, thus ensuring that there is a thinking process on the part of your child.

Send them to Playgroup

One other way to keep your child active and healthy is to send them to playgroup with children their age. This way, they will interact with other people their age and this will be good for them.

Therefore, ensure that you register them at a good playgroup.
