When does school start for your kids? Where I live it starts after Labor Day, but where my sister lives, it starts the middle of August. That seems so early to me. Today is my day to be a contributor on Busy Mom’s Helper and this month I thought I would share with you an Easy Pencil Case to make your kid’s school day a little more special. I know pencil cases don’t cost too much money, but wouldn’t it be great if they had a one of a kind case, fit to their tastes? I would have liked that when I was a kid.
Here’s my thought on spending a little extra time on something for your child to take to school. Schools used to be a relatively safe place. Children went to get an education, they respected their teachers and each other. When they got home from school, mom was waiting for them with a nice snack and some conversation. Ah, the good old days.
Now, there is no discipline in school. Teachers don’t have control and there isn’t much they can do about it. Kids not only have no respect for each other, but they have lost self respect as well. In a lot of instances, there is no one at home waiting to talk to them. Bullying is rampant. You hear about too many cases of children being bullied to the point of breaking. It’s a sad place for so many kids.
I know a little pencil case won’t change the world. However, wouldn’t it be great if when your kids looked in their binder or took a pencil out of their case, they saw the case you made them and felt your love while in the midst of chaos? Just my thought. What do you think?
