The Ultimate Parent’s Guide: How to Cope With Back-to-School Stressors

The Ultimate Parent’s Guide: How to Cope With Back-to-School Stressors

Madison Williams on Sep 15th 2022

Fall is approaching which means most kids have been back in school for around a month. While there are benefits that come with school year routines, that doesn’t mean you don’t have a lot on your plate as a parent. As fellow moms, we understand how many hats you wear every day just to get it all done. That’s why our daily toolboxes are full of a THC-free CBD tincture, CBD relief sticks, and plenty of other hemp goodies.

Our team recently shared some back-to-school tips for kids, but in this blog, we wanted to dive into resources that parents can use during the hustle and bustle of school. In this article, we’re going to share some of our team’s tips for coping with back-to-school stressors.

Lake Country Growers Struggles and Solutions: Parent Edition

Common Parent Struggle #1: How to Keep it All Together?

Lake Country Growers Farmily

One of the common parent struggles is keeping it all together! School season brings new responsibilities and deadlines that can feel exhausting, especially if you have multiple kids. Co-founder of the Farmily, Rebecca, has two high school-aged kids, Addison, seventeen, and McAllister, fourteen.

Her top priority is staying involved in her kid's life and making sure they don’t fall behind. When children start a new grade, they might be challenged with educational and social struggles. It can be difficult for kids to open up due to fear or nervousness that you’ll be disappointed in them. If it’s not that, they are probably stuck in that all-to-well-known teenage aloofness.

Whatever it may be, once procrastination sets it in for kids, it can take parents far too long to find out about the projects, assignments, or deadlines that need to be met. That’s why clarity and stress management is so important for busy moms. So how do you cope and stay present enough to stay on top of everything?

Solution: Enhance Clarity With Exercise and Self Care

Rebecca’s tip for staying sane is to make her exercise time non-negotiable. It’s easy to dismiss working out as another task on your already overloaded to-do list, however, it’s all about setting yourself up for success. When you get those happy endorphins flowing, you are able to stay present with your kids and think ten steps ahead. For Rebecca, exercise is always about enriching her mental health and threshold for stress.

THC-free CBD tincture

She takes the THC-free CBD tincture every day to stay calm, cool and collected under pressure. Her favorite exercise companion is the CBD relief stick since it’s easy to use on the go and aids in her recovery for the day ahead. If you want to buy CBD online, we recommend you explore the Lake Country Growers collection. CBD essentials are the perfect mix of function and self-care, helping you get stuff done while ensuring you don’t sweat the small stuff.

Parent-to-Parent Advice: Rebecca’s Takeaway

“My advice for parents would be to not take everything so seriously, embrace the season of life your child is in! As a parent of high schoolers, I realize so many of the things I ‘freaked out’ about really were no big deal.”

Common Parent Struggle #2: How to Stay Organized and Go With The Flow?

CBD for stress and clarity

Whether you are a stay-at-home mom, entrepreneur, or go into the office every day, there’s alot of scheduling that takes place as a parent. For many of us, we welcome school routines because they get our kids back into a consistent regimen. That being said, there are a lot of extra tasks to keep track of including signing permission slips, washing uniforms, paying fees, reading classroom procedures, driving to and from extracurricular activities, and the list goes on. So how do you stay organized and restore balance in your life?

Solution: Plan Ahead and Create Success Strategies to Stay on Track

Another fellow mom on our team shared some helpful tips for cracking down on organization and overwhelm. As a mom who runs her own business, Brooke takes every opportunity to create a plan, list or color-coded Google calendar to stay on track. She has two kids, Roby, fifteen, and Riley, eleven, so her priority is to ensure her kids have the tools they need to succeed. Brooke meal plans and creates ‘recipes for success’ that her kids can rely on when they are overwhelmed, or need a push in the right direction.

To take care of herself, Brooke wakes up early to pray, read the Bible, and drink a cup of coffee while the house is still quiet. Once she finishes up her morning ritual, she takes one of her favorite 1500mg full spectrum CBD gummies in the pineapple flavor. By adding a pure and potent dose of CBD to her morning, Brooke finds herself well-equipped to manage anxiety and overwhelm. Better yet, she’s able to stay patient through the thick of life, which is essential when you’re a mom of two.

Parent-to-Parent Advice: Brooke’s Takeaway

“The most helpful thing we have done with our children every year before school is guide them in creating a "Recipe for Success.' We ask them to think about a time when they felt super successful and good about family, school and friends. We ask them what they did during those times that make them feel good. As parents, we add a few things that we need to help our family be successful (i.e. chores, expectations, etc.) Then we wrote them all out so that when they start to falter or get discouraged they can always come back to their 'Recipe for Success.'”
