Cranky mornings?

If mornings have been tough and/or evenings combative, it could be because your child needs more sleep in these first weeks of school. Even when school is going well and children are happy, a new school year brings some level of excitement and stress for kids. Many children need more sleep in the first weeks of every new school year. Try making bed time a half hour earlier - it could make a big difference in that morning outlook.
