Yup, summer is gone, folks, and school “daze” are here.
Unlike other schools in other parts of the Philippines, most schools here in my hometown start in August.
Like it or not, it’s time for both parents and kids to shuttle back to reality and prepare for another school term.
Some welcome the challenge.
I cringe at the prospect.
In either case, the transition from vacation time to school days can be one of the most stressful times of the year for grownups and children alike. Aside from all the fuss and hassle of buying schoolbooks and uniforms, there’s also the need to shed summer routines and adjust to a new schedule – something easier said than done, for many.
