There’s a lot of anxiety-producing change going on these first few weeks back at school. New grades, classes, teachers, friends and a whole bunch of new rules to follow (like no-lovies in the classroom). We love our friend Heidi’s ingenious and unobtrusive way to give a little extra assurance to her kids. She sends her kids off to school with photos of them holding their lovies taped to the inside of their lunch boxes and backpacks. It’s a clever way to help ease any back-to-school separation anxiety. For older kids, we could see sneaking in a photo of a fun day or a favorite place into a lunch box or book bag on the day of a test, big game or performance.
