Ah, the first X-Factor teaser advert has just hit our TV screens, which means autumn is just around the corner. Before we know it, the sunshine will be a distant memory, Christmas gifts will sneak their way onto supermarket shelves and fun family BBQs will be replaced with cozy nights in watching DVDs. And, once September rolls around, it means only one thing to families everywhere: the kids are going BACK TO SCHOOL!
As parents, grandparents and caregivers breathe a sigh of relief, many kids will be concerned about what’s in store for them during the new academic year… Complicated algebra lessons? Difficult English homework? Exams just around the corner? It’s important for us to encourage our children to do their best at school, and we can help by providing a quiet little nook for stress-free studying.
