During the school year our precious little ones are at school with their teachers and friends more than they are at home with us. It can be a scary feeling for us as parents as well as for our children. Though for us as stay/work at home moms it can also be a feeling of relief because we have a little more free time and quiet in the house. Know what I mean? Lol!
When my children go to school, I want them to feel loved and cherished by their teachers, of course. Just in case they are having a bad day or feeling frustrated, I wanted to find a way to give them a pick me up even though mom isn’t there at school with them. So I decided to send lunch box notes! If you have never thought about sending them, here are some reasons you should! I asked some moms on Facebook and they chimed in too!
- Let them know they are loved. So they know momma loves them and aren’t seeking love or attention elsewhere.
- It let’s them know you are thinking of them during the school day. My daughter told me that I am happy she is going back to school because I will be by myself. I told her I will still have her little brother with me. Sending notes lets her know that I am still thinking about her even though she isn’t home with me anymore.
- They make your child smile. Who doesn’t love that!?
- To encourage your child. They may be feeling like they are having a bad day and can’t do things right. A lunch box note will encourage them, remind them that they can accomplish anything, and let them know mom is rooting for them!
- Help them maintain a positive mindset at school. We as parents help shape our child’s inner dialogue about themselves. We should be intentional about this and sending positive notes is a great help! I designed these inspirational lunch box notes to send with my daughter and these to send with my son because sometimes I get busy and forget to write a note for them. As moms we help shape our child's inner dialogue. Sending positive lunch box notes is a great help! Click To Tweet
- Keep their focus on God and their goals during the school day. With so much going on, kids may forget about their goals and a note will remind them. My child’s teach from last year said that she loved that we wrote what our son needed to focus on each day. A great idea is to include a scripture that you and your child(ren) can talk about at the end of the day.
- Because you are a momma and you rock! Well, you do!
