Then you race home trying to beat the bus! Or, how many times have you had to call the school office to relay a message to your child, or your child has called you during the school day?  Think about how disruptive that is to the teachers and your child?) With her homemade version of what was to become mybackpacktags, Kristi found the answer: Provide a child with the tools to be successful, and they will succeed! Every morning on the drive to school, Kristi and her children discuss their after-school plans.

I don’t have time for one more thing in the morning.  Why should I use mybackpacktags?

Communicating plans with your child only takes a moment, and offers numerous benefits.

Children gain independence and confidence when their parents provide them with support and the tools to be successful.  Teachers are free to focus on teaching when they are not handling children’s after-school plans.  (No more distracting, last-minute phone calls and emails throughout the day.)  Parents can go about thier own busy day knowing that their child knows where to go!
