Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats Helps Us Get Ready For A New School Year

Thanks to Mom Central, I heard about a new website called Mom's Homeroom.

My son begins full day Kindergarten in 11 days and I am beyond nervous about it. Beside things being different than originally told at orientation (saving for another post), it is just such a long day 8:50 - 3:20. My poor baby's life is about to change and he has no idea.

Getting our kids ready for hopefully, another successful year at school means doing our homework. As mom's we want our children to succeed, learn, be healthy, have fun, (go ahead and add to this list if you like) and more. Kellogg's knows how hard our job is and have created MSM's Mom's Homeroom.

They have taken four Moms from diverse backgrounds: a teacher, a psychiatrist, a former marketing coordinator, and an obstetrician/gynecologist. The Moms participate in online discussions and post unscripted videos of their views on helping kids succeed academically.

Personally, I love videos. It is like watching the View but on topics that matter to ME! The women sit and discuss everything from food, schedules, friends, communication, shopping for school supplies and more. Beside the moms, there are therapists, teachers, nutritionists and others giving us the motivation and knowledge we need to do the best for our children.

As a helicopter, hands on, referee mom, I learned that letting my child handle situations on their own (as much as it might break my heart), that I am doing them a disservice to step in.

This is a great site and I just added it to my favorites and daily stops.

“I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. In addition, Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.”

  1. I've actually watched it a couple of times because I find it interesting, and you know my boys are already out of the house. Don't worry about your little man, you've done a great job getting him ready -- he'll be fine!! :-)
