It is nearly back to school time!  No school year is complete without Master Lock!

Master Lock® has hired a new specialist on student life to help students safely and securely navigate this school year in style. The Master Mind, a suave and funny college grad, is staring in a humorous online video series on in which he, along with his clever Little Sister, are setting out to answer students’ most frequent, awkward and perplexing questions on

Parents and students are invited to submit their own questions for the Master Mind and participate in daily sweepstakes for a chance to win back-to-school must-haves, including popular Master Lock school and campus security products.

Some of the best advice I can offer students is to remember these days and enjoy! They go by way to fast! Moms and Dads, communication is the most important!

Here are some additional tips for a successful back to school year!

Put together an emergency pack for the car. No matter how hard you try, you will run late some mornings, and your child won't have time for breakfast, brushing teeth, or braiding hair. For those situations, create an emergency pack filled with a sports bar, hairbrush, barrettes, sugarless gum (cleans teeth), and a few dollars for lunch money.

Get to bed early. The most important yet hardest thing to do for your kids is get them to bed early on school nights--that Sunday through Thursday nights.
Do as much as possible the night before school. Pick out their outfits the night before, or let them choose and often times, I make luches the night before also. Sometimes on Sunday nights I'll chop up vegetables and fruit and put them in plastic bags and containers to use throughout the week. When we do some prep work the night before, mornings are less chaotic.

Finally, HAVE FUN!!
