(KUTV) Salt Lake City - Between registering for classes, clothes shopping, and filling a cart with endless piles of notebooks, parents deal with a lot of stress during back-to-school season. Clair Mellenthin with Wasatch Family Therapy joined our Fresh Living hosts to talk about 5 ways parents can cut back on stress while preparing their children for the school year ahead.

5 Ways Parents can Reduce Back-to-School Stress:

  1. Focus on one task at a time
  2. If finances are an issue, make time to meet with a financial adviser at your local bank to set a budget, map out payments, and loo into resources.
  3. It's ok to have your kids chip in! Keep your expectations age appropriate
  4. Set a clothing budget
  5. Take time out for you! Self-care is one of the best ways to help de-stress when life gets busy!
