Girls. They are everything from sweet to sassy, pure princess to rugged explorer. Preschool girls are the first to throw on a beautiful, pink fluffy party dress, only to head outside and jump in a muddy puddle. Young girls are also the first to develop feelings of inadequacy – with some reporting such feelings as early as 9 and 10 years old. In an effort to keep those feelings at bay and help our preschoolers develop feelings of self-worth well before those formidable years of middle and high school, we created a reading list that includes fun, enjoyable books that will work to foster a high sense of self-worth, self love, power, confidence, acceptance and kindness… as well as develop a love for reading from the very beginning.
Back to school season can be overwhelming, even for the most seasoned parents. Each year there seems to be new gear, new trends, and new tools to help your child succeed during the school year. This guide, in conjunction with our Back to School Bash on Facebook Live, provides you with some of the best back-to-school items out there. From backpacks to school supplies, games to snacks, tools to memory keepers, we’ve got you covered.

The new school year is right around the corner (in some areas, it has already begun!). Back to school clothes shopping can be stressful and chaotic, trying to brave the mall with all the other last-minute shoppers. We’ve rounded up the latest designs from some of our favorite brands in our 2016 Fashion and Beauty Guide to make this year’s shopping stress-free.
Here at Daily Mom, we know that finding the right back-to-school shoes for your kids is just as important as finding the right clothing and gear. Kids’ feet grow so quickly; and from school to activities to kick-ball at recess, their shoes tend to wear out in the blink of an eye. That’s why we’ve rounded up the newest styles from our very favorite brands – and they’re our favorites for a reason. These shoes are stylish, modern, durable and made to be played in. (Don’t worry, we have a special recommendation for busy moms too!)
Part of starting school is packing a lunch. Packing a homemade lunch is often healthier than buying lunch at school. Having a cool new lunchbox, water bottle or food container makes packing a lunch fun. Think outside the brown paper bag and get some lunch gear that will protect your culinary creations, keep cold stuff cold and make it easy for your kids to enjoy their mid-day meal away from you. This is the best lunchbox gear you will find anywhere!
Back to school season is upon us and for all families this means running around trying to find the best, cutest, and most helpful items for the school year. There is so much information to sift through when it comes to back to school items, even for the most seasoned parents. But Daily Mom is here to help you gear up for the new year. From backpacks to shoes, games and activities to snacks, organizational tools and memory keepers – we have you covered for the new school year.
We have partnered with several brands to bring you some of the things you need to get you and your children started off on the right foot, and we are bringing them to you LIVE on our Facebook page on Monday, August 22nd at 1 PM EST. Check out the information below to learn more so you don’t miss out on some cool gear and amazing giveaways!
The early school years are such a precious time. Your young child is just getting the hang of what school is like and his brain is a sponge, soaking up all that there is to learn. The curiosity of preschoolers and kindergartners is inspiring. Make the most of the first school years with the right stuff. We have all your preschool and kindergarten essentials here for you in one place!
You picked up all the classic back to school items. The first day of school outfit is hanging in the closet, lunchbox is ready to be packed, pencils and crayons are neatly placed in that brand new backpack. We have some gear that you probably didn’t think of but will definitely make for a school year that is more organized, efficient and simple. Here we have our Unique Gear Guide for the best school year ever!
As your daughter heads back to school this year, her clothing should be unique, practical and (above all) stylish. The clothing should reflect who she is, from sporty to a tiny fashionista. FabKids has all the options to mix and match to create an individual look, that’s perfect for back to school. Read on to see our style guide for girl’s back to school 2016 with FabKids.
Whether school already began for your kids or their first day back is right around the corner, one thing is for sure: they can’t take just any old backpack. From preschoolers to the high school bound, we’ve rounded up our favorite picks of backpacks to suit anyone’s needs. These backpacks are not only functional and durable, but modern and stylish for any personality.
Pretend with us, just for a moment, that your family has adopted a new pet. You bring her home and anxiously set her down on the floor, and watch her adapt to her new surroundings. You may giggle at her as a family, and spend a better part of your day watching her run around your kitchen floor. Then you put her to bed and retire for the night. When you wake up, you gently give her a pat, and thank her for the cleanest kitchen floors you’ve ever seen.
Wait, what? We’re clearly talking about our newest member of the family; our sleek and suave robotic floor cleaner named bObi. Read on to hear about a game changer in the automatic vacuum world.
As parents, we know that it can’t always be easy to get your child into a car seat. Sometimes they are not happy to go in the car and complain about being uncomfortable while riding. We have all faced the sad looks and the whiny voices, many times even before strapping them in. It can be a battle! One company knows these challenges first hand and they have constructed a car seat that can handle almost any fussy car rider.
Not only are these car seats comfortable, but Recaro makes sure that they are tested very carefully for safety. Recaro has just released its new convertible car seat, the Roadster XL, and provides three amazing elements to its passengers – safety, comfort and convenience!
Choosing the right car seat for your child once you’re ready to forward-face isn’t always as easy as you’d think. You can certainly ride out the life-expectancy of your convertible car seat; but at some point, you’ll need to promote your child to a booster seat. Of course, it’s gotta be safe, but you also want a car seat that is relatively easy to install and comfortable for your child. Furthermore, considering we don’t love the idea of moving any kid straight into a belt-positioning booster seat, you’ll want to look for a high-back booster seat that offers an internal 5-point harness with the option to move to a belt-positioning booster as your child gets bigger.
With that in mind, Recaro’s Performance Sport Combination Car Seat is for children that are at least 2 years old and over thirty pounds. We love it for a variety of reasons, but we especially love that it will likely be the last forward-facing car seat your child will ever need. Read on to discover more about this incredible combination car seat.
