Spring forward, fall back. The autumn daylight savings time change is the “good” one because we gain an hour. Still, the sudden change in time (and when it gets dark outside) isn’t always an easy transition for kids. Plan for the change and be prepared to deal with a little readjustment. It’s getting darker earlier, so get the house ready for more indoor time.
As you go through the house and change the clocks, use it as a reminder to check those other things you should check a couple of times each year. Replace the batteries in your smoke/carbon monoxide detectors, check your fire extinguisher, and rotate the mattresses.
