DealDash Kids: Tips to Make the Most of the School Year


By this time your child should have already started school or will be starting next week. Here are some tips to help them make the most of the school year.

It’s important for kids of all ages to have a great school year. However, sometimes it is very difficult for younger kids to have a great school year. These kids are complete “newbies” at knowing what to expect from school. Here are some tips to help younger kids get settled and more familiar with what they should do to help themselves have a fun and educational school year. Read on for more information from DealDash.

It’s Okay to Not Know Anyone

Remember, a stranger is “just a friend we haven’t met yet.” If this is your child’s first year at school or if they just don’t know anyone in their class this year, then this is an important thing to tell them. If they don’t know anyone in their classroom this year, that just means that they have even more of a chance to meet their new BFF.

Just Be Yourself

Kids as young as 5 will be in classes this year, and surprisingly even kids this age are worried about fitting in. I have 2 school-aged kids and volunteer in their elementary school. Sadly, I have heard many comments from very young kids that they are worried that people won’t like them. They are worried about the clothing that they are wearing and not having as many toys and gadgets as their classmates. It important to help your kids realize that the superficial stuff isn’t going to help your kids make true friends. and that a real friend will like you no matter what brand of shoes that you are wearing.

Don’t Be Afraid to Be Smart

Try to impart to your kids that being smart is a good thing. They might see things on TV or online showing smart kids to be “nerdy” or “uncool”. However, the kids who listen and do well in school get to do their dream jobs when they are older. No matter if they want to be an astronaut, a paleontologist, or a veterinarian, all of these careers require a lot of brains and doing well in school. This all comes back to just being yourself. Tell them to be curious, pay attention, and do well in school to be able to grow up and do their dream job.

Picking The Right Office Desk for the Job

DealDash knows that picking the size and shape of your desk should be a consideration of individual style – just how do you desire your office to look – with a functional consideration of the space available – how many desks do I need in the workplace? If you are constricted by space, many compact layout office workdesks are extensively available. Rectangle-shaped bench desks supply an excellent space-saving layout combined with shared architectural parts to lower costs. Call center skins, usually in circular collections of between four and also 8 workdesks are an additional compact, space-saving alternative. If you have more area, ergonomic designed desks such as single wave, dual wave as well as branched – or bow – desks provide a fashionable workplace look with lots of workdesk area. Workdesk sizes normally range 600mm to 1000mm deep and also are available in widths between 800mm and 2000mm. If basic under desk pedestal cabinets are to be used, 1400mm broad workdesks are the minimum I would advise to provide appropriate leg room. If narrow stands are to be utilized, 1200mm wide desks are the minimum width I would advise.


The products made use of for your desks are largely an individual choice, influenced by the look you want to accomplish. DealDash has several types and sizes of desks you can choose from. Melamine faced chipboard (MFC) is one of the most usual product made use of and is normally readily available in a vast array of timber impact coatings and also some fundamental colours. Laminate desks finishes are normally a little much more pricey as well as offer some extra colour selections. Solid wood desks have the tendency to be extremely pricey and are normally booked for executive offices. A cheaper option is a wood veneer desk – a cheaper material, such as chipboard, with a quite thin layer of actual timber used. An important indication of quality is the density of the desk top. Density could range 18mm and also 30mm depending upon the high quality of the desk. This could establish the rigidness of the desk as well as 25mm minimum is recommended unless the office workdesk has a solid under-frame.

The leg design of the desk could also impact the toughness as well as rigidness of the item. Cantilever leg workplace desks are an entry-level style providing lots of leg area, normally at low-cost. Again, an indicator of quality is a dual cantilever leg, with two upright support columns at each side of the desk framework. Another thing to look for is an assistance beam under the desk. This prevails on ‘I’ framework desks as well as bench desks as well as gives outstanding toughness for the work-top.


We suggest you head to DealDash and see what type of desk you can find. You may find several other items that you find out are what you’ve been looking for.
