Back-to-school advice from Bills dads

Posted Sep 2, 2014

As Western New York kids head back to school this week, we asked a handful of Bills dads for some words of wisdom for kids, moms and dads alike.

C.J. Spiller

“Be attentive, kids!”

Fred Jackson

“You’ve got a little bit of a break now moms. You’ve got the kids going off to school. Enjoy it because they do come home at the end of the day. Enjoy that peace. The dads are out of the house and the kids are out of the house so it’s a good time to relax.

“For the kids, enjoy being at school with your friends. Maybe you saw some friends during the summer but you get to see all of them now. I know my son couldn’t wait to get back to school to see a lot of his friends so it’s a lot of fun for him.”

Kyle Williams

“The happiest person alive that the kids are going back to school this week is my wife. We have two going back to school who are about to make her pull her hair out. So, to all the moms who made it through the summer: congratulations, they’re about to go back to school.”

Scott Chandler

“Be nice to your teachers, get on their good side, and it will go well for you.

“Moms, take some time for yourself. Go get a manicure or a pedicure. This is my first time sending one full time, so don’t cry.”

Lee Smith

“Last year was my son’s first year in school so with our schedule, the main lesson I learned was to make sure you ask them every single day what happened, what’s going on. You never know if there’s a bully on the bus or if they’re struggling with their writing or their classmates are ahead of them and they notice it. Just make sure you talk to them every day and see how their day went to make sure they’re doing well.”

Frank Summers

“Learn something new every day.”
