Back to school is the perennial Fall topic that is well worth the attention it gets.

Original WNDU news story: Back To School

The new school year is the childhood New Year with all the pristine hopes and excitement adults often bring to their January 1 celebrations and resolutions. Children are at their best in the fall, open and ripe for new routine and skills. With a little forethought and timing, children and families can find a new flow and structure for family harmony. I usually emphasize sleep and morning routines as foundational in the childhood New Year.
