Ask a Doc: Back to School Tips
Once again the school shopping frenzy has begun and this week our youngest, and last two, are off to college.

I’ve learned some lessons from all these Septembers as a pediatrician and father of five. I offer this list, my top ten steps for success in school-age parenting, but with full disclosure that, sometimes I failed to follow all of these tips and thus learned the consequences of not doing so myself. That said, I think all of our children, despite my failures, turned out to make us proud.
