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. Watching them leave is “bitter-sweet” for my wife and I but also a time to reflect back on the past years' positive, and sometimes not-so-positive, outcomes. 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.
