August is here and the start of a new school year is just ahead. Many families find this exciting while others dread it in anticipation of homework, early mornings, and school stress. But all parents want their children to have a successful school year. Here are seven tips to help every child reach that goal.

"What is one thing you learned today?" is a nice question for everyone to answer at the dinner table. Ask your children daily about their school day.
