ParentMap, September 2013


The sun might still be in the sky (for a little while, at least) but don't doubt it: Fall is almost here. It's back to school, baby, and while we'll miss the lazy days of summer, many of us are ready for a new year to get underway. Dive in with our feature on peer pressure, which nearly every child faces at some point (at younger and younger ages).

We also bring you sound advice on competition (how much is too much, at what age?); how to address academic cheating; and what common parenting advice you can just go ahead and ignore (!).

But it's not all school stuff. Fall is a glorious time to escape to places unknown with the family and soak in some pretty amazing arts offerings.

Good luck with the back-to-school hustle, and happy fall!
