August 2014 Issue

It's back-to-school time! In the flurry of preparation that happens as a new school year kicks off, take pause and peruse our issue, which offers a practical guide to better grasping (or questioning) the academic plans and powers in your child’s school in order to better help your child learn. We explore everything from understanding what guides your child's curriculum to the controversy over Common Core standards

We also explore those common struggles that parents and kids face with a new school year, from how to help your child navigate friendship problems to dealing with the empty nest feelings that some parents face as their children begin full-day school. Also, don't miss the fun outing ideas we have lined up in our fall arts roundup and September Play List.
