Review medication.

Was your child off medication during the summer? If so, you may want to restart it a week or two before school begins. Ask your doctor.

Set goals together.

Sit down with your child and brainstorm what he might achieve in the school year. Focus on strengths, as well as on areas that need improvement.

Make the goals attainable. Meeting goals empowers a child to meet tougher challenges later in the year.
