While many viewers will think about the business implications of the series, the producers put the focus at a more personal level. Depending on your local situation, this site could be useful in business, guidance, or similar applications - or simply as a homeroom discussion starter for older students.

This website, created by the American Academy of Pediatrics, provides a basic list of items for parents to think about at the start of the school year. Some are obvious (i.e. what day does school begin), but many are deeper thoughts to ponder.

You may want to post this link on your class website during the summer months so new students (and parents) can take a look at the checklist over the summer break. If you send home a "Back to School" newsletter prior to the start of the school year, be sure to list this link for parents.
