Going back to school is a double-edged sword. Some kids love it and others hate it. Some parents count down the days to freedom, while others cherish every moment of summer vacation.

It's good to get back into a schedule, but with that schedule comes homework and waking up early. On the other hand, kids get to see good friends again (and pick up everyone's germs ...) and have a break from siblings, which can actually help them get along better. It's a mixed bag of emotions.
