There are many facets to getting ready for school. So far we've focused on prepping your home and the physical space where your kids will work. This week we're going to focus on the mental preparation you and the kids will need to get through the first few weeks.

Whether your child is heading into the classroom for the first time or returning to a well-liked school, all sorts of issues are bound to crop up in your mind: "How can I help her make nice friends?" "How can I help her with her homework?" "How is my 4-foot-tall darling supposed to lug home a bookbag that's twice as heavy as she is?"

When seeking answers, it's always best to turn to experts. To get the solutions to your back-to-school dilemmas, we asked teachers.
