Even though summer is in full swing, fall is waiting patiently just around the corner. That means parents will soon start prepping for back-to-school. While getting your kids excited about school is even harder than plucking them from the pool, here are some tips for a smarter school year from our friends at Parents magazine.


    For a simple, inspiring homework center, pick up a pegboard (available at hardware stores), and, if needed, have it cut to fit on a door or above a desk. Stock the board with cool school and craft supplies, and your student will be set to ace everything from division to dioramas.
    File this idea away! Cut back on constant reminders with a simple morning chore tracker.
    If your crew's toughest challenge is simply getting out of the house on time, using an eye-catching clock just might catch their attention.
    Labeled drawers give each family member a place to stash those grab-and-go necessities like mittens, bus passes, and shin guards. A fun, wall-hung cubby unit holds small essentials, such as lip balm and sunglasses.
    To keep the drawers neat, gather those little last-minute supplies -— flashcards for the car, grooming goodies for on-the-run touch-ups -—  in take-along bags
