By now the new schedules have been put in motion and the after school arrangements and programs have either been working out or are still being finalized. New schools, grades and teachers have become more familiar in the weeks since school began and our kids are adjusting to the new routines.

In this issue Denise Yearian has shared some ideas about how to look for a tutor. I know in my family there were subjects that warranted extra study and one-on-one strategies, and we were all glad we found good part time tutors to make the classroom experience more successful. Be sure to check out her 10 tips in choosing the right tutor.

Myrna Beth Haskell is always a welcome contributor to our editorial and this month she has shared with us a compelling article about bullying that I urge every parent/caregiver to read. Please make sure to pass it on. Issues such as bullying are of the utmost importance, and as parents, we need to be as informed as we can be.

Every October we highlight articles about teens and present a special advertising section to draw attention to the High School Open Houses going on around New York. This year is no exception, and in fact, we are pleased to highlight two stories about teens excelling in our area. The prestigious Brooklyn Tech has taken honors for its student government and a group of teens from around the city has garnered awards as STEM innovators. Exciting stuff!

It’s important as parents to keep in mind that your toddlers of today will be teens before you know it. It’s absolutely amazing how quickly it all whizzes by and how responsibilities and disciplines you thought were years away suddenly find themselves manifest in your family’s life. It’s important to keep your options open for future school choices and it’s never too early to begin discovering what would work best for your family.

Enjoy the mostly gorgeous month of October and have a safe and Happy Halloween.

Thanks for reading.
