PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - I remember when I was a child that I hated the first day of August. The reason was simple: August meant we were closer to the end of the summer.

As a parent, the end of summer is not necessarily a bad thing — but I digress.

The reason I bring this up is that if you have children you need to be thinking about the start of school and the importance of getting those school physicals done and immunizations if necessary. You should be able to get appointments if you make them now.

The other issue is trying to get the kids back on a more reasonable sleep schedule. As the month goes on just start to slowly get them to bed a bit earlier. It will make for a better transition.
