The transition period from summer vacation to school is perhaps one of the more stressful times of any given year. This is true not just of students, but also of parents. During summer vacations, it is typical for parents and their kids to stay up late and wake up late doing all kinds of stuff, from watching TV and DVDs to playing board games late into the night.
