Tackling that particular parenting challenge is the whole point of our sister site over at SchoolFamily.com. I hope you'll take some time to check it out. I find helpful new stuff on there nearly every day.

Perhaps most interestingly, we've just added a brand-new "community" section on SchoolFamily.com. It's a great place to connect with other parents and find solutions to the kind of school challenges (and joys!) you may be having with your family. I really like the interactive Q&A section, too.

As an added bonus, if you're a PTO Today fan, the new SchoolFamily.com community functions provide a nice sneak preview of what's coming soon for ptotoday.com. Expect even more cool functionality in the ptotoday.com version.
