The first day of school can be a daunting task but we all had to experience it. Some kids look forward to going back to school while others dread it.

Getting up early again for a teenager after sleeping in for three months can be a challenge in itself. When you share one bathroom with several siblings that throws extra angst into the morning rush. I'm sure my brother thought his little sisters were bathroom hogs. He liked to tease us too much.

Returning to a familiar school after Summer break is not as nerve-racking as starting a new school. Kids do not make it easy on each other.
