We are not even through the month of July yet and many parents are already starting to think about back to school supplies.

In fact recently, I noticed that 75% of the supplies had been purchased at my local big box retailer.

Some schools begin the first week of August, while others don’t go back until after Labor Day.

The typical list for moms and dads consists of pens, pencils, erasers, glue, markers, maybe even a protractor.

But there’s one item that parents may want to consider this summer as they prepare to start a new school year.

After all, parents are gearing up their kids for all of those “A” grades right?

So back to school shopping needs to go beyond what goes in the back pack.

That includes shoes, and clothing, eyeglasses, and it means even getting much needed daily medications filled like inhalers for kids that suffer from asthma.

One item that is also a good back to school product for parents to consider is a Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit.

Afterall, in addition to your children forgetting some basic math and history principles over the summer, they may also have experimented with drugs.

SAMHSA just released a study that revealed that June and July are the top two months where teens try drugs for the first time.

Year round, about 4,000 children try drugs for the first time every day. 2,500 of them are abusing pills.

Don’t send your child to school with a budding drug problem.

You send them in new clothes, new shoes, and with new supplies to start off a successful school year.

Why send them to school this 2012 with a hidden problem.

Detecting the experimentation could make the difference in that curiosity, becoming an addiction.

Start the school year right with Teensavers by your side.
