Parents get headaches too!

Whether you love it or loathe it, back-to-school season is still in full swing! School supplies have been purchased, back-to-school outfits bought and worn, lunches planned; but that doesn’t eliminate the headaches that come with having a child in school for the rest of the year. Need I mention sports practices, after school activities…..I could go on!

Why do parents get headaches?

According to a recent survey by the makers of Excedrin®, more than one-third of parents* cite getting themselves (41%) and their children (43%) back on a schedule at the top of the list of things that might cause their headaches during the back to school season. And a large majority of parents (85%) think their schools are in need of new or upgraded supplies such as pencils and paper and computers or software and gym/sporting equipment. Now with every purchase of Excedrin®, parents can enter for a chance to win $10,000 for their child’s school.

If you’re one of those parents, it’s probably a good idea to remember to put Excedrin® on your shipping list, along with pencils and folders. The good news is, with that purchase you’re able to enter for a chance to win $10,000 for your child’s school through the “Help Your School Excel with Excedrin” Sweepstakes!
