It's back-to-school season. If you're like most moms, you're worried about something. We polled our readers to find out what moms feel about shopping, academics and back-to-school stress.

It wouldn't be back-to-school season without a few shopping meltdowns. School dress codes and insane supply lists can bring the savviest of moms down. We asked moms about shopping trends and found that over half hadn't budgeted for back-to-school shopping. Moms are also spending more on clothes than school supplies. Does this sound like your back-to-school shopping routine?

Shopping wasn't the only source of back-to-school headaches. Most moms are more concerned about their kids than they are about shopping. Behavior in class, bullying and fitting in were the top three concerns. Moms also yearn for more time to help kids with homework, volunteer and chaperone school trips.
