Script Problem-Processing multiple scripts

Hi All,
I have four scripts to run.
My 1st script will make script2 and script3 to run. I am setting a cron job for this script1 to run continuously.
This script1 will check for 2 text files and based on the existance of those text files it will initiate the script2 and script3.

Now my doubt is that is there a way to know when the script2 finishes its processing and script3 finishes its processing?
Please help me with your ideas.
Thanks,
RSC1985

Script1 could check with ps for example if script2 or 3 are still running. Also you could let them write a pid file and check if it is not cleaned up/deleted or something or compare the Pid in the file with running processes where we are back at ps again.
