Dealing With Back-to-School Jitters - Part 4 of a 5 Part Series

If your child is dreading their return to the classroom, try these solutions!

Going from long, lazy summer days back to the rigors of a classroom can be a bumpy road for your child. It is normal for them to experience a range of emotions about returning to school. Though each child responds to going back to school differently, you can take steps to address jitters and make the transition time smoother.

GETTING HELP: Most back-to-school anxiety is anticipatory. If the level and type of anxiety seems a marked departure from your child's usual behavior and lasts well past the beginning of the school years, consider seeking outside help. Start by talking with their teacher. Next, a school counselor or psychologist can provide valuable tips and resources. Anxiety disorders do affect children and are often overlooked because such children do not tend to act out.
