It’s about that time for the kids to head back to school. We thought that COVID would just be a bad memory by now, but it seems it’s here to stay for a little while. So how do your kids feel about going back to school in the time of COVID. How do you as a parent feel and how can we make the most of the situation while still trying to keep our families safe and mitigate any anxiety we might have under the current climate?
This week we look at some of the stress factors that are freaking our kids out with frenzied Back to School activities. From gathering school supplies to orienting yourself to a new school we discuss many of the things that worry teens during this time of year. We’ll talk about concerns fitting in with new students, adjusting your sleep schedule, anxiety over remembering your classes and the general expectations parents, teachers and even students place on themselves.
