Anxiety around returning to school
Going back to school is always a stressful time but especially this year. Everyone is going to be somewhat afraid but we need to keep things in perspective. Talk about going to school and reassure your child that everyone is doing their best to keep safe. Calm any fears they have around school work and remind them that everyone was out of school for almost 6 months so everyone has to catch up.
Right now it's important to get back to school, to see the other children, to work alongside classmates with teachers, to play games outside, to have fun with friends and to stay safe.
