Back to School Anxiety

It's Back to School Time! And that may mean anxiety for your child.
Signs that a child may be experiencing more than typical back to school jitters include:
  • Changes in appetite
  • Having trouble sleeping
  • Isolation
  • Excessive crying
  • Emotional outbursts and irritability
  • Refusal to go to school

Tips for a smooth transition:
  • Talk about it
  • Get back to routines
  • Stock the kitchen and pantry with nutritious foods
  • Arrange your schedule to drop off or pick up your child
  • Try to focus more on your child
