Almost time for the kids to go back to school. This is the ideal time to start preparing. My 6 year old is excited to go back, but still has some anxiety.
Dr. Ashley Miller with BC Children’s Hospital says young children often worry about missing their parents or not liking their teacher, while older kids worry about fitting in with friends and excelling in their classes.
She says now is a good time to start talking about heading back, and slowly moving bedtimes earlier so that waking for school isn’t such a shock.
Also a good time to start scaling back on their screen time.
