We know that transitioning back to school after a 3-month break can be tough for both children and parents. For some children, anticipating a new grade, a new classroom, a new teacher, making friends, facing bullies, feeling “uncool” or coping with academic pressures can fuel anxiety, even dread. This anxiety may be experienced through such symptoms as headaches, stomachaches, sleep difficulties, and even school refusal. 

Back 2 School will help parents understand how to help their anxious child transition back to school. We will discuss the "morning routine," what to do if your child refuses school, and many other challenges that your child may have with returning to school. Parents will also have an opportunity to ask “What do I do when….” questions.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Parents of school aged children 5-17 years old who may have trouble transitioning back to school.
