This is a solo episode by me.
I am having many parents contact me about coping with back to school anxieties.
Our kids are returning to school following 5 months of social distancing and homeschooling.
It is an uncertain time for many families; and many of our children are struggling.
I offer 10 Tips for Parents – to better deal with the Transition of Returning Back to School.
✔️ Notice the Changes in Your Child Behaviour
✔️Focus on the relationship with your child – and not their grades
✔️ Understand the role of Anxiety
✔️ Make Regular check-ins (see the 3 Questions exercise below)
✔️ Your response to events is crucial to your child’s emotional resilience (E+R+O)
✔️ Tech is no longer the villain and destroyer it was once purported to be
✔️ Routine is King
✔️ Validate their feelings
✔️ Offer them problem-solving & coping strategies (see Breathing Strategies below)
✔️ Maintain Balance within the home.
Supporting Parents Build a Mentally Healthier and
Happier Generation of Young People
