Back to School Tips for Parents

Summertime is coming to an end, and with that comes all of the back to school anxiety and jitters that are common amongst children. Your child may experience common physical effects of anxiety associated with back to school time including symptoms from stomachaches to sleeping problems. They will also experience emotional stress from the fear of making new friends, meeting new teachers, fears of being bullied, pressure of making good grades, and worries of being unpopular. With that said, it important for parents to first remember that these physical and emotional feelings are very common, and even the most well-adjusted kids are bound to feel some sort of pressure when they return to school.

The question becomes: what can parents do to help their children cope with the physical and emotional stresses associated with the back to school season? In this article, I will provide you with some tips that I’ve shared with parents in the past that have deemed to be very helpful.


Haters are going to Hate

Haters are going to hate

 

I love my teenagers.  I mean seriously, they are some of the best people I know.  But every so often I hear, "Mrs. Rueckert, this person said...." fill in the blanks. Now first instinct is to be shocked, or to pat them on the back.  Or better yet try to deflect their hurt feelings but instead I tell them something that inspires me.  I thought of all the inspirational things I should say like, “ seize the day, follow your heart”, but we have heard these things over and over again, you can buy a poster with these sayings on it.  I decided to be more real with them.  So Here is my little piece of wisdom.  As you grow up you will find more frequently than not, “Haters are gonna hate” so don’t allow yourself to be affected by haters and don’t become a hater.  Ok there it is my nugget of wisdom.  On the surface it seems rather shallow and meaningless advice, until you realize what haters really mean.  Haters is an acronym for Having anger towards everyone reaching success.
