Now lockdown is easing, the Government have said that children must return to school in September. Schools have been busy interpreting the Government advice and the term “bubble” now has a new meaning in our society. For children and families, the last months are likely to have been tough. The majority of children will have missed socialising with their friends and some will have missed the routine of school. It is likely that children and young people will have varying degrees of anxiety about returning to school in the same way that some adults may have felt that anxiety when returning to work. For children, their anxiety may be compounded by any anxiety they observe in their parents or other adults within their family. We hope that these 10 tips will help to prepare your child (and you) for the transition back to school.
