In a few, short days our beautiful little people will head back to school. For most families it’s a combination of excitement mixed with sadness because the school holidays are over. For some, like us, back to school time is quite challenging due to back to school anxiety. Much to my surprise I’ve realised that we are not alone, there are many families who struggle at this time of year.
Now back to school jitters are completely normal and fade after a few weeks but for children who struggle with anxiety, it can be quite stressful.
Signs of back to school anxiety
*If your child complains of these symptoms you should make an appointment to see a doctor to make sure that they don’t have an underlying medical condition.
How can I help my child?
*If your child’s worries start to interfere with their ability to do normal activities please take them to see a doctor.
Don’t forget, meditation and calming, relaxing music and sounds work really well once they are in bed. You can get some fantastic apps like Headspace, Smiling Minds or Relax Melodies. You can head to our Sleep apps blog to read our top 5 apps to help them sleep.
We also highly recommend our Duski Dream Guardians to help them sleep. They combine a colour changing night light (at your desired brightness) and a Bluetooth speaker to stream meditation, sounds and to help them relax at night.
