Back to school, nerves are commonplace, but it does not make it easier to deal with. The most important thing you can do for a child who is suffering from nervousness at school is not to let them feel their feelings, rather to assure them. The following are some things you can do to help your children cope again in school:
First, make sure they know they are not alone: If your child is very nervous about school , simply remember that most kids are a little uneasy or anxious about the first day of school. Everyone worried about the same things, and feels lost and confused. If a kid does not feel like one in his emotions, they will be able to deal with them better. You can also let them know that their teachers know that students are worried about the first day of the school and that they can ask their teachers for questions they want. They will usually feel much better if they know that their teachers are sensitive to their nervousness and do what they can to help them adjust and feel good.
Second, helping them remember good things about going back to school: If you can focus on good and point out all the fun and exciting things to go back to school, it can help to spend some nervousness. Remind your child that they will see friends from previous years, have the opportunity to meet new friends, are one year older, be able to participate in sports groups, music groups, and other outside courses to meet more people. Help them find something positive about starting school and focusing on it.
Third, do what you can to hire the community: Kids are always less anxious to turn to something if they don't have to do it themselves. Find another child in the neighborhood or class with whom they can go to school, so they do not enter the house alone. Both children are likely to be grateful for their fellowship.
Fourth, make sure your child knows you are available if you need it. : Most kids are nervous about going back to school but if they know they have support systems in place, they, or at home waiting for them when they return, they feel much less worried.
You know your child, so talk to them about specific concerns and see what you can do to remedy them. If they are worried about being lost, take them to school and help them find important places like cafeteria, library, and their bedroom. If they are worried about friends, assure yourself and see what you can do to encourage their children to hang out with them.
