Back to School Stress

As the new school year approaches, parents face additional stressors due to the looming dangers of COVID-19. Most schools are starting with virtual learning or online classes, which creates additional stress for children and parents alike. If your children are required to go in person, there is the stress of learning new teachers and classmates, a more rigorous academic year, or concerns about difficult social situations. Fortunately, children are extremely capable of coping with change and parents can help them in this process. Visit www.apa.org/helpcenter for helpful tips to overcome the stress of the school year.
