Beating the Back to School Blues
August is here and that means that back to school time is quickly approaching. The lazy days of summer are winding down and this can be a challenging time of year for children. It can bring about anxiety, causing unexplained moodiness and negative attitudes. Some kids struggle with getting back into a structured routine and others are already starting to experience stress as they think about the pressure to perform academically. This all can lead to your child feeling overwhelmed and frustrated.
