Back to School: How to Care Well

“Almost time for school to start!” is a phrase that raises many possible emotions in parents and children. For some, there’s excitement and anticipation. For others, anxiety (or even dread!) is more likely.

One thing is for sure: going back to school means there is a change afoot for everyone involved. We’ve collected tips from Cindi Reynolds, an experienced school counselor and mom to a teenage daughter. Cindi offers us wisdom for parents and kids alike in her articles on coping with back-to-school jitters and helping a child who doesn’t want to go to school.

Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, teacher, aunt, uncle, or loving neighbor, opportunities abound for you to care well for the people in your life who are about to experience the transition we call “back-to-school.”
