Summer holidays are a  time when your child is relaxed and happy without the usual school anxieties and concerns. Not wanting to wish the time away, you know it’ll soon be the usual rush for new school uniforms, shoes etc. but then the anxiety starts!

Last September was the busiest ever month for CHAMPS Confidence coaching for stressed out children, teens and their fraught parents. The emotions of the new term can be overwhelming unless they are addressed and managed in good time. 

Commonly known as the ‘back to school blues’, thousands of kids and teens struggle with anxiety and negative emotions with the thought of returning to school after the holidays, don’t let yours be one of them.

Here are some helpful tips:

  1. Take Positive Action. Don’t allow the emotion to take over. 
  2. Talk about how you feel.
  3. Change your mindset and mental state by asking better questions. A great question is… “What has to happen for me to feel better about School?”
  4. Create a positive outcome. Think about how you would like to feel.
  5. Don’t let people get in your head. Easier said than done… but block them out with positive actions and thoughts. 
  6. Remembers things are NEVER as bad as they first appear. 
  7. Get some anxiety about school coaching to help.

Hope these tips help.
