How to Ease Those Back-To-School Jitters

Date: January 31, 2018

Welcome back to school in 2018. There is so much for our students to look forward to, but also so much to process as a new year begins. All of us get a case of the jitters as the year begins again. Here is a bit of wisdom from the Parenting place to help us help our children.
God bless for the year ahead.

Director of Student Development

How to Ease Those Back-To-School Jitters

What’s happening in the brain when we’re anxious?
When we don’t know what to expect from a new environment it is totally understandable to feel a little anxious. Anxiety is when our brains and bodies become really busy finding all the evidence to support the things that we worry about.

Instead of, “You are over-thinking it” try, “Tell me about it”
When we dial down our kids worry with, “It will be okay”, we are hoping to make their worry smaller, but as we push away their worries we are also leaving them to cope with it all alone. Being alone with their worry is really scary for kids.

Instead of, “There is nothing to worry about” try, “That sounds scary”
When your child tells you all about their worry it will probably be irresistible not to interrupt with all the reasons why they don’t need to worry. Stop. Breathe. Instead, try calmly continuing to listen.

Instead of, “It will be okay” try, “It makes sense that you feel worried”
Letting your child know that it’s understandable to feel worried means they don’t need to ‘worry about being worried’ and you get it. Let your child know that it makes sense to be worried about those things, because they sound scary. In other words, “It makes sense”.
