Anxiety and the Beginning of a New School Year

Although most of our students are 12-14 years old, anxiety is a real problem that many of them face. Even the most outgoing children can struggle with the nerves of the first day of school so much that it becomes overwhelming. These feelings can last for a long or short period of time, but it is important that our children know that the adults in their lives are supportive and understanding. Here are some tips for how to help your student understand those feelings and overcome them so that they are able to have a successful start to the new school year. Please be sure to contact our counselors if you ever have any concerns about your student. We wish everyone a great start to the 2019-2020 school year at MJH!
