Day Before Back-to-School Last Hurrah!

August 19th, 2009

Right now, there are nine 11-year olds out in our living room yelling over video games.  This is our son’s last big blast before school starts tomorrow.  We do this every year the day before school starts.  My son arranges for his best buddies to meet at our house for lunch and play time.  Then we would all march up to school when the postings were made for class assignments.  Since he switches to a new middle school this year, all the kids already know to which classes they are assigned. 

This has been a way for us to help our children get through their ”starting a new school year anxieties.”   Connecting back with school friends after the summer months is something my son looks forward to and enjoys.   That is mixed in with the anxiety of a new school, new teachers and a new system.

How do you help your child get over back to school anxiety?
