Back to School: Getting rid of anxiety

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Springdale Elementary School in Macon offers tips parents can use to help their little ones relieve some stress and anxiety about starting pre-school. 

Counselor Stacey Creter says it’s important parents serve as the example, because their preschoolers feed off the parent’s emotion. 

A few tips: 

  • Remain calm
  • Set the tone for your child
  • Talk about his or her fears
  • Shop for school together
  • Practice for the experience
  • Get a good night’s sleep and breakfast the next day
  • Don’t linger around the school when you drop your child off 
  • Try not to cry 
  • Send them to school with a comfort item 
  • Plan an after school activity when they get home
