GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Some students across the east are probably catching a case of the back to school jitters.
In just a few weeks, it will be time for many of them to head back to class.
Experts say parents you can help your child cope, by talking to them about their anxious feelings, as well as getting them back on a regular sleep schedule and making sure they eat a nutritious breakfast on their first day.
The most important thing to remember is the feelings are normal.
“They feel nervous, but we grown-ups do too,” said Terese Ewing, lead counselor, South Central High School. “And we’re all very excited about them coming, and that’s what they need to know. We’re here to help them, and we can’t wait for them to be back here.”
School counselors are available if your child has a difficult transition.
