A NEW survey* of school children has found the most common back to school concerns for youngsters is their relationships with classmates and teachers. As the summer break ends 38% spend time thinking about making (and keeping) new friends and 17% contemplate who will be sitting next to them in class. 31% wonder about what their new teacher will be like whilst 8% worry where their new classroom will be.
A mere 5% of children surveyed said they were excited about starting back at school, with girls (7%) proving slightly more enthusiastic than boys (3%). Luckily there is help at hand in the lead up to that nerve racking first day when emotions are running high.
The first day back at school is a big day so parents should have a secret weapon against tiny tears on standby in the school run bag.
