At school we learn to read, write and do math. But it’s not always easy. School can also be a source of stress. If this is true in your life, try some of these tips.
Stress at school is not just academic. Kids have to maintain their studies while participating in school activities, sports, working and nurturing friendships. It can be a tough load if you don’t know how to handle it. Many adults don’t have to juggle that much on a daily basis.
Here are some tips to manage stress
* Stay organized – From the beginning of the school year, make sure that your child is staying on top of their homework and other assignments. Keep a separate notebook for each class so nothing gets lost or misplaced.
* Start early – If you have a project due in three weeks, waiting until the last week could pose a time crunch, especially if other assignments are also due around that time. If you begin now while you have time, you can address any obstacles you might face and finish early. This can reduce the amount of worry you have to deal with.
