Back to school can be an exciting time, but it can also be a cause of stress for children.
Moving up a grade level, making the jump from middle to high school, and getting to know new teachers can all be sources of stress.
Doctors say the signs of stress may be subtle.
If your child is having trouble sleeping, loses their appetite, or is more irritable than usual they may be stressed.
Scoping out your child's school ahead of time and meeting teachers is a good way to keep your kid comfortable and ease stress.
