Confessions of a Modern Parent
NOT EVERYONE IS HAPPY ABOUT GOING BACK TO SCHOOL
Friday, 12 March
As kids return to school and parents breathe sighs of relief now that Home schooling is done ... NOT everyone is excited about the prospect. For many - going back to school marks the return of worries, fears and anxieties that have been removed for the past year. Bullying, struggling with learning, exams, cramming and trying to catch up with the teaching time that has been “lost” - are we running the risk of RUSHING our kids back into school and running them back into stress and anxiety? Not ALL parents are keen to get rid of their kids ... and not ALL kids are as excited about going back to school as Politicians and Parents think. We take some time to think of those kids and parents for whom a return to school is something to dread, fear or dread. Where are you on the subject of returning to school ? Will you actually miss your kids? Why is it considered strange to say that you actually enjoyed spending more time with your children? Most kids want to see their friends again - they don’t necessarily want to go back to school to do this.
