Back to school blues – or reds or greens or yellows?


It’s nearing that time of year already, and whether you loathe it or love it, your little ones are soon to go back to school. Or, for some, your little ones are heading off to school for the first time.

Some children will be really excited about the prospect of being a big boy or girl and going to school and some will be tentative, even scared. Many will change their minds sometime during the first week, those who were excited and loved it at first might change their mind and suddenly decide that they have ‘done that’ now and school isn’t somewhere they really want to spend any more time. Some who were tentative may suddenly be rushing out the door each and every morning to get to school on time.

However your little one feels and whatever they do, it is our job as parents to make the experience as fun and positive as possible.
