Teacher-Proven Tips For Parents Preventing Back-To-School Stress


The start of a new school year is a time of mixed emotions for parents and students alike.

While specific concerns may be different across parents and students, they all ultimately spring from a lack of preparedness for the new demands that come with a new school year – ex. conquering homework, staying organized, meeting new teachers, packing lunches, making friends, etc.

The first few weeks of a new school year is when parents should be on high alert for fixing student problems that can persist for the next 8 months – or even longer.


Current school demands and practices have placed a large amount of added pressure on today’s students, in comparison with those of the past. This, mixed with the multitasking mindset brought on by today’s reliance on technology, can easily lead to overly stressed students who lack the attention span to complete their work.

To combat this, we need to help students develop proper working and study habits, and show them a strong educational support system.


By taking a dive into some of the most common back to school concerns, we have developed some teacher-proven plans and preparation tips for parents to help students start (and continue) the new school year on the right foot.
