Is your Child Ready for Middle School?
Are You?

With new teachers, classes, friends, activities - even a new building, middle school can feel a bit overwhelming for your child…and for you.

Starting middle school isn’t like other school years. Kindergarteners are wide-eyed and shiny. Grade-schoolers are color-coding their folders and sharpening their pencils. High schoolers are gossiping over who hung out together over the summer and wondering how many days until break.
Then there are the middle schoolers — kind of like the middle child in the family. They’re straddling the line between “little kid” and “big kid.” And, now with the start of school upon you both, fears can begin to mount.


Top fears for kids include:

● not being able to work combination locks or find classes
● using the restroom at school
● undressing in the locker room
● being late for class
● not having friends
● being bullied
● being too different
● tough classes

And your fear?
That this will happen to your child.

All of this can leave both you and your child feeling a bit more anxious and overwhelmed during the first few weeks of school.
