New School Year, New Anxieties
A lot of parents look toward the school year with fear and anxiety — they know there is a good chance their child is going to have problems in the classroom, either behaviorally or academically. For parents of children with ADHD, ODD, or other special needs, this anxiety can be even more severe.
To help ease back-to-school anxiety, be proactive and start developing a good working relationship with your child’s teacher now.
Remember the three P’s when developing a parent/school relationship: Praise, Prevent, and Plan. Part of planning includes bringing up issues prior to an official parent-teacher conference or scheduled meeting. This can help you and the teacher develop a strategic approach to any challenges your child might face.
