    What can you do? 

    • Set a regular bed time and morning routine.

    • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.

    • Don’t let your child stay home unless she is truly sick. Keep in mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home.

    • If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to teachers, school counselors, or other parents for advice on how to make her feel comfortable and excited about learning.

    • Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbor, or another parent.

    • Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school is in session.
