It's here! Back to school for families across NYS.
While the kids are a mix of anxious, excited, optimistic, and pessimistic, parents are STRESSED. In fact a study from SWNS Digital shows back to school time is the single most stressful time of the year for parents.
57% of parents with school-aged children (between five and 18), consider the back-to-school season the most stressful part of the year. While both parents and kids worry each time a new school year starts, it seems parents worry far more, with 29% of parents concerned about the new school year, as compared to only 12% of students.
Here are the Top 5 things parents are worried about:
- Will their kids have good teachers?
- Eating Healthy at School
- The cost of supplies
- If their kid will make friends.
