In the latest installment of its “Let’s Talk Children’s Health” series, STHS Children’s will provide a back-to-school checklist for parents to help them feel less overwhelmed as the new school year approaches.

It may be hard to image, but the back-to-school season is right around the corner! For children, the first day of school can trigger anxiety as they worry about fitting in, navigating coursework and being away from their families. But kids aren’t the only ones who get stressed out during back-to-school season. 

Knowing school is an important part of their child’s life, parents may feel enormous pressure to help their child realize their full potential from day one, especially if their children will be enrolling in school for the very first time. In addition to worrying about ensuring their children are physically and mentally prepared for a new school year, leading child health concerns for parents, according to a survey by C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, include overuse of devices/screen time (67%), social media (66%), internet safety (62%), depression/suicide (57%), bullying (53%) and unhealthy diet.
