Today marks a big milestone in getting back to normal life in the UK, schools re-open and thousands of students return to school, their learning and friends.
And this is something that is causing mixed reactions, in both children and parents. For children, you may find some of them looking forward to it, to see their friends and get a bit of normality back in their lives, for some others, this comes as a shock and they do not want to go back, as a result, fears, anger, anxiety.... are showing up.
Parents are not too different, some will be celebrating theirs kids being back and looking forward to getting some time back and not juggle too many balls, some will be missing this unique time spent with their kids, some will do both.
Whichever way of the spectrum you or your child/ren are in, today is a day that will trigger some feelings, and we have brought back Juliette Oakshett, dramatherapist, systemic practitioner, school counsellor and parent coach who specialises in work with children and families, to help us navigate this new change.
