August 19, 2016
Starting the new school year after the summer vacation can bring with it a few hurdles for children – whether it’s getting back into their school routine or adjusting to having homework again – this time of year is often a mixture of nerves and excitement.
Our UK based parent company, Explore Learning, recently carried out some research into how parents and children feel about going ‘back to school’. Take a look at the top eight biggest obstacles that British children face.
How many do you think apply to you as a parent in Texas?
50% of parents said that getting up early was the biggest obstacle that children face when returning to school. This was followed by children’s concerns about having a new teacher at 43%, closely followed by getting back into their school routine.
Children seemed least worried about making new friends when they start school again after the summer with only 16% of parents saying this was an obstacle, but around a third said that coping with having to do homework again and adapting to a new level of learning were worrying for their children.
