With schools due to return soon, some children may be dealing with feelings of anxiety and fear as they go back to school for the first time since the Covid-19 lockdown.

  • How to talk to your child about how they are feeling
  • How to notice signs of anxiety
  • What to say and what not to say
  • Solutions to anxiety
