8647[1]When the summer holiday season sadly comes to an end, the family trip can often seem like a lifetime ago.  It’s time to get back to reality and prepare for another school year to commence. The prospect of new teachers, new friends and maybe even a new school can be daunting for both children and parents alike.

Bach™ Original Flower Remedies and parenting expert Sarah Wheatley have put together some handy hints and tips to make going back to school a breeze for all the family!

“At any school gates on the first day of a new school year, you will see a massive range of emotions. Many mothers feel a mixture of things about their child starting school: relief, dread, guilt, nostalgia and pride, to name just a few. Some mothers feel the ache of separation, and others don’t. And for mothers whose last child is starting school, there may be a sadness that they will not be doing this again.

Children’s responses to starting school can be equally varied and can often be difficult to detect. Don’t let this mixed bag of emotions get in the way of new starts and harness the positive potential of Bach flower essences.

If your child is starting a new school this term, many schools now make sure that children are able to come into the school for visits and assemblies before they start so children can help see what school will be like themselves.”
