We all know that Back to School season usually means a mad rush to the store with your child’s school supply list clutched in hand and a possible fight over who gets the Pikachu backpack. What we may not be aware of is the stress or anxiety our children may be feeling as they head back to school. Avera Health Family Life Educator, Tricia Bates, stopped by to join us today to help us look for those sometimes hidden signs. She’s also going to share some tips for parents to help ease the stress for you and your kids.
