MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY: Getting Motivated for Back to School


Reason kids are often unmotivated to go back to school: 

  • All the obvious reasons such as less free time, homework starting, lack of freedom 
  • Also, anxiety over the school year 

Reasons for anxiety 

  • New teacher and schedule 
  • New work load 
  • Not knowing other students in their class 

What parents can do 

  • Don’t assume kids have the same information you do 
  • Talk to them about what they year will look like 
  • Ask them what they need 
  • Remind them of past years, and how they adjusted
