Back to school makes mothers anxious

BACK TO SCHOOL: Children feel happy.

THIS week marks the return to school for most children in Spain, but rather than youngsters being stressed at the thought of returning to the classroom, it seems that it’s the mothers who feel most anxious.

A psychologist said that mothers feel increased anxiety when term starts as well as worrying about the welfare of their child.

In contrast, a UK study showed that 56 per cent of children aged between six and 16, described themselves as ‘happy’ or ‘excited’ to be going back to school with seeing friends after the long summer break the biggest reason behind this.

A third admitted that the new school term did not even feature on their radar until the week before they were due to go back.
