Many students even feel anxious and begin to fret at the thought of joining back school. This is particularly true for those who are heading to a new school. Amid this nervousness and fear you can bring some respite by talking to your kids and taking them out for back to school shopping.

Among the various school supplies pencil pouches are particularly garnering attention. Different kinds of beautiful and innovative pencil pouches are being made available in the market by different brands.
You can pick a cute pencil pouch in a colour and design of your child’s choice, fill it up with all kinds of stationery items such as colourful erasers, sharp, pointed pencils, sharpeners, pens, scales and more. This can be a perfect back to school gift for your child.
Guide Your Children
In addition to taking your kids out for back to school shopping or surprising them with cool stationary supplies a day before the re-opening of school, it is also essential that you talk to them and calm them down if they are feeling anxious. Psychologists state that though quite common, anxiety must not be dismissed as a normal behavior especially when it comes to kids. It is recommended to address the issue immediately.
You may share your childhood experience to let your children know how you felt the same each time the school reopened after vacations but these feeling were just an outcome of over thinking and that joining back had always been fun for you and that it would be no different for them. This is a good way to assure them that there is no need to worry. Additionally, you may bring them back to routine few days before the school starts. This way they would not fret about waking up early as the school reopens. You must also ensure they have adequate sleep and are well rested so as to join back school with complete energy and enthusiasm.
So, if your children are having sleepless nights over going back to school and their condition has been stressing you out, now you know how to overcome it. Just listen to them attentively, let them share their worries and concerns with you, give them some piece of advice on why they should not worry so much and finally take them for back to school shopping.
