Many parents and children have questions about the return to school, as this year will be unlike any other due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Karen Wang, youth psychiatrist, discusses back-to-school anxiety in a recent Today’s Parent article, and the importance of communication between parents and their children during this time.

“Many times, young children are looking for simple reassurance that their caregiver will be there to protect them and guide them. For all kids, regardless of their age, we can remind them that we are here for them and that it’s valid to have conflicting emotions right now,” Dr. Wang explains to Today’s Parent.
