Returning to the old routine after a long summer break can be difficult for both children and parents. Days start earlier, uniforms must be found, cleaned and worn every day, not to mention the school run leaving everyone spinning. And that’s before the day even begins.
Once in school, classes can often be challenging, with subjects becoming more difficult as the years progress. Pressure on teachers to get results can sometimes cause them to push students hard. And this in turn can leave children tired and grumpy, which can affect their concentration as well as their mood.
