Back to school is not always easy
Thousands of Scottish pupils are preparing to start primary and high school for the first time as the new school year gets underway.
While some youngsters take this big change in their stride, others can find it a difficult time – along with their parents.
The transition from nursery to primary and from primary onto secondary school can be difficult, moving to a bigger school, leaving friends behind and being surrounded by older children. It can be a scary time and some children cope better with change than others.
ParentLine Scotland, the national, confidential helpline and email service provided by CHILDREN 1st, wants to remind parents and carers they are on hand.
