New Environments Can Be Unsettling for Kids

Starting at a new school can be a nerve wracking time for any child. Whether its a new middle school, high school, or college the fear of a new environment can be unsettling. I recently read a post from Empowering Parents by a mother named Emmie. Emmie has a son who has an anxiety disorder and Type I diabetes. Her son recently started going to a high school for the first time. The new environment did not help his situation out at all. Emmie posted about how she has handled her son’s issue, and how they are finding a way to make the high school schedule work for him.
