Beating the Back-to-School Blues

Beating the Back-to-School Blues
Heading back to school can be fun and exciting ... but there may also be some fears, and even tears for the younger ones. Help your child navigate the new school year with greater confidence by looking to the stars for support!

Aries
Though Aries loves a fresh start, going back to school means the end of summer's freedom. You can help your youngster make the transition by allowing plenty of opportunities for self-expression when they're not in school.

Taurus
Taurus doesn't like change, so they may dig in their heels at the start of the school year as they refuse to try new things. Encourage them by setting up easy-to-follow routines, while also surrounding them with plenty of familiar people and situations during the first few weeks of school.

Gemini
Gemini will be thrilled about returning to school because they'll get to meet new people and explore interesting subjects. Fuel their excitement by providing books and other learning materials outside of their school curriculum to inspire their infinitely curious mind!

Cancer
Cancer would probably rather stay home than venture out into the unknown world of a new grade, teacher and classmates. Make your little one feel safer by preparing plenty of healthy comfort food to take to school -- and come home to!

Leo

A new school year is just another opportunity for your young Leo to be a star ... but they may have a little performance anxiety at first. Strengthen their ego by emphasizing their intelligence and talents.

Virgo has a tendency to worry, so help your child adapt to the new school year by teaching them calming techniques such as deep breathing and creative visualization. Also, give them little jobs to do to help prepare for school -- and praise them for their efforts!

Libra
Libra always wants to please, so they'll probably try to hide their anxiety to save you from worrying about them. Ask them questions about how they're feeling, and remind them of all the friends they'll get to see again every day this school year. Perhaps even host a back-to-school party to ease their nerves!

Scorpio
Scorpio may keep their feelings to themselves about going back to school, but you can help them express their concerns through creative outlets. Provide them with an artistic workspace where they can let their feelings out any way they please.

Sagittarius
This Fire sign loves to learn, so take time to initiate conversations about their new curriculum. Also be sure to provide them with as many learning materials as they want to stoke their enthusiasm for their new academic adventures!

Capricorn
Capricorn may over-organize themselves in preparation for the new school year, so help them take a breather by doing something fun after the first day of school. A special treat and some one-on-one time will help this serious sign lighten up a bit.

Aquarius
Aquarius will be excited to dive into the social realm of school. At the same time, they may have difficulty adjusting to the rules of their new teachers, so once you find out what the year's guidelines are, have an open-ended conversation to allow your child a sense of empowerment.

Pisces
Dreamy Pisces may struggle with re-entering a world of deadlines and structure, but you can help them adapt by allowing them plenty of free time after school to do what they want. A trip to a watery place can also help soothe any frayed nerves that may stem from the sometimes-overstimulating environment of school.
