Erik Fisher, Psychology, answeredChange is a very difficult process and moving from one school to the next can feel scary and overwhelming to many children. It can also feel overwhelming to parents for a few reasons. As our children move from school to school, we can't help but recognize that our child is growing up, and some of us have a hard time letting go. Another reason is that sometimes we want to protect our child from experiencing pain. It is in some of these circumstances that parents can contribute to some of their children's stress in the change process. As a parent, if you are feeling distressed about changes that your child experiences, be careful not to communicate that to them. In my experience, when the parent's emotional well-being improves, the child's behavior often follows suit.
