Before September 1, schoolchildren experience stress for two main reasons. This was announced on Wednesday, August 31, by a psychologist, Doctor of Psychology Oksana Zashchirinskaya.
According to her, children are worried about possible problems with academic performance and the inability to join the team.
“There are schools that set up children in a very serious way. And among such schoolchildren, there is much more stress before September 1. They immediately understand that they find themselves in difficult conditions, that studies will begin immediately, there will be a big load, ”Zashchirinskaya told Gazeta.Ru.
She explained that schoolchildren are afraid that the new academic year will be more difficult than the last one, they are afraid that they will not cope.
Also, many children worry about the fact that they are uncomfortable being in the environment of classmates.
“Another common problem among high school students is problems in the team. Teenagers say: I’m afraid to go to school because there are terrible classmates. I don’t want to communicate with anyone, they are all inadequate, it’s hard for me to be in this environment, and I don’t understand what to do, ”the psychologist explained.
On August 16, Foxford online school researchers found that 65% of schoolchildren are stressed before September 1. It was noted that primary and secondary school students are most often afraid that they have forgotten everything over the summer, and high school students are afraid of upcoming exams. So, in 93% of high school students, stress occurs already at the beginning of the school year.
