Fourth Post - Links
Contrary to the ads on television showing parents doing the happy dance as September gets closer, many parents, teens, children and TEACHERS, are experiencing some fairly typical, back to school anxiety. This anxious state often goes hand in hand with the anticipation and expectation of a new year. I'm not sure who's more excited or nervous; parents, teens, children or teachers. Rather than listing strategies to "cope" with the emotions of the next several weeks, I've decided to add a "links" gadget and list some useful resources surrounding anxiety and its partner depression. The link "Peace of Mind" includes a brief depression screening as well as an anxiety screening that you may find helpful. Several sites are applicable to adults and parents as well as teens and children. For a bit of balance I've included a link to an ADD/ADHD website. If you decide to view a link or two, please send me some feedback.
