Top 10 SOLUTIONS FOR Helping  RETURNINGHigh School Students
Summer’s nearly over, and it’s time to prepare for the return of teachers, webcams and books.

Most students are looking forward to the new school year while still adjusting to life in this pandemic world. Yet, typical issues of teen life are still prevalent, whether learning from home or not.

“But having someone to listen to your troubles could mean the difference between life and death if the teen’s depression is untreated. Therefore, giving students access to resources makes a positive difference,” says Tamika M. Murray, author of “Crying, Learning, and Laughing: Why Students Visit the Teen Center,” a guide for helping teens in need.

Here are the Top 10 Resolutions for Helping High School Students Going Back to School:

1 Do some active listening.

Parents and caregivers can ease the fears of their adolescents. By active listening, you’re engaging and caring about what is said. Staying focused is especially essential now as your teen could worry about contracting COVID-19 upon return to class.

2 Provide linkage to resources.

Whether your son, daughter or client can call and schedule an appointment or not, offering suggestions and assistance for tutoring or finding a job will lessen the anxiety.

3 Seek counseling when needed.
