Nov. 22, 2021, 1:38 p.m.

As Auckland children return to school post lockdown information about how to reassure any child feeling a bit anxious can now be found on the KidsHealth website. Dr Alison Leversha a community paediatrician for Starship, shares some of the work that they have been doing to provide support to the children returning to school and their whānau. Booklets specifically for children up to 8 years old and booklets for 9 years plus are now available to provide support. Dr. Alison Leversha says, “Parents will find the booklets useful for generating discussion with their children, especially if the child is feeling anxious about going back to school.” For more information  https://kidshealth.org.nz/supporting-children-returning-school-delta-2021
