School is starting next week and we, as parents are tense and nervous for our kids. Maybe they have that dreaded teacher, not in a class with any friends or this could be their first year. If it is your child’s first year or you are sending your last child to school, either way both mom and child will probably have some really big emotions. I know as I send my first child to Kindergarten that I feel like it is the first of large steps to come. Yes, I know it is only kindergarten, but it is the first change for our child going into the world and she has been saying to me, “I am a little scared.” What I don’t tell her is that I am a little nervous too. Here are some Homeopathic remedies for Back to school for both Parents and Kids. For Kids: Passiflora: For Restlessness and nervousness at school Pulsatilla: Sunny disposition but when separated from mom and dad they get tummy aches, cry and whine. For children with Separation anxiety with leaving mom and dad, works even stronger for first time separation. Lycopodium: Dyslexia switching letters can’t read the work they have written. Confusion when speaking, can’t follow a conversation Baryta Carb: Shy kid and will hide from strangers. Will help with emotional or physical delays not just shyness. Argentum Nitricum: What if Remedy, i.e. exam and performance anxiety. Lachesis – Too much energy looking for an outlet, something blocked or suppressed; children with the wiggles. Baryta Carb: For clingy child that hide behind mom or dad. For Parents: Passiflora: Treatment for the nervousness that comes from sending your kid to school the first time. Pulsatilla: Helpful for Parents who have trouble letting go of their little one or are sad about them going into the big world.

I am happy to report they worked very well and the First day of school was a great success as well as not to many tears from Mommy!
