Ease Summer Camp Jitters with Books

 

Summer camp offers many fun experiences for children. However, if this is your child’s first visit away from home they may be feeling anxious. These feelings are normal.  In fact, everyone, even adults feel stress when dealing with things that are unfamiliar to them.

When children know what to expect from a situation they tend to be more confident and are willing to try new things.  One great way to help ease your child’s fears is to simply talk with them and books offer a great medium for starting a conversation.
