Dealing With Back To School Anxiety

Starting primary school, or going back to school in general can leave children feeling anxious.

Remember those knots in your stomach and the fear that you'd have no one to talk to or sit with at lunch?

Dr Mary O'Kane, Lecturer in Psychology and Education joined us earlier with her advice.

Mary returned later in the show to answer your questions and queries.
