Pressures for Children when Starting a New Grade by a Fort Lauderdale Psychologist
Starting a new grade is a complex process in which children’s different habits, routines, acquired self-discipline, motivation, and the general “know-how” of handling school situations are radically challenged. This new grade and new school year may mean, new teachers, new pupils, new physical environment and new set of subjects and tasks, which are progressively harder. Pressures for children starting a new grade are based on transition from an old environment whereby the child’s coping skills become less relevant or applicable to the new environment. South Florida Psychological Group, located in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and also covering Weston, FL and Boca Raton, FL, and its experts are knowledgeable about the various manifestation of pressures for children when starting a new grade.
To many children this sudden change may precipitate onset of anxiety, phobias and cause awkward behavior in some social situations, as well as induce stress and fatigue as peer-competiveness increases. South Florida Psychological Group active in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and covering Weston, FL and Boca Raton, FL, practices a psychological approach that addresses these environment-acquired states that may interfere with the need to excel and may even affect children with above average intelligence and age-appropriate behavior as well.
