For many Quebec children, lockdown is coming to an end and the school bell has rung. How can we make this important transition as smooth as possible?
As the prospect of going back to school is on the horizon, many parents have questions and concerns about the possible repercussions on their child. Given the continued risk of the spread of the virus, is it safe to return to school? This is a very legitimate question.
To date, studies indicate that COVID-19 affects children a lot less, and when they are infected, they are generally less ill (the majority have only mild symptoms). Additionally, the risk of transmission by a child to other children or to adults is lower. Fortunately, child mortality rates are minimal based on data collected in Canada and around the world.
In Quebec, the return to school will be done in stages, gradually and cautiously. This is a priority for both the authorities and for society as a whole. The decision to return to school remains a personal family choice based on various criteria such as the health of family members (chronic illness, serious immune deficiency, pregnancy or a person over the age of 60), the capacity for at-home learning, a child’s learning disabilities, and parents’ return to work.
It’s normal for children and parents to experience a certain degree of stress, as is the case when returning to school at the beginning of a school year. Although it will be a return to a familiar environment, it will be necessary to adapt to certain changes and new measures (often restrictive ones, to be honest).

The stress experienced in a situation as unique as the coronavirus pandemic largely depends on individual perceptions and particularities. If you want your child to cope well with the stress of returning to school, first it is essential that you manage it well!
