WARREN, NJ - Dolphins, Eagles, Gators, Warriors, Wolverines,and Woodchucks all have returned to school.

And, don't stress. According to the American Psychological Association, parents face additional stressors. "Aside from paying the mortgage, working and everyday concerns, many parents may also be worried about their children starting a new school, changing school districts, facing a more rigorous academic year or dealing with difficult social situations. Often the fear of the unknown — classmates, teachers, the school building — whether it’s the children hopping on the school bus or their parents who have to wave goodbye."
