BROOKLYN - Doctors are reminding parents that their children may have back-to-school jitters.

Nerves, stress and anxiety vary based on the child and what grade he or she is going into. Whether it's about making new friends, getting good grades or being in a different building, a social worker with Montefiore's school health program says it is important to communicate with your child about their worries.

Parents should also stay positive and let their kids know that despite the fear of starting something new, there is a lot to look forward to in the coming year.

Experts recommend that students who will have a lot of activities after school make lists to keep themselves organized and reduce stress.
