When your child first starts school, it's a big change in your family life, especially if it is your eldest or youngest child. You may feel sad and be worried that your child will be unhappy, will not make friends, or will not enjoy schoolwork. Remember that most children love school and go on to make the most of their education.
Family Lives (previously Parentline Plus) can help parents in a number of different ways:
- You can look at their guidance and advice on their website
- You can call and talk to them about anything that is worrying you
- You can download information from their website
- You can call and they will send you a copy of any of their leaflets free of charge.
