This upcoming fall my daughter is going to be starting 6th grade in junior high and she is scared to death. She's afraid of the idea of using a locker, having so many teachers, being at the bottom of the "barrel", doing PE in the cold fog, she scared of going to the orientation prior to school starting, she's upset that her older brother is going to have a bigger "status" than her. She says she doesn't want to go and I tell her that she has to because it's the law. She is also scared that something that happened in Newtown, CT will happen at her school and she also saw on the news that armed guards positioned at some schools now and that scares her too. She is going to a psychologist and we are going to bring this situation up next time she goes in and hopefully she can get some comfort.
Are any of your kids going into junior high scared too?
