OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU) - Dr. Oz stopped by our KTVU studio to talk Back to School anxiety.
He says parents should communicate with kids to see how they're feeling about heading back to school.
If they are starting a new school it's ideal to find a buddy for your child. Just one friendly face can make a huge difference so it's important to set up a play date.
Dr. Oz adds you'll likely add to your child's anxiety by showing your own anxiety.
He says you should try to be casual about heading back to school and not make a big deal about it.
