Back to School time can be a very stressful time for parents as well as their children. If you are anything like me I know ahead of time that this stress will produce a migraine headache for me. I would like to share some results of a study by the makers of Excedrin about back to school time and headaches with you.

  • 69% of parents, who have at least one child in school this coming year, say they are excited for their child’s first day of school.  That doesn’t change the fact that 44% of parents also say they expect to get a headache during the back to school season.

  • More than one-third of parents* cite getting themselves (41%) and their children (43%) back on a schedule at the top of the list of things that might cause their headaches during the back to school season.

  • In addition, more than one-third (35%) of parents* say shopping for school supplies might give them a headache.  With all the pencils, folders and notebooks, parents should remember to put Excedrin® on their back to school shopping list.

  • A large majority of parents (85%) think their schools are in need of new or upgraded supplies such as pencils and paper and computers or software and gym/sporting equipment. And that’s because with every purchase of Excedrin®, parents can enter for a chance to win $10,000 for their child’s school.

* Parents that can name at least one thing that might cause a headache during the back to school season

As I said earlier, the stress for back to school cause me to have headaches. From being away from my kids to the run around to collect school supplies and new clothes it sometimes feels like too much! This year was much worse for me and I had many migraines. Back to school season started shortly after my husband’s cancer surgery and I was a mess. Everyday added something new and I need to have my Excedrin Migraine on hand at all times. I was happy to at least have that relief, but I still had to do all the shopping and registering the kids though. The first day of school arrived this past Monday and my new high schooler got off okay but I had real struggles with my six year old. Not from her of course, nope, it was all me. I was dreading her being gone all day, she is my mini me, my constant, and I was suffering from separation anxiety. Don’t get me wrong, I was looking forward to the quiet and getting my work done without an interruption every five minutes but I didn’t want to be away from her. So with tears in my eyes, I walked her to her school and watched my little girl walk into the building. I waited until I saw that she had help getting to her class and then walked to the car. By the time I got home I had one of those major headaches from holding back my tears and literally laid in bed, blinds drawn trying to get rid of my headache. I am a big baby ;) Enough about me!
