NEW YORK — With COVID-19 rates starting to tick back up this summer, parents are more anxious than usual about back-to-school season. In fact, American moms and dads believe the morning hustle of getting their kids ready for school will be their biggest pain points of the next school year.
A survey of 2,000 parents of school-aged children also reveals more than half (51%) don’t feel prepared for the upcoming school year.
Back to school — but not via bus
Nearly seven in 10 parents are overwhelmed by the constant routine changes of the past year. One in three say they’ve just started getting the hang of their current pandemic routine. More than that, 27 percent admit they’ve forgotten what their kids’ normal school morning routine feels like.
