My 13 year old son just started 8th grade a few days ago. Wow, I cannot believe how quickly the summer flew by! Like many parents, I am always excited about the start of a new school year. But at the same time, this comes along with plenty of stress. There's back to school shopping, doctor's visits, mountains of paperwork, and adjusting to a brand new schedule. I personally get stress-induced migraines, so that's the one part of back to school that I don't enjoy. My migraines will have me totally incapacitated, curled up in a fetal position in the dark, often in tears from the pain.
Apparently, I am not alone! A recent study conducted by Novartis, the makers of Excedrin, shows some interesting facts regarding migraines during back to school season:
-69% of parents of school aged children are excited about back to school season. However, a whopping 44% of parents expect to get headaches during this time.
-One of the biggest migraine triggers is the stress of getting parents and kids back on a school-year schedule.
-35% of parents think that shopping for school supplies might give them a headache. (Can't say I blame them! Wading through the hoards of shoppers in the stores can be very stressful!) So along with paper, pens, and crayons, parents should add some Excedrin to their shopping list!
-85% of parents believe their child's school is in need of supplies and upgraded technology. Luckily, with every Excedrin purchase, parents can enter to win $10,000 for their child's school!
