Parents top worries as children start secondary school

According to research, 66% of parents were worried about their child starting secondary school.

Worries included them walking to school alone, not always knowing their whereabouts or what they are up to and their child taking the bus alone.

The study by Life360, which revealed the 30 main anxieties mums and dads share at this important transition point, also showed over half (53%) were more anxious about their child being less safe than they were at primary school.

Aston spoke to parenting author and coach Sue Atkins.
