The first day of school is a daunting experience - for both kids and parents!
One mother has come up with a creative way to help calm her daughter's back-to-school jitters.
The clever mum, Natalie Stephens, came up with a 'school jumper hack' - by sewing two small kisses in red stitching to the sleeve of her daughter's jumper.
Sharing the photo to Facebook, the mother was praised by other parents for her simple, but effective, trick to help her daughter.
"Thought I would share a little tip," she captioned the post on the group 'Family Lockdown Tips and Ideas'.

"Our youngest has always had a hard time saying goodbye at the preschool/school gates," the woman wrote. "She's very clingy in general."
"With the restrictions going back to school on toys and her comfort scarf (mine doused in one of her favourite perfume bottles of mine) I had to think quick."
"I chose to sew on two little kisses that get fully charged with more before drop off, so that whenever she feels worried/sad that she is missing me she can look at/feel/kiss her sleeve and feel happy again," she explained.
"It may last only temporarily, but for now it seems to be working, smiles all round on day one!"
The post has over 29,000 likes, with thousands of parents gushing over the gesture.
"I love this," declared one . "I'm going to do that this weekend. My daughter would love it."
"Just did this with my girls tonight," another mum commented. "Could not believe the significance of it for them."
"Thank you so much for sharing this," said another. "I may need to borrow your idea. Thank you."
