So let's get real for a second.  Every school morning you wake up hoping "this is going to be a good day." Your morning is wrecked when your kid wakes up and doesn't want to go to school.  These are the mornings you fear.   Parents of school refusal kids know what I am talking about.  Your day depends on how your kid wakes up.  If your kid is good, you're good.  If your kid is bad, you're stuck.  What do you do?  Do you try forcing your kid in the car, take away his/her iPad "forever," go to work and leave him/her at home.....  School Refusal parents, you need help! 

Join us as we help you step back, determine the reasons for your child's school refusal behaviors, and help you start to develop a step-by-step parenting plan to encourage your child to stay in school all day, everyday. 


Parents of school age children between the ages of 5-17 who demonstrate any of the following school refusal behaviors:

1.) Negotiations (crying, meltdowns, etc) about school attendance in the morning before school
2.) Tardy or absenteeism prior to or during school
3.) Pattern of physical complaints (headaches, stomachaches, nausea, etc) prior to or during school which result in tardiness or absenteeism
4.) Refusal to attend school
