School is exciting for most children and teens. However, for some making friends, facing bullies, feeling “uncool” or coping with academic pressures can fuel anxiety, even dread. This anxiety may be experienced through such symptoms as headaches, stomachaches, sleep difficulties, and even school refusal.
School Refusal is characterized by any of the following:
1.) Negotiations about school attendance in the morning between parent and child
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
This class will provide parents of school refusal children a chance to step back and determine what their role and plan is when their child refuses to go to school.
Parents whose children either negotiate, have physical complaints prior to or during school, or refuse to go to school.
