Children not wanting to go to school

Bookmark and Share

My child makes excuses like stomach aches, tooth aches, running to bathroom, etc, before school so that he may avoid going to school. How should i handle this situation, please advice?

Talk to your child in a friendly manner instead of blasting out at him/her. Ask what is the problem and if there is any reason for not liking school for for their behavior. Many a times there are reasons like bullying, being away from parents, tough assignments or a teacher they may not like. Talk to his teacher or probably a school counselor would be able to help your child.
