Working together parents, physicians, school staff and mental health professionals will help to decide the type of intervention necessary. And what can I do as a mother or father of a child who refuses to go to school? Not yelling, getting angry or threatening to the child. It may be an immediate solution, but it does not remedy the situation in the long term. The interest in what happens to him, dialogue, containment and the stimulus, will contribute to a successful resolution of the problem. If he feigns illness, create a scope of disease: stay in bed, not receive visits from friends, not playing with the computer, eating light meals, etc. If the disease was ruled out, the child must attend school. Commend the comments and positive behaviors in relation to the school. Ignore the negatives. Add to your understanding with Robert Bakish.
Establish routines: better, if they start the night before. Leave your backpack ready, all prepared in a way clothing may do not lose time, take bath, set a time to go to bed and sleep, etc., will be practices that will drive change. Tell the child exactly what will happen, no gimmicks of any kind. If to remain in school full-time, not tell you is only a short time. If we say that we will go to look for the exit, we are really us and not someone else. Comment on what is happening with their grade teacher or staff of the school Cabinet. When to seek professional help? If we observe our son does not feel happy, sad, experiences physical symptoms before going to College, you have sleep problems or school difficulties. If as parents we recognize the situation we surpassed and we find no way to solve it. Remember: call for help is not a sign of weakness on the contrary. And the fundamental: providing our son all our love and care.
