Agh....I feel so stressed! My son was 'sick' and absent from school on Thursday and Friday....luckily for him he had tonsilitis....gave him good excuse not to go! Me and hubby has appointment with psychiatrist tomorrow morning at 8 'o clock, so ghg has to go to school early! I told him very gently now that he has to go a bit earlier tomorrow morning...his answer: But you know I'm not going to school tomorrow. I asked him why...."because".... Has any of you encountered this problem...how do you get your kid to go to school if he refuses...We have done the punishment before....taking away his ps3....We had told him about how bad it will be if he fails grade 2....he said so what......he is such a clever little boy...he has everything going for him....great private school, nice teacher....the brains....He just find the social interaction very stressfull. Any ideas on how to get my child to want to go to school tomorrow!? Help pleeeeaaassseeee!
