This is the fourth day she has missed this year. She has only been back to school for several weeks. When I attempt to wake her up, she refuses to get out of bed. Then she complains of stomach aches. Tells me she feels nauseous and can't eat and she feels like she's going to throw up. I attempt to talk her into going, because she always feels better within a few hours, but she is refusing to get up. She is no longer a toddler. I can't pick her up and force her in the car. She is taller than me and outweighes me by 30 pounds. I really didn't want to see her miss another day this morning but I could no longer continue to argue with her. I was going to be late for work. So I left. I don't know what her deal is. She did this a few times last year but never this bad. She promised me this morning that it would be her last day missing school, but I don't believe her. I don't know if this new school is causing her to have anxiety. When I ask her if she is having any issues of school or if something is bothering her she says no. Usually she's quite open with me, but I don't know if there's something else going on that she just can't bring herself to tell me. This morning my mom emailed me and told me she spoke to one of her teachers. The teacher told my mom that my daughter was falling behind from missing so many days. My mom layed into me about it, telling me I should have forced her to go. What can I do when she literally refuses getting out of bed? The worst part is, I work in a high school attendance office for a living. I deal with these issues all the time. When it comes to my own kid, I am helpless. How do I make a kid go to school that flat out refuses?
