difficult child is still refusing to go to school because of his FEAR of being sent home again. He insist I home school him which is not an option since I work to feed us and keep us in a home. I tried to show him what homeschooling would be like by working with him on the classwork he has missed over the last week. Trouble is, at the meer mention of "homework" the kid freaks out. He yells that it's too hard (which was never an issue when I've helped him before). I really think his fear of returning to school has almost become a phobia. I might be wrong but in his different way of thinking, I am wondering if he's freaking out over the work because he thinks that if he does it without an issue I will make him go back to school. I don't know what to do. He needs to get back to school but I'm not sure how to get him there without him freaking out just to be sent home to escape the anxiety. I welcome any advice from my Wise Warrior "family" members. PLEASE!?!?!?
