What does a parent do about children who don't want to go to school, who suffer from fear, anger, and anxiety that make them avoid the classroom? This book shows how to find solutions and help children move toward a more confident, less anxious future.
The sick child who, when better, won't return to school.
The sensitive child afraid of bullies.
The middle-schooler who never does homework.
The chronically truant teenager.
What do all these kids have in common? The desire to avoid school by whatever means possible - vague illness, deception, pleading.
This growing problem affects tens of thousands of students each year. Yet until now there was no help for parents and educators. Former teacher and administrator Elaine McEwan offers readable, timely, and practical solutions to help parents and teachers intervene before school stress becomes school failure.
Elaine K. McEwan, Ed.D., is the author of dozens of books, including Attention Deficit Disorder, The ABDs of School Success, and Managing Attention and Learning Disorders: A Guide for Adults.
