  • Talk with your child about feelings and fears, which helps reduce them.
  • Emphasize the positive aspects of going to school; being with friends, learning a favorite subject, recess
  • Arrange an informal meeting with your child’s teacher, away from the classroom.
  • Allow your child to have their own alarm clock. Our school can help your family purchase an alarm clock if necessary.

  • Be firm with your limits. Allowing a child to stay home will often increase their resistance to attending school.
  • Meet with the school social worker for extra guidance and support. (Aleksi Poirier,
