What To Say When Your Child Doesn’t Want To Go To School – Cupertino SAT Prep

Cupertino SAT PrepEvery child has days when they don’t want to go to school. Parents need to help their kids see the value

of school and occasionally make them go even when they don’t want to. However, a consistent complaint

about going to school may indicate deeper problems. How you handle the situation as a parent can

improve your child’s experience of school in.

Encourage Discussion

When your child is consistently complaining about school, keep an open mind and use responses that

promote discussion rather than shut out a child’s feelings. Understood suggests responses such as

“School must be very challenging right now, what is the most difficult.” This will give your child the

opportunity to tell you what is bothering them. It could be a range of problems from feeling behind in class

to being bullied by other kids.

Find a Solution

Once you discover the root of the problem, work with your child to find a solution. If your child’s complaint

is about being too tired, maybe you need to cut out some after school activities so they can have a break.

When your child is concerned about social relationships, discuss how they can respond to different

situations. If your child feels like they don’t understand the course material, talk about hiring a tutor or

helping your child with their homework. Work out organizational plans so that your child doesn’t fall

behind on their homework.

Talk with Teachers

When you or your child can’t seem to find a solution, talk with your child’s teacher. They can help you

understand what is going on in the classroom. You can also work with your child’s teacher to develop

solutions that will help your child feel more comfortable at school. Talking with teachers will also help you

uncover even deeper problems your child is facing, such as an attention or learning issue or social issue.

The sooner you can find the appropriate help, the sooner your child will learn to excel in school.

Offer Respect

Don’t ignore your child’s desires to avoid school. Don’t use statements that judge or condemn them for

their feelings. Instead, have a a conversation about what is bothering your child and work to find

appropriate solutions. When your child feels respected, they will open up about the challenges they are

facing and you can provide the support they need.
