Everyday my daughter refuses to go to school. She is 10 years old. If we do get her to school she goes to the nurse saying she does not feel good. We took her to the doctor she is fine. At night she starts saying again "I am not going to school tomorrow". I realize there is a problem and have an appointment with a behavioral doctor next week. Should I force her to go to school until then or let her stay home?Answer Question

Don't let her stay home, maybe someone made her fell bad or maybe the teacher did. Avoiding things is easy when your young. When my dd was young I told her a story about little girls in other countries who instead of going to school they had to go to work, pan handling, brick making, sex slaves and in some countries they are just not allowed past grade 3. She was so shocked I also explained that this country we live in gives everyone an equal opportunity to learn and do what they love but if you give up in elementary then your giving up your chance at freedom. Show your child pictures of how unlucky kids are everywhere else and find out why she is doing what she's doing. Good luck.
