My 6 yr. old girl does not want to go to school, she did this in kindergarten for a week and right when we were just doing great we had that stupid Hurrican Ike and she missed 8 days of school (for everyone) then we had to go through all the drama again....Anyway now one month in a half of school she gets to not feeling too good (you know the fever, tummy ache, pooping) once that was past. It was time to hit the books...only she does not want to go to school.
I asked the teacher if everything was ok she said yes and that she is a very good student (no complaints there) So what could it be?
It is getting so old with this drama she puts me through, her dad already spoke her and handled but it doesn't make a difference.
Has anyone ever gone through this with their kid?

Separation anxiety can be quite the drama scene. Good students, good kids, goo parents....and it can still happen. "Something" doesn't have to have happened for it to develop. So breathe. Then come up with a plan. 1) routine. Same routine from time she wakes up to the time she goes to bed. 2) kindness. If you were honestly scared and anxious you would want compassion not apathy. 3) Have someone who is the more firm person be the one to take her to school or put her on the bus. If it helps enlist a friend who is a little more detached from the scene. But it has to be the same exact person. 4) if at school she has a break down - dear God don't let her come home. No matter how bad the drama scene. I once had a kid who had a bone chilling scream and we kept him at school.
