  • You need to just tell your son that he's a big boy, big boys go to school, that you will take him to school and that you promise that you'll be there when he's done.
    I think that when parents sneak out on their kids, it makes the kids worry and think their parents are going to disappear or not return for them. Give him a hug and a kiss and walk away even if he's crying while watching you go. Sneaking away is rather mean if you think about it, you know he comes to the realization that your gone and didn't even say goodbye. How would you feel if your loved ones did that to you?

  • Well I know many people whp have this problem with Preschoolers. Since he is older you could try giving him something like your watch or necklase something that you can say is your and you will get it back whne you pick him up.

  • Have you spoken with him, and asked him to explain to you why he doesn't want to go to school?

  • Not saying your child is being bullied, but I've read that getting a child involved in something they can take pride in to help build their confidence helps with them tackling bigger issues at school. How is he in sports? What does he enjoy? Maybe emphasize that and build his confidence? Good Luck!
