my dd has been skipping class and i am not punishing her or telling my dh
This is the deal. My dd is in 8th grade. She just started in this school this year. She got her schedule and it shows her first class is PE. My dd has self esteem issues due to her being really skinny. Every since 5th grade she has been teased. To the point where she will not go without a long sleeve shirt and will not wear shorts. In 5th grade she was told by "friends" that she couldn't be in the talent show because she was so skinny. Last year she tried to wear 2 pair of jeans to make her legs look bigger because people were telling her her legs are to skinny and wears long sleeve shirts because they tell her arms are too skinny.. She was skipping because she didn't want to dress out, she didn't want to be seen without her clothes on. Her first period is her homeroom and where they did attendance. i was getting calls that she was absent.
Today she was found hiding in the bathroom. at this point she talk to the guidance and guidance was really concerned about how she won't wear anything but pants and always wear long sleeve shirts. My dd was really upset and they changed her from PE to choirs. I spoke to guidance about what has went on with my dd and hwat has been happening .
I am not punishing her because i know why she did it . I spoke her about it and explain to her that I am not condoning what she did but just this one time she will not be punished but if it happens again she will be.
I am not telling dh because he will want to punish her and he won't understand what she has been going through.
