“I can hardly wait to go back!” “I hate school; I wish summer never ended.” Which is your child? If your children don’t want to go to school, you need to explore why. Maybe they don’t like school because it’s hard, they don’t have any friends, their teacher picks on them, or they feel stupid. Can you blame them? Most self-respecting adults wouldn’t jeopardize their egos the same way we expect our children to. The difference is we have a choice–children don’t–they have to go to school.
