When a child consistently goes to school, he makes us all proud. The teachers feel happy and, as parents, that certainly makes us happy.

However, sometimes we notice that not all of our child’s behaviors align with our expectations. We often encounter situations where the child is at school but refuses to enter. Why did this happened? Perhaps the child is embarrassed, scared, or something else is making him or her refuse to go to school.

The above problem needs a solution so that we as parents can address our child’s school refusal. Here are some tips to help with a child who refuses to go to school.

Second, identify the cause. Every problem a child faces has a reason. This reason may come from the child himself or from external factors. If it’s the child’s, give him the opportunity to express his feelings. On the contrary, if it is external, find out by asking your friends, teachers or other family members.

Third, involve the teacher in the task of picking up the child from school. Teachers are like second parents at school. Its role is crucial in the psychological development of a child. For the child, teachers are seen as capable of giving answers to her problems. By involving the teacher, an emotional closeness is established between the teacher and the child.

Fourth, involve your friends to help you look for them. Not all friends can be close friends. Here we are looking for friends who understand the child’s situation well. In other words, close friends. Close friends are considered capable of understanding the child’s problems. Therefore, by involving his close friends, it is hoped that they can help restore the child’s confidence, encouraging him to boldly attend school.
