This mother would desperately like your help in getting her son to school……
My son really dislikes school. He was ok for all of key stage 1, but since he’s been in key stage 2 he has really struggled. I mean really struggled. He doesn’t struggle with the work, although he often refuses to do it, he struggles with the relationships with the staff. He finds it hard to comply and is very sensitive to what he perceives as cross voices.I am working with school to help support him and he is currently being assessed to be statemented. He has also been diagnosed as ASD.
His dislike of school has brought about many a difficult morning trying to motivate him to go to school.
I know that some may think that I should consider home schooling him, believe me, I’ve thought about it. However, he is very against the idea and I too don’t believe this is not the answer. He can be very sociable and loves seeing his friends. Also I worry that I wouldn’t be able to access his full potential, he is extremely bright.
He is now in year 6 and I know it’s going to be tough getting him to go to school. Do any of you have experience of your child really not wanting to go to school? What techniques, rewards, bribes have you used to ease the situation? Having had a bad start to the year I really would love to hear how others manage..
