My daughter is 9-years-old and gives me a hard time going to school every morning. Anyone else have the same problem?

That’s tough! So far my kids love going to school, but they’re younger. Sorry no advice, just positive thoughts. Anyone else???

I know how you feel.  My first grader has major separation anxiety.  It’s not easy and you’re not alone ;)

I think you should talk with your daughter and try to find out the reason behind her denial. Take her each issue deeply and try to resolve them one by one. Try to make a link between her studies and future aspects of life. Do also praise your child for their efforts and accomplishments as they love to receive praise from their parents.

There can be something deeper to it than appears at face value. Is there something bothering her? Is she being bullied or teased? Did she always have this dislike for school? What age did she start school? Meet her teacher, if you haven’t already. Have you tried talking to your child?
