My daughter never wants to go to
school. It is only a few weeks into the year and already she
had been sick two or three times. I don't know if it is a
problem at school or if she's really ill.
All of us have days when it's difficult to concentrate or we don't feel well. If your child doesn't have a specific illness and there is a pattern, your child may have problem she's trying to avoid. Sometimes children have trouble adjusting to the schedule, don't like their new teacher, or are bored.
