DS always "ill"

Feel so stressed and waiting for the school to call, I'll give it to 9.30. DS 13 said he is sick and not well enough for school but I know he is acting up, ( let him stay home yesterday as gave him benefit of the doubt but was fine) DP and I literally had to drag him to the car this morning I feel terrible but can't just give in, sure we will get fined soon. This has been a recurring theme, ( couple of month) I send him and school then calls asking me to pick him up, surprise surprise he is perfectly fine when we get home. I have spoken to him about whether there is a problem and spoken with school and there seems to be no issues. Just don't understand why he is doing this, should I refuse to pick him up when they call? It is a 45 min drive return and I am working full time. Sorry just need to rant but any ideas how to deal with this?

I hope it went ok Orchid, and the school had some helpful ideas. Do you think your son knows why he is feeling the way he is?

Just to address an earlier point: CBT doesn't have to be perfunctory. It's been enormously helpful for dd.
