My 14 year old daughter refuses to go to school she has had so many days off this term ive tried everything like talking to the school dean etc im really worried any advice would be great as raising a teen isnt easy
Think you all told me what I already knew!(but was trying to kid myself) Gotta let her get on with it & deal with the fall out....she got excluded 4 one day for lots of lil things over time so just don't want any more things 2 go wrong! Even gave up work to try & get her sorted!! V diff as she really isn't 'bad' just doesn't know when to shut up!
I would also stop pandering to her. Tell her the night before that you check she is awake, but after that it is her responsibility to get up and ready for school. Warn her that you will not be making any excuses for her when the school phone to find out where she is.
Do you have a good reliable school that can be trusted to punish her rather than give you a hard time?
I was always very reluctant to let dd take the consequences of her actions in junior school as I knew the school would twist it round to be about my bad parenting- probably less risk of that in secondary.
