Children and teenagers have different reasons for skipping school. Getting to the bottom of these is key to helping them change their behaviour and feel more secure at school.
The most important thing is helping your child get back to school. Remember this can take time and patience.
It can also be worth talking about house rules. Boundaries let your child know what behaviour you expect. This helps them feel more secure and settled.
