I Don't Want To Go To School #Children #Bully


Many times, children want to skip school n make vague excuses to miss the school. Even in our childhood, we too try to invent or discover reasons to put forth parents and guardians to miss school. It is not a new thing. Recall the Champak n Nandan days...their stories too had stories of kids trying to evade from attending school and made flimsy excuses of health...and they spilled the beans when Doctor tried to give them an injection...Oh wonderful days of childhood.

Man Lo, you have guests around that too the grandmothers or Aunts of kids then they may try to find excuse to take a holiday from regular schedule of classes...because these ladies really pamper the kids and they don't wish to miss the opportunity of fun n gifts….but if it becomes recurrent and turns into something serious…Then, Be Alert…find out the reason behind.

When the child is literally not ready to attend the school…When the grades are lowering or there is eminent change in his/ her behavior pattern…then…It’s a Warning for the parent.

Take the child into confidence and try to retrieve information about his school, teachers and friends…figure out the reason or meet their friends, teachers’ n neighbors and take note of his behavior with them.

Recently, my friend Mira visited my place and told me that her son Pratik was getting violent since few weeks, was not concentrating on studies and was adamant not to attend the school. Her husband suggested to see a psychologist for his changed behavior…he had become very unruly and his parents were out of their wits.

In the beginning, he wasn’t supportive with the counselor but gradually he took his reins in his hand and it was concluded that the reason was bullying at school by the school friends and though he complained to his teacher, she did not pay much heed. The reason for not paying attention was that he was a mediocre student and the teacher at large paid attention to high scoring children and this discrimination changed his behavior n he wanted to escape from attending the school on some pretext or the other and even he did not keep well.

I was quite surprised to know because I never thought that such things can take place at schools, which we look as a temple of education and uniformity. I felt pity for Mira who had to face such extreme days but we both were thankful to God that Pratik was counselled on time and he did not lose his way. Today, he is absolutely normal and very punctual in his academics and his scores are better than before. Mira and her husband identified and helped Pratik on time.

But how many of us really delve deep when the child shudders away from school…rather he is scolded and demoralized and sent to school and we never think beyond him.
Be attentive to your child unruly reprimands, delve deep and find out the reason fast else you might lose your child.

We often read or hear in news that the child committed suicide after been bullied by the teachers or friends…this step is not taken in a day.

These incidents take place because parents fail in their duty to understand their child resentment and ignore child requests.

Be careful in handling your children. Be friendly and open with your child so that he or she shares his fears without any fear…Still if they do not disclose…meet school teachers and discuss the reason and if still not sorted out, consult a child psychologist and get the issues diagnosed immediately.

Give ears to your kids if they are reluctant…there might be a valid reason to it.
