School avoidance is a sharply increasing phenomenon, with tangible negative effects on children’s wellbeing and education.

A careful, mindful approach from parents, carers and educators is required to help children return to an environment that may be causing them intense anxiety. 

This week’s guide helps to define potential roots and ramifications and what you can do to help your child navigate these obstacles and continue their education.
