Chalk Talk: Too Many Sick Days?
Kids get sick once and a while, but what if they are missing too many days due to illness or going to the nurse's office often? If a child doesn't have symptoms such as fever, vomiting, or other symptoms of a serious illness, he/she may be pretending to be sick to get out of going to school. Watching how children behaved the weekend prior to or after they complained of being sick can give parents an idea as to whether or not they actually are; for example, if they were "sick" on Thursday but then very active on Saturday, perhaps they weren't truly ill. Besides children just not wanting to go to school because they don't enjoy it or think it's boring, their fake sicknesses may be a cry for help. If a child constantly shows a reluctance to attend school, he/she may be facing bullying. It is especially concerning if a child who loves school all of a sudden demonstrates this behavior. Therefore, it is important to get to the bottom of why students don't want to go to school and not just assume that they are lazy and want to play video games all day.
