Description - Getting Your Child to Say Yes to School by Christopher Kearney

Many parents find getting their child to school in the morning to be quite a challenge. If your child consistently pleads with you to let him stay at home from school, if he skips school, if his morning routine is fraught with misbehaviour, or if he exhibits signs of distress and anxiety related to attending school, this book can help. Getting Your Child to Say Yes to School is designed to help you address your child's school refusal behaviour in the early stages. This guide helps you to identify school refusal behaviour and provides step-by-step instructions to solve the problem. Learn different techniques for getting your child to school, including enhancing relaxation, changing your child's negative thoughts about school, establishing a clear and predictable morning routine, and setting up a system of rewards for going to school. Tools such as worksheets, lists of "dos" and "don'ts", sample parent/child dialogues, and "Fridge Notes" combine to create a workbook-type resource that will help you increase your child's school attendance and relieve your own feelings of concern and worry. Easy to read and filled with concrete strategies, this book is the first of its kind dedicated to educating and arming parents with the tools they need to resolve their child's school refusal behaviour.
