For many children, the start of the school year is an exciting opportunity to socialise or an inconvenient reality.
Every child loves to learn – they love to learn what inspires and is important to them. If your child cannot see how the classes they are taking in their school, or how the children at their school are helping them fulfil what is most important and meaningful to them, they will resist going to school and attending their classes.
Here is some advice for anyone parenting a struggling child:
Perfection is a fantasy
If you live in a fantasy world where everything is supposed to be happy, easy, peaceful, safe and agreeable, you are vulnerable to the major let down when your fantasy is broken by the reality of life. Help your child understand that life is always in balance and that every challenging situation serves a purpose in their development.
