These interventions might be helpful as you try to ease your child into a school environment:

  • Return your child to school. Make sure school officials understand the situation and do not send your child home for the wrong reasons.
  • Consider family counseling if other problems exist.
  • Allow your child to speak about her concerns and fears.
  • Talk to a Children's psychiatrist or psychologist.
