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.
Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
