SKIPPING CLASS AND WHAT YOU CAN DO

SKIPPING CLASS AND WHAT YOU CAN DO

Skipping class can present itself in variety of different ways. It might look like your child is going to school, leaving and coming home at the usual time, but miss certain classes or even the whole day.

Skipping school can happen for a multitude of different reasons, and don’t always mean that your teen is trying to rebel against you. Many teens avoid attending school due to bullying, problems with friends, peer pressure or worries about schoolwork.

You can work this out by talking to your teen about what’s bothering them and the importance of attending school, and working together to address the problem. You can also speak with the school, in particular year coordinators and guidance counsellors.
