School Refusal

School Refusal
    I am naming it the same as the Blog page because this is one of the names this problem is called.
    I would also like to let you know now, I will be also adding a link to another blog I will be setting up soon. That blog will be about our Homeschooling addventures.
    I have read in Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/School_refusal
That this problem occures in 1 to 5% of kids mostly ages 5,6,10 & 11.  Cody is 10, but was 9 when it all started.  School refusal could be a signe of a bigger problem.  It could be a sign of anxiety disorder, seperation anxiety, or panic disorders.
SCHOOL REFUSAL is not the same as TRUANCY!!!!
 According to a blog from Paediatric Pearls http://www.paediatricpearls.co.uk/2011/01/school-refusal/  The most common symtoms are anorexia, nausea, abdominal pain, feeling faint etc. Cody would have the nausea and abdominal pain eather at bed time or befor the bus or sometimes both times, but then he would be fine after the bus left with out him.
