i think that's a good thing because then he knows there IS a way out. there is hope if things dont work out at school.
however i wanted to share with you one strategy that REALLY helped my dd.
i think if we had 4 days of school with wednesdays off she would have coped better.
so what i did was take 'happy days' off. it helped dd GREATLY emotionally.
the teacher knew. and that's when i realised K and first have loose policies on K and first attendance. we had to buck up in 3rd grade. 2nd grade she didnt want to miss a day of her teacher.
the thing is when i could tell my dd had had enough we took a day off. it really, really helped dd. we did mostly k and first. the school did not complain. we took anything from once or twice each month a day off. sometimes even more.
