Why is my child having school problems?
At some point, all children struggle with the transitions, expectations, stress, and physical/mental demands that school and other educational experiences can have. Having problems at school, however, is usually a symptom rather than the core issue. There are many ways in which your child can have school issues, including: absenteeism, aggression, learning disabilities, social and relational issues, etc. Many times, difficulty at school is the push some people need to seek professional help for themselves or their child. Beneath the difficulties at school may be a multitude of different things, such as: peer/teacher conflict, disorganization, anxiety, depression, ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Conduct Disorder, etc.
