Troubled Teens: THE FIX – What to do when a student refuses to go to school

Dr. Mayer examines the perennial issue of students refusing to go to school. He examines this difficult issue from all angles and from all ages as this problem happens from Kindergarten through college. Current estimates are that between 2-4% of all students exhibit school refusal. Mayer cites the parental blogs from a recent New York Times article on things NOT to do in response to your student refusing school attendance. As always, Dr. Mayer’s approach is to offer practical and doable solutions.
