Healthy Children Radio: School Avoidance

​Does your child hate school? Do they try to get out of going to school with excuses ranging from faking sick to playing hooky? Are they constantly fighting with you about doing homework - or rather, not doing it? What might be the reason they are so unhappy?

In this segment of the Healthy Children show on RadioMD, pediatrician Corinn Cross, MD, FAAP, offers guidance to help parents find the reasons a child may not like school, as well as ways to get kids to turn that negative attitude around.
