My now 13-year-old has exhibited school refusal since kindergarten. Not just protest, but full-on-won’t-leave-his-bed-refusal. No punishment or withdrawal of privileges has ever helped. I wish we could homeschool, but his father (my ex) won’t agree to it, and, frankly, I’m not equipped for it. I have tried and continue to try all the resources and don’t know what else to do. My son is steadfastly unreceptive to therapy. He is also unresponsive to traditional discipline/withdrawal of privileges, etc.
