My son dislikes going to school. It started in grade 4. His teacher bullied and embarrassed him because he wasn’t comfortable performing/speaking in front of the class. Grades 5 and 6 were better due to a great teacher. Grades 7 and 8 were also pretty good. The issues started again in grade 9. The school counsellor and a few teachers made him feel something was wrong with him. Grade 10 has been the worst. Started high school. Too many people. Teachers either said he has a problem because he was rude or just didn’t care if he was there or not. Was difficult to see his school counsellor. They had too many kids to see. Also, he does not enjoy most of the subjects. Basically, he’s told: too bad, so sad. All the kids just hide out in the bathrooms. Got many calls from him being upset and having panic attacks while I was at work. He just keeps saying he can’t be there. Tried doing online science. Started late. Wasn’t able to finish. Plus, it was lonely. I don’t know what to do. I hate making him go somewhere he hates, yet doing school online is lonely. Not good for an anxious kid with bouts of sadness and depression. Options? He would like to go to some of the classes but has a hard time with the long, kind of boring ones. Three hours is too long for one class with a short break, like English or Socials. I don’t recall having such long classes for 2 blocks. I think 1 block is plenty.
