My daughter has just turned 15 and has been struggling with her grades all year. She is a freshman in High school. She has missed a lot of days (not a huge amount about 10 days this year) because of minor things, such as headaches, stomach aches, cramps etc. When I keep her home she seems OK after the morning. I have been making her go unless she is really sick because I know that she is behind.
Recently she has broken up with a boy friend and has called me to take her out of school because she can't stop crying. I have suggested that she talk to a counselor or teacher at school, but she said that she does not want to. I don't want her sitting there crying all day, but if she was crying all day wouldn't the teacher notice and say something? I know that she is upset and it's only been a couple of days, but is this normal teenage behavior? Should I take her out of school?
