I work at home while taking care of my terminally ill husband we have a 7 year old who has already dealt with more than any 7 year old should. But my husband has liver cancer and I take care of him as well as work full time at home. Our son has really decided he does not want to go to school and mornings are awful here. It breaks my heart to see him beg and plead to please stay home I do not know what to do do any of you have any suggestions I would appreciate any and all. Thank you so much

first of all why doesn't he want to go to school is it because his dad is sick or is it because he is being picked on. I would get to the bottom of that first. If it is because dad is sick get him into some counseling both through the school and possibly outside to help him deal with his emotions. If it is bullying then it needs to be brought to the attention of the school so that it stops. I hope this helps little ones are afraid just like us and I am sure he realizes dad might not be there when he gets home he might be afraid he won't get to say goodbye.
