Still waiting for a change

Hi everyone,

It has been very quiet on here lately, partly due to holidays I presume.
I wonder how you are managing? Is there any more support for school refusers these days? Has it improved? Are schools more understanding?
Now that we are out of the school system, I don't know how things are but change always comes slowly.
I am still waiting to see a change, have maturity kick in, or something or someone turn up who makes a difference. Still in limbo at the moment, which still feels like school refusal as my son does not have much motivation to take steps to move forward.
Hearing how others go after school is helpful as the stories do seem positive.

If you are in the middle of a struggle with school refusl. Hang in there. You are not alone.
Take care everyone,
Linda xx
