S5 Episode 7 – When Your Kid Hates School – Parental As Anything ABC Podcast

School refusal is a big issue, especially in the wake of the pandemic. While most kids will complain about school at some point along the way, what happens when it escalates into outright school refusal?

Maggie Dent talks to education consultant and former Principal Adam Voight about how to tackle it head on.

From the best ways to advocate for your child, to how to find support, plus the families who went through it and came out the other side. And we ask the big question; should you just change schools?
