    It is unfair when schools ‘punish’ a child for being sick when it is not their fault. I hope Boo manages to get some help soon, my daughter had issues with mood swings and I felt that I was constantly walking on eggshells around her. We did get referred but unfortunately she had come through the worst at the time so it came a little too late and ended too soon. We ended up paying privately when she went through a similar experience last year which was a lot more useful. I hope it doesn’t come to that for you.

    Oh no! What a rotter of a week for you. I hope your Little Man is feeling a bit better now. It is so frustrating that kids are punished from school because they are sick. You do right keeping him off school if he will be missing out on the treats.
    I hope you get some extra help for Boo from the clinic. Teenage years are tough enough without adding extra mental health issues on top.
    I hope next week is a week of going forwards for you and your family x

    That is so unfair. Poor Little Man. I would do the same and take him out myself after all between now and July there aren’t that many schools days left. I hope Boo can get the help she needs too.

    I really don’t like attendance awards – it’s so unfair to punish children for being unwell and it seems daft that sickness has to be authorised by a GP note when there are so many things that children get unwell with that can, and should be managed at home. Poor Little Man. I hope he is feeling better now. I’m sorry that Boo is struggling too with her mental health. Really hope that you can get the support she needs. Big hugs to you all x #WotW
