fbpx My Teen Is Dreading School and Gets Extremely Anxious in the Mornings
Authored by Dr. Michelle Murray on August 10, 2021
Dear Dr. Michelle:

My teen is dreading school coming up and in the past gets extremely anxious in the morning. I don’t think he wants to go to school. I’ve tried to ask him what is wrong, and he says nothing, but I know something is wrong. He used to like going to school. How do I get to the bottom of this?

Sincerely,

Katrina
