School avoidance is often a symptom of a deeper problem, but what could be the problem? Whether its social anxiety, fear of bullying, relational issues, embarrassment over school performance, or a number of other possibilities, there is help. If ignored, it can have a negative effect on socialization skills, education, self-esteem, coping skills, and problem-solving.
