FYI, she has a myopia (nearsightness) and use glasses for a week. Doctor said the has it becouse of genetic, from me. So do yo think is it about older group or about glasses? Please advice me..

It may be because of the older group or because of the glasses. Please talk to her teacher about her reluctance and assure her that she will be safe.

About the glasses, I've asked to her teacher and ask to the teacher to take care her more. And now, she has been sitting to the middle front of the class. I appriciate that. and about the older group, I think she needs more friend, becaose her old friends are in another group. I hopre she comfortable with her new friends soon. Thanks for your advice..

First we should ask the daughter,why she should not go to school?If it is about the glasses. Advice her that you are looking good and intelligent wearing the glass as well as looking famous.

She like to wear the glasses at home. but, doesnt like to wear it at school. She said she is shy to wear becaose everybody is looking at her glasses. If I force her to wear it, she could be deny to wear at all. that's I dont want to.

could be that she has to wear glasses (poor baby)! If she continues try enrolling her in the K12 program it's a cyber school thats completely free and they provide everything!

Doctor said, it was because of heredity. what I regret is that I was late to know the condition of her eyes. Now one of my priority is keeping the situation does not get worse while continuing to seek treatment for her eyes.

Try asking her why she does not want to go to school. If she says it is because of her wearing glasses then try giving a positive twist to it. "Darling, you look great wearing them.". If she is anxious try relieving anxiety. Just my two cents. I am not a parent but I can imagine what it is like. :)

I already ask her, but I'm not sure it's because her glasses. My wife said, she look scared (not shy) when passed an older group. Maybe I should ask the teacher and others parent whether someone else through the same thing

First you ask why you don't want to go to school,you are afraid of older group or is about glasses.If she says its about older group than tell her they won't do any thing,they are all your brothers and be comfortable,where as if she says its about glass,you better say you look very beauty wearing glass,it suits you and very soon i will be wearing same as you.Advice her..

Talk to your daughter first. Ask her why she don't like to go to school. If it is because of the older group... Maybe you should go with her to school and observe first. Let the other kids know that your daughter have her parents to protect her. If it is about the glasses... rest assure your daughter that she should not be ashamed of wearing something that she needs. Show her pictures of people wearing eyeglasses ( especially famous people) . Wearing eyeglasses if fashionable nowadays, some wear it to accessorized their get-up. Have a heart to heart talk first with your kid... then you could decide what to do.
