What should I do if I think my children are calling me to get out of school early because they are being bullied?

You want to be sensitive to what else might be going on and you're trying to communicate with them and find out what's going on because if they don't tell you then you can't know. You don't want to assume that they are just trying to avoid school because they don't want to go or it makes them nervous. Maybe there is something else going on such as bullying and you have to have that line of communication open with your child. Do not bombard them with questions and assume that they are just being lazy or that they just don't care. Or you know they're just too scared yet not making those assumptions but opening it up to a conversation such as “I'm really concerned about you. You seem to be having a hard time with this transition. What can I do to help? What do I need to know? Is anybody making this harder for you?” Have a conversation with them that isn't about them being in trouble or that you are making any assumptions about them and their character. It is just you want to know what you can do to help.
