I experienced it, and coped as best I could for infants and juniors but senior school was another matter - after a stressful year seven experience I walked into school at the beginning of year 8 for my first term, and a feeling took over me... I just could not stay here any longer.....and I knew somehow there must be a way that meant I didn't have to. 
Not many people know that while an education is compulsory - going to school is not! 
My nurturing and loving family have always valued the importance of self care...and if somethings is not right....we must change it. Life is…
