Our expert says:
I'm sure our many other good moms among ou regular readers can tell you how they have handled similar situations. It's not unusual for a child to be temporarily bothered by attending school, especially when they encounter a somewhat frightening teacher. And sore stomachs and headaches are not unusual either. hey are genuine in the sense of generally sincere and painful, but not genuine in that they rarely indicate any significant physical problem ' they usually clear up fine when the anxiety is alleviated.
Without meeting the teacher, it's hard for you to judge whether talking to her will or won't help, but it's probably worth a try ( and, if the teacher proves to be unsympathetic and unhelpful, then speak to the headmaster / headmistress ). It's likely that something can be sorted out to relieve the little one's anxieties and settle the matter.
