Example text

He stayed in bed and ate nothing but eventually asked to come down and play on the computer. The next day, he again refused to go to school. His mother thought that there must be something going on, bullying perhaps, and contacted his teacher. She could shed no light on the problem. After another week, in which Johnny went to school on only two days, his mother tackled him about what was wrong, telling him firmly that she simply did not believe his story about tummy aches. Through tears, Johnny told her that he thought if he stayed at home he could make sure she was safe and that Daddy did not pack his bags to leave.

In a typical class of eight- to nine-year-olds, there will be children who live with one parent, both parents or neither parent. Of those who live with a lone parent, some will see the non-resident parent regularly; others will not know the identity of the absent parent. Some will be in the care of the local authority, living in foster families. Some may be adopted; others may be living with grandparents or aunts and uncles. Some children have a gay parent or live with gay foster carers or adopters.

Family holidays, whether spent in hotels, self-catering accommodation or on a campsite, are significant steps towards sleeping away from home without the family. Many children practise by spending time with grandparents or other members of the extended family. By the age of eight or nine, children may well be in the midst of a social life which includes opportunities such as “play dates” or sleepovers. Most children want to take up these opportunities but it is a big step to put oneself in the hands of someone else’s parents for a whole night.
