School phobia is a type of illness which causes students to be afraid to go to school. This condition is most commonly seen in children，typically between the ages of 8~13，and it can be very upsetting，especially if it is allowed to progress. Symptoms include stomach aches，tiredness，shaking，a racing heart and frequent trips to the toilet.
This common phobia is associated with a wide variety of causes. Most commonly it is the result of separation anxiety，but it can also be caused by different kinds of stress. A child who has recently moved，suffered a loss，or gone through a divorce may develop school phobia ，and phobias can also develop in response to bullying (欺侮)，an unrecognised learning disability，and poor self-image. Understanding the cause of a school phobia is an important step in providing treatment.
A child with school phobia usually refuses to go to school，or protests violently. He or she may become physically ill when ordered to school，or pretend to be sick to avoid going. When the child arrives at school，he or she may run away，or develop behavioural problems in class and on the playground. When school is discussed，the child can become impatient，upset or angry.
Many techniques can be used to manage school phobia，but research suggests that much more effective treatment is required for school phobia to prevent problems developing in later life. Children with this condition usually benefit from seeing a psychologist or doctor who can help the child and provide assistance to help parents and school officials support the child. As soon as a school phobia is identified，parents should take action too. Like other phobias，school phobia gets worse the longer it is left untreated，and it can interfere with a child’s success in school. Adjustments can be made at home and in the classroom to help. If bullying is a cause，for
example，the bullying situation should be solved. A teacher can meet the child at the door and take him or her to class，and provide support so that the child feels a friendly adult is always available.
Changes at home can include supportive language from parents，along with support like assistance with homework. If a child lacks confidence，parents may encourage the child to take up new hobbies that will help them to feel good about themselves. Parents might also talk to their children about their own fears of school and how they got over them，and their own enjoyment of school and school-like activities.

Learning to save money when you’re young is an important lesson. All good lessons and habits begin early, and saving is a skill that everyone needs. Many people—adults included—do not have a good sense of saving for the long run. I have been lucky to learn this lesson early because I have had a grass-cutting business since I was 10 years old. Of the money I make I spend about 10 percent and save the other 90.
Making sure you save and don’t spend too much is a good way to build up wealth. I have put my earnings in a bank. Many teens I know spend all the money they earn so it never has a chance to grow. Young people should realize that their teenage years are a great time to begin saving.
At high school many parents pay for almost everything, so your expenses can be small. If you have a job, you should have fun with some of the money. But you should also save some so that it will grow. Then you can begin planning for your future. When you spend money, you not only lose that money, but also lose the interest you could have earned by saving it.
After high school, college is expensive and then“real”life begins, with expenses such as food and rent. If you can hold onto a good percentage of the money you earn as a teen, going to college and buying a house will be much easier. _________ ,
the more time the money has to grow. If you are in your thirties without any savings, you will always have to struggle. The earlier you begin saving, the easier it is to create a nest egg.
Later in life it can be hard to start saving because general costs of living are more expensive and you may only have enough to pay your bills. If you want to buy a house and have a family, you need money to start with, which comes from saving.
Many say money cannot make you happy, and this is true. But money can help you to lead a secure life.
Saving early will mean you will have to work for fewer years when you are older. It will also allow you to spend time doing the things that you want to do.
In addition to this, it will mean you can live the way you want to without worrying.
