Am Fam Physician. 2004;70(3):447

to the editor: This letter is in regards to the article, “School Refusal in Children and Adolescents,”1 that appeared in the October 15, 2003, issue of American Family Physician. I wish that the author had included information about home schooling. Our family and many families worldwide have benefited from this educational option.
