My child has a year 5 camp that is fast approaching. In the beginning she was ok about going, but now is adamant she doesn't want to. DD has never been keen on sleep overs, even with close friends and declines any of these invitations.
She seems really upset about the prospect of spending four nights away from home, and I know as the day draws nearer she will become more and more anxious about it.
I haven't yet paid or signed permission notes as I am so undecided on what to do, and once paid for there is no refund. I know that it will be a great opportunity for her to grow and discover just how much she is capable of. I know that she will have fun with her friends. I just feel so bad about being the one who says "you have to go" when she says she really doesn't want to.
I know that ultimately the decision is mine, but just after any opinions or thoughts on how to deal with this. Would you send your child?
