Abstract

Background: Fear from school can also be described as any rejection by a child to join a school or to have
difficult time attending the school for a complete day by a child. Aims of the study: To describe parents
knowledge of their children with fear from school. Methodology: This study examined the analysis on the
data collected by the Ibn Alhythm primary School all through from the middle of October till the end of
January 2011school year. The sample data took the form of surveys, questionnaires , and interviews by a
researcher with parents who have been analyzed to investigate the associations among variables related to
fear from school behaviour. “Ibn Alhythm primary School District ‘s Special Education Department collected
data during the 2010-2011 school year. In hopes of identifying a representative sample of the school-refusing
students in the district, the Special Education Department sent participation requests to a random sample of
40 of the 40 families described as having students who missed 18 or more days of the Ibn Alhythm primary
School during the 2010-2011 school year. The information obtained did not include information from any
students who were in Ibn Alhythm primary School through 1st grade or who missed fewer than 18 days
of school, the information has been analyzed through data analysis. The results: The results of the study
revealed that the educational program had a positive impact on the knowledge of family members. The
results of the study have demonstrated that there is a correlation between the mothers’ knowledge and their
demographic characteristics (age of parents, educational level, occupation, residential area). In general,
knowledge of parents related to fear was low. However, the parents applied preventive measure towards
their children with fear .A quasi-experimental study was conducted in the Ibn Alhythm primary school from
the middle of October till the end of January 2011.Recommendation: Keep the sample group large. The
author should get a fair representation of the population in doing so. Parents having a minimum level of
experiences at school phobia, need a specific education program and training sessions. A specific education
program can be designed and described to parent’s who have a minimum level of knowledge to enhance
their level of knowledge.”
