didaskaleinophobia - maybe I have it

Today I discovered this message on FJ's MSN. "didaskaleinophobia- maybe I have it". Big words for a 13 yr old. Could not understand the word so did what everyone would do in this age -I 'Googled' the word.

'disdaskaleinophobia according to ( means a phobia for school.

Now why would a child who has never missed a day of school other than for illness has this - only reason i can fathom is because of the events of the past few days has affected her quite badly and crushed her spirit.

It is hard sometimes for a young child to understand why when adults refuse to listen and react negatively.
