But the situation changes drastically between the ages of eleven and fourteen, when there are serious hormonal alterations in girl’s bodies, and menstruation starts. Hormonal changes often are the cause of headaches, which make girls more amenable to this disease than teenagers-boys. During an interview it was found out that among teen-agers from twelve through seventeen years of age fifty six percent of boys and seventy four percent of girls have headache for the last month.
For medical doctors it is not a revelation that more often that not the reason wherefore children skip classes is frequent and bad headaches complaints. This type of headaches often affects children from nine to fourteen years of age. These pains are usually daily; they begin in the morning and proceed several hours. Sometimes medical doctors may be at a loss – which type of headache they are dealing with. They may be: migraine, combination of migraine with headache under stress or just a make-believe to skip classes.

In case of a true migraine it is necessary to detail a child about his or her disease and how to treat it; the child should know exactly what to do if a headache attack begins. If a headaches affected child attends school he or she must always keep medicines about himself or herself.

The child may be very frightened if a migraine attack happened not in a calm and safe homishness, but at school. Such episode may make the child feel weak, sick, alien and strange.

Parents should break the circle, they must help the child to make sense in the reason of the fears and overcome them. Parents should revive self-respect and self-confidence in their child. If parents manage to return self-confidence to their child he or she will never be afraid and headaches will be by far less frequent. Parents must seek that their children have mind to go to school, otherwise migraines will go on.
If a child is affected with headaches he or she needs reasoning that somebody aside from him or her also may have such pains. Perhaps, explanation that somebody of beloved relatives (may be the parents themselves) are affected with the same headache will help to change relations to the disease.
