argghhh.. DS who is 5 1/2, has been LYING About being sick... He LOVES school and doesn't want to miss school, and thinks that when he's sick, he doesn't get to have fun.. Which, he's right, we make him lay low.. But this morning, he threw up with his NEBULIZER facemask on.. I was soooo mad... He said "well I felt sick at breakfast, then I didn't, then I did again." And he told his dad he was "tired".. I flipped out because I'm so sick of him lying or not telling us when he's sick.. He was almost ready to leave for school.. He would've thrown up in the car, or AT school and DH would've had to drive all the way back there to get him.. I know he probably really didn't mean to get sick with the nebulizer on, but he never told us he wasn't feeling good.. at breakfast, 3 bites of a bananana and "i'm not hungry anymore" and when he woke up, he told daddy, he was really tired, and needed to go back to sleep, but he also stayed up until like 10pm in his room before he went to sleep after we put him to bed at 8!

I don't know how else to explain to him that he has to tell us when he's sick.. That going to school sick makes all his friends sick...He started the whole crying bit about not being able to go to school today and missing his friends.

I hate that he does this.. We can't help him feel better if we don't even know what hurts.

I am such a pukeaphobe as it is (I mean, I have a real phobia of it) and to be honest, having more children, the biggest thing I dread is another kid thats going to be puking LOL... I know its not the end of the world, but thats the one thing I can't stand.

*sigh* *smacks head*

I'm sorry he's sick! I get so sad when DD is sick because she's just not herself. I was like your son when I was younger. I just never stopped to consider why I didn't feel well and would end up going to school sick. I guess I had other things on my mind, and my physical health was never one of them.

I have the same problem with my ds. He woke up sick one morning and threw up before the bus came so I told him he had to stay home. He said well I feel better now just send me to school anyway if I throw up there they will clean it up Sigh.

At that age they just don't seem to get it at all.

haha its weird b/c most kids fake being sick to get out of going to school. He fakes not being sick in order to go to school. But who knows, he might be confused about being sick esp if things like nausea comes and goes.

Its just a matter of getting him to have open communication with you guys on how he's feeling esp if he has moments where he feels well and then doesnt. Many boys are less sensitive than girls, so just keep that in mind too.
