There's a boy I have regularly (whether it's specials, his reg room, or workshop). Every single time he sees me the first thing he does is tell me his tummy hurts. I've tried "Well did you have breakfast?" "It's almost lunchtime" "Maybe you played too hard at recess" "You don't have a fever" and even "You say this every single time." Nothing has worked.

I did leave a note about it today and asked another teacher. She didn't have any advice though. Any suggestions ladies?

I had a student a couple years ago who said that EVERY day to me. It took me a few months of "you are fine" and "stick it out until recess" before she finally stopped. It had worked the year before and she would get sent down to the office, or sent home, and she was fine. I'm wondering if your student does it daily too and is really persistent thinking that you'll send him home?

It's possible. He did get one of the teachers in the cafeteria to send him to the nurse. (Of course, she sent him back to me...)

Do you know his teacher well? I'd be curious to know what she says and if he does it to her too!

I did talk to her Friday. She told me she talked to him about it, but I'm not sure that she'd understood the frequency of his complaints. He just told her that he "just didn't feel good." And he might not have, but there's no way for me to know since he says it every time he sees me.
