Over the past few days, we’ve been discussing why children may misbehave before school.
Today, we wanted share some more advice… This time, on children saying, “I have a bad tummy” before school.
Firstly, and most importantly – we are not a team of clinicians. If you are worried about any aspect of your child’s health, you must always consult your GP or another licensed medical professional. In this post, we are going to discuss some of the less concerning issues that may be behind, “my tummy hurts”.
Here are some questions to ask yourself and approach with your child…
It may be that your child has a “nervous tummy”, so asking questions or reading stories about this topic may help. Talking with their school can help too, as they may be able to shed some light on any friendship issues or changes in school. It could also be diet related, or a genuine physical health issue, in which case, talking with a GP can help too.
