Kids get sick often. We all know this. Either their immune system is not working perfectly, or they simply do not care about hygiene that much. You know kids. I mean, this is normal. But, how can you be sure that your kids is always telling you the truth?
Sometimes, kids tend to pretend that they are sick so that they do not have to do something they do not like. Well, you know your children, so you should be able to recognize whether they are telling you the truth or not. But if you feel that your child is only pretending, the problem may be serious.
And you should probably talk to your child about it. Ask him or her what the problem is. Sometimes it may be something bigger like bullying, or simply the fact that your child does not get enough attention. If you suspect that your child pretends to be sick, do not give him or her any extra attention. And try to persuade your child do so the homeworks even when they are not at school.
But, first, talk to pediatrician. You do not want to mistreat your child, do you? Well, good luck! And do not let it get on your nerves.
