No matter how many times I explain the story of the boy who cried wolf, I cannot get DD to knock it off with this complaint. Every single day this week she has complained of one ailment or another - and she is NOT sick I promise you. I'm trying so very hard to remain level headed and loving but firm on the phone when she calls me at work or when she complains in the morning before school.
Near as I can tell, she is not having any difficulties either at school or the after-school care program so I have no idea what is prompting her to continue with this even though she sees me not falling for the bait.
Anyone else dealing with this? How do you handle these situations? I'm just frustrated and worried that one day she really WILL call me sick - and I won't be able to believe her until she is picked up at the normal hour.
