    I love how very thoughtful you are about how to read what is really going on in your child’s life, when they say they are ill. Sometimes they might not be truly sick of body, but sick of heart–and that is when they need their parents to step in, and help them talk about it. Great post!

    Very nice article, Jenn. I remember those days that I pretended to have a stomach ache. They were usually on Tuesdays, or whatever day it was, that I had piano lessons with “that” nun. It must be difficult trying to decipher what’s going on the mind of your daughter. I pray all is well with her. Peace!

    Great tips for parents.

    I remember my mum always knew I was definitely ill because it would mean missing some of my favourite activities after school (I enjoyed being part of the school band and then going to dance classes afterwards). She knew I wouldn’t purposely try to avoid them, even if I didn’t really want to go to school one day.

    I never had this type of problem and thank goodness my kiddo is already 36 years old! 🙂

    Still, I can imagine it not being easy having to deal with a situation like this when it arises.

    Did you ever determine why Nove didn’t want to go to school?

    It’s that fine parental line between trusting that they’re genuine and building the bond or calling them on a furphy and letting them know they need to take responsibility and be honest. Never easy at the time!

    We went through this with my son his first few weeks of middle school, but he adjusted and is doing very well. He played the headache card several times. This is some very good advice on how to move forward and figure out what’s going on.
