My eight year old son started having 'stomach' pains just over a year ago. Anything he didn't want to do, he would say he had a sore stomach....if he was in school he would ask to go to the restroom and come back telling the teacher he had vomited - of course that means an instant call to Mum and being sent home for 24hours. I am a stay at home Mum and he knows I am here. This went on for a couple of months then just stopped. A little while after, I was talking to a girlfriend and her seven year old was doing/saying exactly the same things.....then another friend voiced she was concerned about her seven year old girl, who was complaining of stomach pain a lot-did I think she needed to go to the DR? I began to wonder if this is an age thing.....a lot is happening in their little lives, things are changing for them, they aren't babies, but aren't at the age for responsibility yet either...kind've in the middle of everything. They want to be with Mum, but don't want to be seen as babies, so they give what could be considered by their peers as a good reason for being at/sent home. My feeling is you need to stick it out, give her all the cuddles you can, but be clear that she needs to go to child care....I wouldn't let her stay home with daddy, she needs to keep to the routine and know what is expected of her. There will be tears, and more tummy aches, but if she has no temp and no other symptoms, then it is probably psychological. Hope that helps.
