Do you think its stress / anxiety ??

If you've ruled out medical issues, like the stomach flu etc... then maybe he is feeling anxiety ?

My daughter threw up for a good year because of anxiety.

- Just a thought. Maybe look at his morning routine, his homelife - does he miss being with you? Is there things going on in his life (like divorce or a death, a new baby etc..) that is making him not want to leave home?

I thought it was just me. My daughter started PreK and has been having the same issues. She refuses to eat in school and has been getting sick often over the last month. I just don't know what to do anymore. It's frustrating and I have tried everything. Any advise would be appreciated.
