SCHOOL VOMITTING

My 5 yr old boy has been admitted to a big school.Before this he was going to a montessori school.Never in his montessori days he has behaved sensitively.He was a friendly and intelligent boy.Offlately in his new school he is vomitting every day.At first we thought becoz of the new routine,new envioronment,or may be new study style.We have have tried many times to ask our child that what is bothering him,but we are not able to get the exact reason behind this.I feel so helpless ,every morning he is going to school happily and god knows what is happening that he vomits.

This very well could be stress related.....your son is young and most likely can not make the connection between his stress and vomiting.

Children can not articulate their feelings and his way of showing his disruption may be the vomiting.

If you have taken him to his pediatrician and they have ruled out any physical causes (like food allergy, intestinal issues etc..) - then I would suggest finding a really good Child Psychologist to sort out what is going on.

Take care,

thanks Kathleen,today also he vomitted and the major problem is that i know only one side of the story.Here the teachers are not approachable.But i think i have to write a letter to the school principal and seek the cooperation of the class teacher.Then only i can understand exactly what is the scenario.I have to talk to the class teacher.

Yes, that is a really good idea. Can you email the teacher and Principal to set up a meeting?

Does your son like his teacher? What does he say about school in general. Sometimes asking questions about his day, how the teacher is, how his new friends are etc.... may give you a bit more information too.

Hope you find some answers! Keep us posted.

some of my relatives are advising me to wait,becoz till now the school has not complained or discussed with us regarding this problem.I think they are also trying to make him comfortable.Yesterday my son told me dat hez teacher beat him.now i have no idea about this.My child is a very shy child why his teacher beat him ,i dnt know.

Well, if I were you I would not wait. This is your child, and you want him to feel better, and more connected at school.

Waiting is doing nothing, and a more involved parent is always a good thing. You are your son's voice and while he is still so young, you have a right to always talk with his teacher and get involved when your son isn't feeling right.

I think a face-to-face with the teacher is an important step.

Take care,

That's really good to hear, and I am glad the teacher is well aware of your son and his sensitivity.

Take care!!
