Help! My 5 year old all of a sudden is acting withdrawn

I started to notice it during christmas break, but now his teacher phoned to tell me her and the other teachers noticed something is wrong. He doesn't want to eat, play, or do anything. She said he doesn't even want to pick up a pencil in class. He is the kid who used to be the class clown, always making people laugh. I'm taking him to the doctor tomorrow to see what she thinks. I just need to know what other mamas think.

  • take him to the doctors and talk to him. see if he can tell you what is bothering him. it could be that he is really upset about something, he may have been abused, seizures, i don't know. i would be concerned and good for you for making the step to figure it out
