  • my son tells me all the time his belly hurts. I think he does it when he feels he isn't getting enough attention.

  • I know when i was little I had a reaction to some medication. I didn't itch when i was distracted by the tv. But then when i wasn't doing anything it would itch and I would scratch. My parents got upset by this and at first thought i was "playing" them.

    I would have it checked out.... sometimes you just can't tell.

  • My daughter "played"me and her whole daycare staff last week.She was whiney and acting sick.She said "Call Mommy" all sad. So they did and said she wasn't herself today. I picked her up and she was fine. Now she whines when I leave her until she sees my car drive away.hey feel played. So do I. Another better example of her conniving is .... One day she was laying on her brother's pillow and she said to him"Haha I got your pillow,Bobby." He said "That's ok .I got your bedroom." She said it was her room. Then she dropped the subject . A little later she said to him" Bobby,will you turn my bedroom light on?". When he did she said "See,I told you it was still my room." She outwitted him and he is 20y/o.She's 3.
