yesterday me, my son and my mother went out to buy school supplies. I let my son pick out everything so I knew it would be what he liked.
By the time we got home and I was putting everything away he didn't like his shoes or his backpack anymore, but didn't know why. he didn't ask for new ones and he said he'd use them, just that he didn't like them.
Then this morning he no longer likes the juice I bought (but he'll drink it so it doesn't go to waste), he didn't like the fruit snacks I bought because they are too sour - even though he's always loved them before.
this has been going on for at least 2 weeks. even things he does like, when I ask if he likes it he never just says yes, it's always "it's ok" or something else dismissive.
I've tired talking to him about it, and he apologised a lot. And now when I ask if he likes something he tells me he can't say because he doesn't want to say he doesn't.
Is this a stage, is there something I can do about it?

Kids do this. They need to learn that the dessions they make, some of them can be changed. This is a good time to teach him that.
