Has the father taken the boy to the doctor?? That should be the number one question,if not i would get him there asap you never know if that is a medical issue.And if the father hasn't what in the hell is he waiting on!!! ? And you have every right to stick your nose in it family or not. Talk more to the father a little more and if he hasn't taken the boy to the doctor convience him to take him,and if he refuses call children services and get them involved, I don't like calling them but if a child's well being is at stake then I would. Best of Luck and I hope that he gets to feeling better. Please keep us informed on this.

Is the boy on medication? My DS takes a med that absolutely wipes out his appetite and he doesn't eat all day. How old is the child? Is he old enough to explain why he's not eating? Perhaps he's a picky eater and didn't like what you had to eat! (situations I'm all too familiar with!) I'd try to get to the bottom of this before I involved an outside source.
