DD14 has decided that breakfast is now a complication that ruins her day. Normally I'd put it down to you know; her deciding what her stomach does and doesn't like - except for the fact that she uses it as an excuse to get out of PE by saying she feels nauseous. DD catches the bus to school - but that is more of a privliege than a necessity. I'm a SAHM (got 3 under 4)  so I can drive her to school. I'm wondering - would it be acceptable to refuse to allow her to leave the house if she hasn't had a appropriate amount of food before school? remove the bus privliege? If she is late for school because she chooses to battle this with me she will be fully responsible for all detentions that she recieves and I will not be writing a tardy note for her. Does this sound acceptable or should I just give up and let her catch the bus and not participate in PE daily?

Sounds like you need to get to the root of why she doesn't want to go to PE....

I've talked to the teacher and she says that it's just laziness. All the girls in this particular class are lazy when it comes to the physical activity and on fire when it comes to the theory. Typical girls - they don't want the boys to see them get messy. :P

Skipping breakfast is not a good habit to start developing.

I would figure out why she doesn't want to go to PE. Then, I'd find a different way that doesn't interfere with school to get her to eat.

Don't force her to eat.

I completely agree with you. I personally feel like it screws up your metabolism for the rest of the day because you're more hungry by the time you eat next so you eat more and then if you don't exercise you gain wait faster, etc.

She's 14.

She is more than able to learn cause=effect.

I would send her to school w/o breakfast. See if she gets hungry by 3rd period....

I am NOT a breakfast person. Even edging towards 40, when visiting my parents they still want to make me an egg but all I want is coffee or tea.

They never pushed food issues.

I don't make food an issue in my home.

If you're hungry, you'll eat. If you don't want to eat, fine.

she doesn't want to *do* PE because she's lazy according to the teacher. This particular teacher has a group of girls that only like doing the theory work, and hate participating in the practical because they're worried that the boys won't like them getting messy >.>
