I have a 7yr old ds(almost 8) that is having an issue with eating in front of the kids at school, he has been like this since the middle of pre-k and i dont know what to do to help him eat at school. if the teacher lets him eat behind the cubby then he is fine but other than that he will starve himself till he gets home and try to eat everything in sight!
when we go out to eat he doesnt have any issue eating at all! I am trying to get him to understand that as he gets higher in grades that other teachers may feel he is too old to be getting special provisions just to eat lunch, I guess I just want to know if any of you other moms have experienced this and how did you handle it? do you think I am enabling him by asking his teacher to let him eat behind the cubby?
sorry so long!
