My first grade son is having a bad day at school. So bad that his teacher called me during recess to see if I knew why (bad night sleep etc). He was upset that a friend brought birthday treats & they aren't gluten free, mad that he didn't get to go to his brother's preschool Christmas program (I didn't know I needed to go get him, and I didn't know he wanted to go, he wasn't sure when I asked) & overall just having a bad day.
I need to talk to him about how not everyone can (and will) accomodate his need for gluten free food (he is new to this, so its a learning process). (I also need to get gluten free treats in the freezer at school for these occasions. I'll do that tomorrow.)
How else would you handle this? This isn't normal behavior for him at all - which is part of why his teacher was calling.
