And how to snap him out of it?
I'm a single mom and I work full time, lately overtime too. My son is always home before me and this year I stopped having the babysitter come over to stay with him until I come home. Now I just call him a couple times and have the neighbor drop by and check in on him. He's quite mature for his age, he knows to lock the doors, not open them to strangers, who to call for help if needed and that I expect his homework done by the time I get home.
However, lately I noticed that he would rather sit hungry than even assemble a sandwich. I'm not even expecting him to actually do anything. I leave everything prepared for him down to sliced bread and chopped up salad veggies with dressing on the side, so he literally just needs to put it together and pour the dressing over the veggies, and he still won't do it. And that's without even going into anything more complicated than a sandwich.
The weird thing is that he used to like helping out in the kitchen. A couple years ago he even insisted on doing everything he could by himself. And now this...
Any ideas on how I could make sure he's not sitting hungry while waiting for me to come home?
ETA: I always take him along when I go grocery shopping, he picks out what he wants, some of it is microwaveable and I've offered him leftovers too. Still nothing.
