This past week my son has made excuses not to go to school. His first semester he had perfect attendance and academic excellence. He never wanted to miss school. If he was sick, he would go anyway. We are 2 weeks into the new semester and he doesn't want to go. He claims his throat hurts and he feels bad. Well, he never wants to go to the doctor but wanted to on this particular morning. I took him, but our family doctor said he was ok, had the beginning of a sore throat from allergies which he has year round. He gave him a prescription for antibiotics but said he was ok otherwise. He takes karate 3x a week and doesn't want to go to that either. He got hurt in a bouncy playhouse, fell on his back and injured his sternum about a month ago and wasn't able to compete in karate tournaments, but he is fine now. He yelled at my husband this past evening like he's never ever done before. We grounded him from his computer and t.v. but my husband gave it back the next day.
