Why? Because when he was three Daddy still lived with us. He was a bit sad and had a little cry.
Took him to the GPs this mornign and she is referring him to be seen by a dietician and allergy testing. She also recommended I speak to the person at school that deal with emotions.
That didn't go brilliantly because she started to offer me counselling and I had to interrupt and explain I wanted support for B. I cried and made an *** of myself through out the conversation. Hopefully they will give him a bit more emotional support now.

can't imagine how hard it must be to hear B say things like that, but I guess it's just the simple way LOs see things.
Hope B does get the support he needs now, and maybe you should have some too xxx

Poor B - pleased you've got referred for the allergy testing, etc.
My friend's little boy was given extra support at school for dealing with his emotions (completely different scenario because he wasn't handling conflict in the classroom very well and would go into a big strop at the slightest issue - probably the example of having a teenage older brother at home) and I think they found it useful. He had half an hour sessions once a week for a while and I think its really helped him. As I say, not the same scenario at all, but its good that these days they recognise that small children do have feelings and that you can't just brush it all under the carpet and hope it goes away.
