Amazing Mum Comp

9yr old Son just picked up an "amazing mum" competition form, from Tesco, we got home and he started to fill it out.

He got stuck.

He asked his mum, "how do you spell your name"

:(

I was just wondering, don't you think that's sad? Our son has always been a bit odd, (tried the doctor,paediatrician, psychiatrist route) No one believes us.

and the fact he got the form and filling it in shows he loves her lots :)

He knows her name, I agree most kids call their mums "mum" who doesn't? I remember one of his cousins spelling her full name when she was 3-4.

dont fret. why would he know how to spell her name if he's only ever called her mum and thats all he's leant to spell when associating his mother to a spelling!!
banned#8
is her name an easy one, sounds how its spelt, at 9 he should be able to spell things even if he has never written them, doesnt mean hes strange though

I dont understand hon, whats sad?

I guess my kids woulda known my name at that age but all children have their own strengths and weaknesses.

A friend of mine was telling me there was a lil boy left at the after school club the other day 11 yrs of age, no-one came to pick him up and he didn't even know his own phone number or address. They had to have him lead them to his home.

So no, rest assured it isn't all that sad, it's okay... just take the opportunity to teach him your names and make sure he knows other basic information.

Long story, basically he doesnt eat well, I dont think its a problem, i think he will always be a beanpole! One day the dinner lady at school came out at 3pm and told us he doesnt eat anything, , not wanting people pointing there fingers at us and shouting "neglect"! we worked out his BMI and the website said contact your GP immediatley, which we did, they then sent us to the paediatrician , took blood samples etc, asked us about our son. We told him all our concerns, he refferred us to the child physciatirst who saw us for all of 20mins, and that was that. He still doesn't eat, he drinks 1-2cups a day, the docs told us he must drink at least 6. I wont be surprised if he collapses one day through exhaustion. I could list all his weirdnesses, like he tip toes everywhere, but...what's the point? We get no help from friends/family, no-one looks after him, he doesnt seem to have friends at school either. thats the worst thing, no help from family and school friends seem to avoid him.

if you are so concerned then go back to your gp and demand him to be seen again, although dont do this because he cant spell a name - lol

he sounds like he may have slight aspergers, all our children have little things about them that make them them, although if i was you i would be changing my gp if your gp sent your child to a physciatirst without exploring other avenues 1st

My son has mild signs of autism which includes aspergers,tourettes,dispraxia,dyslexia and attention defecit. His emotions are still a bit primitive and has many compulsions but has thrived on stability and routine.
When he was about four he was very worried about finding a wife and supporting her, he was thinking about the pressures of being a man!!
He is now eating but it took many years as it didn't have the same attraction to him as a "standard" child (don't use the word normal as what is normal??)
Lov eand understanding that we are all different is the best treatment but I didn't believe that when he was about 9 or 12 and having tantrums.
He is now a healthy 18 year old and I always said that his brain worked in a different order to mine, but worked very well.

Would be thinking of changing your GP tbh. :thumbsup:

Should maybe try getting him into a afterschool thing like Boys Brigade, music, sports, karate, boxing etc.
#19
Not being harsh, but i would NEVER call my child "odd" "weird" or "strange" on a public forum. It sounds like you have quite a lot of resent inside, let it all out, and tell the truth....you relly got the hump because he didnt pick up the best dad award :)

I wouldn't do that until you find out a bit more about why he is the way he is. If he's on the autistic spectrum (and like otherss, I suspect he may be) those things may not suit him.

A common quirk of Aspies is not liking different kinds of food to touch - so separate burger and bun, for instance, not all together in a sandwich. Have you tried stuff like that?

My daughters think that my name is 'mummy' :)
