why do kids make excuse so they don't have to come with you? I say this because today I am suppose to go to Michigan for an appointment and my son came in and said "Mom I don't feel good"... I said to him you are still coming with me rather sick or not.. Now he's running around like nothings wrong.. My question is why do kids try and pull things like that on their parents? Do your kids try things like this on you?

they want to do their own thing and they are so so moody. they just want to have sooooooo much fun and be them selves, if they feel that a certain place might not be as much fun as their present place they refuse to go.lol. which is good. you can always dance a bit , put on some music get them in the mood.and they are ready, all energetic and cool. lots of fun times, apple.

Kids do this all the time. If he has ever gone with you before he probably remembers that is wasn't fun being at the appointment with you and doesn't want to go again. It was grown up stuff and he doesn't understand any of that. All he really knows is what is important to him today. He wants to stay in his familiar surroundings and do his stuff. They just want to do what they want to do. It is kinda like when you want the toys picked up and they say, "I can't" or "I will do it later". But as soon as you say we are going to the park they are out the door and on their way..LOL
