My 5 year-old, due to start school next week had an incident today at daycare that upset me a lot.
When i I went to pick him up the carers said he'd been lying/sleeping in the sandpit for an hour and a half. They were there of course and asking him if he was ok but assumed he just was tired.
I knew instantly that there was something wrong. Turned out after some coaxing and getting them to get the other kids away that he had had a serious case of diarrhoea and was horribly embarrassed. He knows his carer's very well (5 years) but could not speak up.
I got him up and took him to the bathroom. Once I got him cleaned up he was fine but honestly, my heart broke to see him so unable to move for so long and keep up the facade of being ok as long as no one knew.
I may be overreacting but please just reassure me. I spoke to him when we got home and assured him it's ok to quietly let his teacher know he needs some help if he needs help and that it's an accident or he is sick.
