For the past week several times a day my son (27 months) says "mama my body hurts, please give me one more donut"...?!? I ask him what he means but he gets frustrated and days the exact same words. I asked if he has to poop ( he does gone daily) if his has a tummy ache, or if he just wants a donut. No, no, and no. He's persistent on this though.wwyd?

My 3 year old tells me all the time "Mommy my tummy hurts I need sweet tart" she just wants candy.

Maybe ask him to point to what hurts? Or explain that a donut won't help pain.

Seems like there is no pain.
But we never have donuts, so it's weird

Eh maybe he's trying to use it as an excuse to want a donut. I ignore weird things like that when my son was that age. He would tell me he has a booboo so he needed a cupcake or cookie. He just wanted junk food and would try getting it by using what he though would be a good excuse.

Oh man, kids this age will try anything to get sweets.



My daughter tells me her tummy hurts and she needs candy to feel better.

yea he just wants a donut and has probably learned when he doesnt feel good he gets more of what he wants.
