  1. Thanks everybody, who knew parenting would be so tricky!!!! Especially as they get older!!!!
  2. Thanks for your replies, he does take packed lunch prob 3/5 days a week but has been buying "snacks" on those days too. I think you are right in that the reason I am upset is it is a trust problem rather than just a food problem. We are always told to trust our kids and give them responsibility but when they blatantly lie then yes we should take away their privileges. The only reason this came up is because he had run out of money on his account very quickly so I asked for a print out to see what he had spent, I did believe him when he said he hadnt eaten wheat So yes packed lunches for quite a while even if only to save me money!!!!! He is a bright kid but doesnt seem to quite seem to get the balance of rights and responsibilties.
  3. Hi I am new to this forum but 13 year old son is "supposed" to have been gluten free since last April. To cut a long story short he was really well all over xmas holdiays then got sick as soon as back at school. Luckily for me I can get a print out from the canteen and he has been having wheat products. I had asked him directly before the print out of he had been doing this and he said no!!!! Obviously I have screamed and shouted but am at a loss to know how to get through to him! I spend ages cooking for him and buying expensive gluten-free goodies, he really doesnt miss out, but clearly feels he is. How should I continue with this. 13 is such a tricky age but I feel he should take some responsibility for what he eats, Is that not reasonable? I feel like sayong oh just eat what you want!!!!
