To not take Dd to the doctors..
Foxton20 · 10/12/2019 16:14
Dd12 has been complaining of a sore shoulder for the past few days. She refuses to take paracetamol and demands I take her to the doctors.
She says she can’t carry her bag etc.
I say she’s putting it on to get a day off school and/or out of pe.
Aibu to not take her doctors?
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

I wouldn’t accuse her of lying BUT I do think you need to use a bit of common sense here. How bad is the pain? What kind of pain is it? Does she know what caused it?
Is the shoulder sore enough to warrant a visit to the doctors? If she’s just pulled a muscle then, no. Personally I’d keep an eye on it, and if it’s not getting any better then contemplate the doctors in a few days.

Right, this may sound a bit weird, but I get this when I wear an ill fitting bra! Could it be she needs one or a new one? It actually really hurts, but obviously I don't go to gps for it.
If she is putting it on to get out of school and she normally doesn't do that, I would wonder why that is. Is there a test in a subject she hates or is something else going on?

It's a weird conclusion for you to jump to when she has no form for trying to get out of school and an achey shoulder is highly unlikely to result in a day off anyway. As to why she won't have calpol, why does she say she doesn't want it? Would she put ice or heat on it instead?
