We’re lucky our son feels his lows usually (not all of them but most of the time.) But, we’ve had a problem where, if we ask him if he feels high, low or in range, he is usually spot-on, but he doesn’t tell us he’s feeling that way unless we ask. I feel like if we can get him to make this leap (telling people he’s feeling low unprompted) we could avoid a lot of crashing lows at daycare and when he’s with other caregivers. This is especially important because our bedrock teacher, who’s super sharp and always on top of his trends, is leaving our preschool and the teachers left to care for him are less experienced and (seemingly) less intuitive about things.
We keep telling him that if he feels that way, he should come tell us or a teacher, but so far he hasn’t really done that. Any ideas for how to help him make that leap?
