I picked up my boy from school yesterday and he told me that the back of his head was hurting. I felt his head and I found a huge egg, so I asked what happened and he told me he fell backwards and hit his head. I asked him how and he said he just slipped on something but didn’t know what and that he did it on the grass, not sure if it was the fake grass area or the oval. To make matters worse he did not tell anyone and it happened at lunch time. I cannot believe he did not tell anyone and if he did the egg may never have come up the way it did and he is very luck nothing more serious came from it. I also asked if he lost conciousness and he replied with ” what did I die ” lol. Today he is home resting with a very sore head.

  • My little girl did exactly that and didn’t tell the teacher. When I asked her “why she didn’t tell her buddy or the teacher as it happen at lunch time”. Her replay was that the teacher was eating and she didn’t want to disturb her. So I explained to her that she should tell someone if she hurt herself. I hope your boy was fine.


  • great to read


  • Teach your son to see a teacher or the office staff if anything similar happens again. If he is not a confident child tell him to take a friend to the teacher with him.


  • Hope he is ok :) Maybe have a chat explaining its important to tell an adult in case it ever happens again


  • How old is your son? It might be an idea to coach him to go to the teacher next time.


  • Poor little thing. Im surprised it didn’t come to the attention of the yard duty teacher. Hope he feels better soon.


  • im glad he is ok but i think it would be a good idea to just inform the school of what happened so at least they are aware and a incident report can be made.


  • I am glad he is alright and it seems to me boys just suck it up and go back to what they were doing..but where were the teachers supervising


  • Aww poor little thing, some kids just tough it out but he should have gone to the teacher as he could have had concussion and slipped into a coma. His teacher would have had no idea what had happened. Hope he rests up
