Re: Lord, give me strength
My oldest tried this recently when she realized hurting tummy might mean staying home from school. I really think most kids try it at some point.
I told DD that if she was staying home then she was not getting out of bed except to go to the restroom and eat and only clear liquids. No toys at all no books except school books to catch up work. Stick with it don't give in to playing.
The next day she was crying again that her stomach hurt. I reminded her that she was going to stay in bed no tv no toys and she was miraculously cured.
