What else is wrong with your kids?

Yes, someone asked me that a while back. We were at a birthday party that was serving pizza. Well my Douglas is oral sensory and will not eat pizza, he gags at the thought of it. I brought along his lunch so that he would not be tortured to sit there and watch all the other children eat.

Apparently the father thought this was not the right thing to do and asked me why I had brought food, I explained that Douglas would choke on pizza and that instead of have him watch as all the other kids eat I brought along something he would eat. I do not expect others to always have on hand the kind of foods my oral sensory child would eat. I do however bring along foods that he will eat.

So this is the response I get, what else is wrong with our kids. I wanted to slap him, I wanted to cry and scream at him, what is wrong with you, and why on earth would you ask me a question like that.

I just turned and finished giving my son his food. I tried to remain calm and composed. I think I did a very good job at maintaining my composure. After all I did not want to make a big scene at someones birthday party.

My question is why do grown men at like this?

    Some people are so STUPID. I think that you handled this very well. I have a feeling I would have packed up my children and left. Caused a huge scene.

    Unbelievable! As if he and his kids are perfect. One of things SPD has taught me is to love my child even if he's not perfect. And nobody is!

  3. That man is a big fat jerk. Can't stand people like that. You're so strong and cool for reacting like that.
