Quoting ~Raylan's Mama~:" yeah you need to address that issue with her!!! Maybe not punch her in the face like you wish ... [snip!] ... in the face like you wish you could, but something does need to be said to her. That is wrong...I'm sorry and I hope he's ok!"I have said so many things to her. I can talk to her until I'm blue in the face. I'm going to have to step up and tell her in a matter of fact way- to leave him alone- for the 100th time or we won't be seeing her again for awhile. Because I seriously can not handle her.
Quoting ♥ axel sean n me:" thats so sad sorry to hear that. whats intensive feeding therapy if you dont mind my asking."His current feeding therapy is with an OT for 15 minutes once a week, one on one with an occupational therapist. She encourages him to touch food. Put it in his mouth if he is willing. Smell it. Put it on his hand. The thought process is getting him to touch it with his fingers and hands. Because if you can't touch it with your hand without getting grossed out, how are you ever going to be able to put it in your mouth.

Not enough to grow or gain weight, so is dependent on nutritional supplements to get his daily needs. "naww thats so sad! i hope it works for you and him!
Quoting Jennybananna:" Breaks my heart. I would just talk to her an explain why saying that to your child is not the best. I ... [snip!] ... is not the average child and maybe if you just explain the situation and what happened she can be more sensitive in the future."I have tried to be sensitive to her feelings. Explaining things gently. Provided her with several credible website links to research on her own so she could get a better understanding. I wrote her a letter. I have chatted with her on the phone after the kids are in bed. I try really, really hard to have my child be as normal as possible. Not talk about things in front of him. He gets really embarrassed by it. And he is very smart. I know she has good intentions. Or maybe wants to be the cure all? If you know what I mean. I'm not sure what the next step to take is. I'm thinking I need to be very blunt and direct with no cushioning. Because obviously what I've already done isn't enough.

And I have him in the kitchen as much as possible. I am REALLY hoping this new team can help. And he can eat better. Eating and food are such a basic life need. It will be less stressful knowing he can meet those needs himself. KWIM?
Quoting Rette Mich:" It just comes with the territory. People either fear or criticize things that they dont understand. ... [snip!] ... you want to just hide or even beg your poor child to just be normal even though you dont really feel that way. I feel you mama!"I don't want to hide. Or change who he is. I do want him to be healthy. I don't care what other people think. I have no problem ignoring strangers. I have issues with ass hole family members. Honestly, I wish they would (there are a few) disappear into the wood work and not come around. Just forget about our little family if they don't want to get educated or supportive. And not make me shoulder all the blame for things being the way they are. I hope that made sense.
