One of the most frustrating things about AAL’s is when you have to deal with one that either doesn’t have children or is simply oblivious to the reality of raising a sick or chronically ill child. The questions that are often asked are just stupid. I so often want to say — go sit in a hospital and observe. Go talk to parents who have to deal with sick children on a daily basis. How does a parent answer this question? “how does it feel to hold your child down so a medical procedure can be forced on him? My goodness….other than just being a cruel question it’s unquestionably unfair. No parent wants to be put in that position. And when you follow doctor’s orders and do what you believe to be in your child’s best interest, based on the advice of a doctor, to be accused of medical torture is absurd. It is shameful what some AAL’s put parents through — all in the name of the best interest of the child.
