    That sounds scary, sorry you had to go through that. I think you did ABSOLUTELY the right thing. I also think a 13 does not need to be writing banners like that. But that's just me. Glad everything worked out, hopefully he will learn from it....And just remember, there are plenty of other things he will be hating you for in the near future....:D

    Yes, it really does suck.

    What a frightening experience. So sorry you all had to go through this.

    Danny spent too many years keeping things locked up inside, and it was making him very depressed. We spent some months at therapy and we found that if he is able to express his feelings on paper he gets them out and then goes on. He is allowed to write whatever he feels - but this one is not going on the fridge!

    So sorry you had to go through that, I think you did the right thing if he was out of control. Talk to him into changing his banner to ""diabetes f***ing sucks":cwds:

    Diabetes sucks and so does being a parent sometimes! You did what you had to do, end of story. In my book you get parent of the day award! Good job!!

    You did what you had to do - it doesn't matter if he hates you right now - he'll get over it (it sure hurts though).

    That must have been pretty scary for you - I'm sorry you had to go through that.

    I'm sorry. You did the right thing, no doubt. He's embarassed and taking it out on you.

    At a later date, I might change the policy about him being able to write whatever he wants on banners. It's one thing to write "mom effing sucks" and keep it in his personal diary where no one reads. But it really is disrespectful to you to make a banner saying that. He can get his feelings out in a more respectful manner or get them out privately.

    Hugs. That must have been so scary.

    You know I come on here for an understanding shoulder and I get crap about my son making a swear word banner.

    I'm through.

    I didn't see your original post (stupid internet kept going down) but I get the general idea of what happened.. I don't see anyone giving you crap though, I'm sorry you feel that way. I see concern for you that your son was disrespecting you.. Whatever happened, I hope everyone is alright.

    My 7.5 year old told me today that since she knows the word (she was talking about a swear) she should be able to say it..lol

    I'm not seeing anything in this thread that would warrant this response.

    Diabetes is hard. It's hard on parents, it's hard on kids. In order to keep our kids safe we sometimes have to do things that they resent - and not just with respect to the diabetes. They will express that resentment.

    It is your call about how far you would let "freedom of expression" go in your household - but note that there are differing views about this, and that people are free to express those different views.

    Thank you for this, Wilf. Maybe a post or two were deleted, but I didn't see anything unusual.:confused:

    That, and the original post was edited to take out the gist of what happened.

    If it has something to do with my response, I sincerely apologize, it was not my intention to make you feel bad or pass judgement to you or your son.

    I think she's referring to my post. I don't think any posts were removed.

    I'm sorry if I offended you. I was trying to offer support as well as stand up for you a little bit. I felt badly that you were being treated poorly for what I thought was making a brave and obviously unpopular decision. It absolutely sucks to make a decision that we know will make our kids furious. Sucks, and I didn't want you to be made to feel more guilty for it than you already did.

    I'm sorry. I tried to PM you to apologize personally, but you apparently have them turned off. :(

    You definitely did the right thing! As a mother, you made the choice to protect his health even though you knew it would upset him. What else can we do, as parents? I'm sorry you had to go through that, but I'm sure he'll come around and realize you made that call because you love him so much!
