Does this make me a bad mother for laughing?

Earlier today, my son 18 and daughter 17 were playing soccer in the backyard and my daughter when to kick the ball and ended it hitting it right into where it counts on my son (the nads). My son had been talking a big game and making fun of my daughter for being just a weak girl and not being able to beat him at any sports. I felt bad for my daughter because he is usually better at sports than her, but when this happened its like the tables were turned and he was on the ground holding himself in pain. I felt bad for him because I know that had to hurt ALOT, but for some reason I just couldnt stop giggling. Boys just look funny after theyve been hit where it hurts dont they?

Does this make me a bad mother? for giggling at my sons "particular" injury? Looking for other mothers opinions that may have dealt with a son going through an injury to the nads.

  • In my opinion only, I think it was completely wrong for you to laugh at your son getting hurt that way. I don't care what he was doing to your daughter, he is still your son and you should apologize to him if he noticed you giggling. Us as women, only know what it feels like to give birth, but we have no idea how it feels to get kicked in the "nads". Yes, that was very very wrong.

  • I think it depends on if the injury was intentional or not. My daughter is an aggressive athlete but I would never encourage hurting a boy or girl for sport..

  • I think sometimes a person just can't help themselves. It may not be the best time to laugh at a given situation but for some strange reason you just do. I've done it in various situations and I really don't think it makes you a bad mother because something struck your funny bone.
