Ugh sometimes my MIL just makes me so mad. I deal with her nosy and meddling ways, because well shes my MIL and I tolerate for my DH and kids. But dont tell me I'm a bad mom because I won't give my kids the flu shot. No one in my house gets it.
Simply bc when I did get it (I was prego with my second) and got my ODD one at the same time (she was 2) we BOTH ended up in the hostipal. But in the last 6 yrs we havent had one and no one has gotteb the flu.

The flu shot isnt the only way to prevent the flu, and really to many people depend on it and dont even know how to care for someone with the flu.
Grrr I just needed to vent here so I didnt tell her to get the f*** out of my business. luckily DH agrees with me about the flu shots.

I just hate how if you dont get them people assume your a bad parent or whatever... they are not needed per say.

Honestly if she went to so far as to call you a bad mother, I'd be printing out a ton of research on why the flu shot isn't a great idea, and shoving it in her face! That shit would fly..

I mean it's good your DH agrees with you, but he really needs to put his mother in her place about calling you a bad mother!  that's completely uncalled for!

No shots for us either. All I see on Fb is people complaining about having the flu. They are also the ones who were going on and on about how the shot better work.

You are right, they aren't needed, and in fact have a lot of bad side effects and could be more dangerous!  Especially since the shot is only "effective" (and I use that term loosely) up until 6months.. MAX.. (with it only being 70% affective at it's best.. which is two weeks after recieving it.. and only in healthy young adults..    in children, elderly, those with weakened immune systems... it's pretty useless and could in fact be more dangerous because it's not as effective and it weakens their immune systems!)

I read an article on our local paper the other day that said the flu shot was only 62% effective this time around so maybe pass on that info to her!
