You are pushing your fears onto your poor children!
So my friend is one of those super paranoid annoying types. Outside of our difference in parenting styles, we get along great. We both know we disagree about things, so nothing is a shock.
ANYWAY, I told her a couple years ago that she was too paranoid. She brings them to the doctor/ER for every little thing, she blows things way out of proportion, etc. (She started to do this to my kids and I had to stop her).
Well, now her daughter is getting in trouble at school for the same thing. The teachers say every time she comes in and something is wrong with her, she blows it way out of proportion. She sprained her ankle and is walking like her foot fell off. She recently got a cold, and to "prevent her from losing her voice" she refused to speak. Things like this - ALL the time. And her mother has the audacity to scold her for acting this way - when she created this.
What a mess.
