My mother that is!My 12 year old has Celiac,he was diagnosed two years ago.My hubby and I decided early on that we would talk to Brian,explain the things he could/couldn't eat.And do our best to help him make the right choices.I can't be with him 24/7,he needs to be able to decide for himself what to eat or not to eat,(sorry couldn't help it-lol)
We only picked his food out for him for the first 4 months,while we were all learning about Celiac.Brian knows what makes him sick and what doesn't,if it is something he has never seen before he knows to either read the wrapper or ask the person who made it.
Mom doesn't seem to like the way we are handling this.She wants me to force feed him certain things and refuse to let him eat anything "fun". (Brian's way of describing how my mom wants him to eat.)
My point is this :Brian is 12,he will be 13 the begininng of Febuary.I can NOT and will NOT follow him around like you would a toddler telling him not to put things in his mouth!
So,should I continue the way I'm doing things or should I do what my mom wants and not ever give him the chance to learn what HIS body will tolerate?
