well why would you be buying expensive get well gifts enough that he knows to expect it? getting sick is a common thing and you take care of them and teach them how to care for themselves, not something to award, no wonder kids are such snowflakes now
If only people could express criticism without using troll or right wing language.
Well, now you owe him another expensive “Get Well Soon” gift, and you’d better hope he doesn’t go through withdrawal from the unnecessary meds. Because you know what will happen if he does? That’s right, you’ll be on the hook for another expensive gift!!!
Since when do kids get get well soon gifts ? (other than for big cases) I feel like the more time goes by, the more we pamper and reward kids for anything and everything, I mean the other day I heard there was a ceremony for graduating middle school ? really ? why ?
Getting sick is nothing to reward but I see no harm in giving a middle school graduation ceremony. We had one. It was a great time to have one last party before the stress of high school sets in. Last time to have fun with friends before you scatter across the big high school and one last time to say farewell to the teachers you adored. Having ceremonies in school and expecting a gift just for getting sick is a big difference.
My worry is more about the doctor! Ibuprofen or paracetamol wouldn't normally make you sick so I assume it was antibiotics. Either your kid managed to fake an inflammation or this doctor writes up prescriptions without a proper checkup.
