Why are they laying into Fanjo here?

What a horrible thread poor mum and her little girl. Glad my friends are more tolerant than poster. Can't be arsed to read it all.

It's depressingly familiar.

Because she has shown some of them up, her posts have highlighted their lack of empathy.

They are being attacking in their defensive strategies...

Wrong on so many levels

I read it <sigh>.

AmberLeaf Mon 06-May-13 14:31:37

Dailynamechanger, so so true what you said on the thread about human nature.

I was really nodding to your post.

Not sure why I thought this was AIBU confused I'm reporting my post.

i posted on that thread, said I thought the OP's friendship was a little friendship if willing to chuck in the towel because of the behaviour of the child (sn or not)
I was told I was out of order.. gave up in the end
Apparently the op's son shouldnt be subjected to screaming

Sad and this just goes to show the lack of awareness in our society

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Mon 06-May-13 23:34:14

I just saw this.

I don't know why it happens..when I mention my DD I am always accused of trying to guilt trip people.. I think SN makes people feel uncomfortable.

Am now really wondering what cote's post says.

Am tempted to leave MN again after being called all sorts...DD is being really challenging just now (and choked and almost died today, not kidding) so extra grief is not required. sad

I prob won't leave though as this nice wee thread has restored faith a little wink

AmberLeaf Mon 06-May-13 23:54:20

Cotes post wasn't that bad, she just asked Starlight why she didn't say something on the thread [she did] and that she was BU to post a thread about a thread.

I hope she won't mind me writing that, thought it was better to clear that up than have you think the worst.

Deffo don't leave Fanjo! hope your DD [and you] are ok after today.

I thought that must have been Cote's post.

DD is thankfully fine thanks to the wonderful guy who was working with her on signing when she choked on a smartie, he did heimlich manoeuvre while I just froze!

I am also OK and feeling much better after reading these posts thanks all round smile

Don't go, Fanjo.

My post was as Amber said (thanks, Amber). I had it removed when I realised that this is the SN board and understood the purpose of the thread.

I didn't read all of that thread, btw. Has the OP said that the girl in question has SN?

CoteDAzur Tue 07-May-13 08:10:23

Fanjo, that sounds awful. I hope your DD wasn't badly affected by the experience.

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Tue 07-May-13 08:10:48


I and several others said it sounded possible.

I then said if it was possible then it wasnt great to call the child a dreadful brat.


Noone said the OP should be forced to see the girl either but it was assumed people were saying that.

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Tue 07-May-13 08:12:03

DD seems fine and happy. .she had bad reflux as a baby and toddler so being sick doesn't faze her, thankfully smile

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Tue 07-May-13 08:12:41

Was more stressful for me and her worker I think!

2old2beamum Tue 07-May-13 08:15:05

Hold your head up high Fanjo you are so much better than them!

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Tue 07-May-13 08:30:10

Aw thanks smile

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Tue 07-May-13 08:31:08
