My child isn’t faking it. Somewhere along the way, someone taught me that kids are manipulators. They will “fake” things or exaggerate them in order to get out of something.

We’ve all heard or maybe even thought, “Oh they’re just faking so they don’t have to _____,” or, “It doesn’t hurt that bad.” And while testing their world is part of growing up, this idea hurts those who aren’t testing and are just trying to survive feeling the way they do.

The internal conflict we feel as medical moms because of this can be maddening. We know what our kids are like when they think no one is watching.
