Mom Confessions: I Vaccinated My Son Behind His Dad's Back

Suzanne Murray

vaccine debateIt's time for a Mom Confession -- because, let's face it, we're real mothers and sometimes it doesn't work the way the parenting books say it should.

This Week's Confession

"When my ex and I were together, we decided no vaccinations. We did the research and decided for many reasons that it wasn't the best thing. But my son is starting nursery school in the fall, and I decided to get him just a few. I didn't tell my boyfriend (his dad) -- who moved out a year ago -- even though we share custody. But my son told him that he got some shots and my ex went crazy! He's so mad. I feel guilty -- for not telling him and guilty for putting toxins in my child. Now I'm not sure I did the right thing at all."  -- Anonymous
