There are critics for everything – including getting treatments for one’s child. Just ask Meghan King-Edmonds.
Meghan recently revealed that her son Hart has suffered brain damage, which has resulted in her having to be away from her other children as Hart undergoes treatment in New Orleans. While any sane, normal person would completely understand that a mother would naturally go with the child receiving treatment, many internet trolls decided to criticize her for leaving her other children behind.
Instead of taking it lying down, Meghan fought back stating:
“I just looked at my Instagram and saw that a lot of you guys have a lot of comments about why did I leave my other two kids in St. Louis. When Hart had his therapy in L.A., I brought Aspen and Hayes out — my mom and a nanny did — for a week. It was pure pandemonium. Aspen and Hayes didn’t understand why I had to leave every day to be with Hart and spend literally over half the day with [him] only. They were totally knocked off their schedules. Hart was knocked off his … and he wasn’t able to focus on his therapy. Therefore, I made the very difficult decision to keep Aspen and Hayes in St. Louis while Hart and I went to New Orleans and focused on this.”
“A lot of you guys think because we have money I’m able to ship my kids all over this place with nannies, but my values are that my kids have stability and routine in their lives. … I’ve decided to put that priority first and foremost before me and Hart seeing them. They’re with their father every day. They know love. I FaceTime them every day.”
The former RHOC star ended the video with: “Take your opinions and keep them to yourself because this whole thing sucks. Did I say that enough? It sucks. There’s no right answer and we’re trudging through this the best we can. So let me be. Give me a little space.”
Watch the video that Us Weekly captured then tell us what you think:
Obviously Meghan is completely overwhelmed by trying to do what’s best for her entire family while getting Hart the therapy he needs. Anyone who has gone through a medical crisis or has a child with special needs knows how it can affect the entire family so personally I don’t think Meghan even needs to defend herself. She is obviously doing the best she can for and shouldn’t give these trolls the time of day.
Thoughts on the video? Do you think it’s best Meghan speaks out or should she ignore the drama?
