“SOURCE CLAIMS JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND
JESSICA BIEL WILL NOT VACCINATE THEIR SON”
That’s been the big headline for miles and miles – on In Touch Weekly and other media outlets – and you’ve probably seen the debate rage all over the internet.
The only thing I will say about whether or not baby Silas should be vaccinated is that I don’t understand why the internet believes they have the right to weigh in.
The info comes leaked from a “friend.” The friend claims Jessica won’t have their son vaccinated because she thinks it may cause complications, and that JT supports her decision. The statement claims this friend hopes they change their minds.
It’s hard enough being a mother. We second-guess ourselves and our every decision. The more we care, the more we lose sleep over every choice we make – from vaccinations to car seats to preschools. I can’t imagine how hard it would be to be a mother in the spotlight – who has the entire internet weighing in on her decisions. I mean, we all hate when we’re judged. Think about the last time the Mother-in-law tried to comment on your parenting!
We all try to do our best.
We all make the decisions for our children with their best interests in mind. None of us has all the right answers. None of us can even be 100 per cent sure our decisions are right – only that they’re right for us.
I definitely have my feelings on the vaccination debate. Very strong feelings. But I’ll spare you having to hear them because I’m not a doctor and I have no business telling you what to do or push my educated beliefs on you – because for all my investigation and sleepless nights, my decision is right for my family, and that’s all I have to worry about!
