Wow that's horrible chunkydunks, I didn't realise kids could be so cruel! I do think it comes down to the parents though. My eldest 3 daughters are all at school and know not to judge, bully or bad mouth people. They know that if I found out they'd been saying hurtful things then there would be severe consequences!
When DD1 was starting school she used to hide when she was pricking her finger and using her insulin pump, she thought kids wouldn't like her because she has diabetes. Slowly we taught her that kids don't care as long as she doesn't. It's a way of life for her and we are super proud. Now the kid wears her pump proudly, answers kids questions about it and doesn't look when people are staring at her pump.
Thanks @BabyG4. I still have lovely curls today yay. I like having my hair done nice but sometimes I just can't be bothered!
It's good that your daughter is now more relaxed around others about her insulin pump, that's really good to hear. I'm hoping that we can raise our kids to be respectful of others and their differences. I'm also hoping that the way we raise our kids can help them deal with how others will see their family.
On this day last year I was getting my 20w scan. Hope bubba scans aren't too far off for everyone xx

DD2 went to school with a boy last year who had 2 mothers. She came home and proudly announced that you don't have to live with a mum and a dad, that it's ok to have 2 mums - End of story! I don't think it needs to have any other explanation and by her friend proudly saying he has 2 mums, all the kids are happy with that.
@Mamasupial when I did a later evening test it would always be a negative. Trusty Google says doing it to late can give a wrong result of you've had to much fluid during the day? Don't know if that's right or not!!
Can't wait to start seeing people get those big strong BFP's, exciting times ahead for us all
A friend at work has 2 little kids and she has brought them up this way and it's amazing. She comes from a very strict Lebanese family and her kids often tell of their uncle and cousins for saying homophobic things hehe.
Everyone has different family structures. I think often the kids don't even care, it's what they hear from their parents unfortunately.
But oh well, can't control what other people do. We can only teach our kids how to handle situations in life
