In my work as a dentist I come across some pretty crazy parenting philosophies.
30 y.o. patient comes in we hand him the clipboard…. He hands it to mom. She fills out the medical history and registration forms while the 30 y.o. plays the video games in the lobby.
In the dental/medical exam numerous cavities are found.’
Me: ” When was the last dental check up?”
Mom: ” I didn’t think is was a good idea while he was on drugs…..a waste of money”
Mom continues ” Plus I don’t think I could have afforded both”
Me: “Both of what?”
Mom: “I can’t afford dental care AND his drugs”
Me: ” You’re buying his drugs?”
Mom: ” If I didn’t he’d be out on the street.”
