When it comes to parenting children with disabilities, you have to be prepared to love and support them through every moment of their lives, even the uncomfortable ones.

One woman is feeling guilty after she got her husband to ask his disabled son, who lost his eye in an accident, to start covering it up because his appearance was scaring their youngest son.

She’s 38 and married to her 46-year-old husband, who has two sons from a previous marriage. Together, they have a five-year-old named Mike. Her eldest stepson does not live with them, but her youngest stepson, 17-year-old Milo, does.

“Two years ago, Milo was in an accident, and he had to have his eye removed,” she explained.

“He refuses to wear a fake one or an eye patch for some reason and has it covered with his hair. Please don’t get me wrong; I feel bad for Milo because of his disability, and I have been nothing but accommodating to his needs. However, it is quite an unsettling sight. His eye doesn’t close fully, and it creates the illusion that he is constantly staring [and] watching us.”

While she and her husband could get over Milo’s eye, it bothered their son Mike, who easily gets nervous and uncomfortable. Mike’s been scared of Milo’s eye, and instead of explaining to Mike that Milo can’t help what his eye looks like, she asked her husband to talk to Milo to see if he’d cover it up.

When her husband tried to gently ask Milo to cover his eye, Milo became very upset and told his mom, her husband’s ex, about what happened.

Milo’s mom told her husband he needed to stop complaining and accused him of trying to drive a wedge between him and his kids.

Milo also told his older brother about what happened, and he called her husband to yell at him.
