Mom calls her Down’s Syndrome child a “retard” because of this

Sian has launched an online blog to express and enlighten others on what it's like to raise a child with a genetic condition like Down's.

That’s what she says about all that:

"I don't call Josh a retard all of the time. I used that word, rightly or wrongly, before he was born. I don't use it in the house very often at all. I'd say to Ollie 'stop being a retard' so I would not then not say it to Josh just because he has Down's syndrome.

People in the Down's syndrome world would think retard is the worst remark. Rightly or wrongly I would call someone a retard. It's not meant offensively; It's just a word and I've not stopped doing using it, just less."

Also she adds: "We are trying to teach him you don't need to get offended by those people as it's not worth it. We are just a bit more realistic I suppose. I would never use it as an offensive term at all and if anyone did in my presence I wouldn't like it."

Do you think it’s right or not?
