She wasn't even sort of being snarky. There is a huge difference between a difference of opinion and flaming. You did better than many in regards to rf so just feel good about that and don't worry about if someone may criticize

Yes I read the other responses. I am not debating them. I am not suggesting that this is a group of horrible people. I posted my response knowing that there will be a lot people in here who would not make the same decision. I very recently turned my son, I debated it long and hard and like most major parenting decisions it came with some uncertainty. Maybe 'flamed' was the wrong word, but I honestly expected someone to suggest alternatives to turning him, which given *my feelings* about the step I just took would feel like criticism and flaming.
