Why don’t you tell me why you don’t take photos of your kids, mom says
The father of a 7-year-old boy who was diagnosed with cancer has made headlines for taking selfies in the middle of the night, as he has for a while.
The incident caught the attention of people in Canada and across the world, as well as social media.
The boy’s father, a musician who does music videos, posted photos on his Instagram account of his son wearing a headband and playing with a microphone.
But in a follow-up post, he said he’s not taking any photos of the boy anymore.
“I’m not taking photos anymore.
I can’t take any pictures of my son anymore.
He has cancer.
We’ve decided to just stay out of his life.
I don’t want to have any part in his life,” the father wrote.
“So please do not ask me to take a photo of my kids.
He’s not my son.
I am not his mom.
I want to be his mom, not a parent.”
This is not the first time the father has had to deal with this kind of thing.
In 2013, he posted an Instagram photo of his 6-year, 10-month-old son holding a toy gun in front of a whiteboard with the caption: “I dont want my son to die.
My wife and I have to do everything we can to take care of him.”
He said he did not have time to take photos or record the video.
“We did this because we are still fighting.
We can’t let it go,” he wrote.
A similar photo was also taken on a blackboard at the family’s home in 2015, in the context of a conversation about the child’s health and treatment.
“My son is not doing any better.
We just got the news last night.
We have no idea what to do,” the dad wrote.
The father posted a message on Instagram that read: “Our son is fighting.
He just passed on.
I cant say what will happen to him.
Please dont make any comments or pictures about him.
I’m not his mother.
I just want to make sure he stays safe.”
He also thanked his family for their support.
