Lost all sympathy for Foxworth's character when he lied again to the boy
6 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just want to say that while this was a fairly good episode otherwise, it was marred for me by my loss of all sympathy for Foxworth's Dr. Fowler when he played the "little innocent" bit with the boy (Radames Pera) and lied to him about his prognosis after the boy had heard the tape.

ANY child who is capable of understanding has a right to know whether they are going to have a life or not. It's THEIR LIFE, and they have a right to know if they have little time left so they can have some say in how they want to live their life. All evidence is that children are far better at handling the truth about terminal prognosis than adults think they are, and often a lot better than adults in similar situations. I have said it before, and will say it again: Adults who refuse to tell children that they will not or may not recover from a disease because they are "protecting" them are not protecting the child, they are protecting the "innocence". They want to retain the image of the child as a poor sweet little innocent rather than a brave human being dealing as best they can with a terrible truth.
