Dear Jason Mix Mornings,
My daughter has a lot of health issues. She’s almost died on us numerous times over the years. I have been her advocate since I was pregnant with her. She survived a severe life threatening birth defect. She just turned 12 and I got on her “mychart” (electronic way to get her test results, look over her medical history and many other great convenient features.) I was shocked to find that at 12 they deny parents access to their child’s medical records. TWELVE! I know doctors feel a child should be able to come to them and be open and honest with out a parent but at 12 this is just absurd to me. I still need to protect her. I’m livid. Do you agree that 12 is too young to allow them such rights and to deny me her records online?
