Overprotective parents and dating girls

05 Mar

Well, Kim struck a nerve with her post and got those vans and basements rattling with anger. Those kids were dicks and they had parents who enabled them and let them be dicks. Those kids had parents who didn't want to betray their trust or invade their personal space. (Of course I'm not saying that every kid who is allowed privacy is going to be a rapist or an asshole, but your chances are pretty high.So many people came out screaming at Kim for "violating her daughter's privacy," for "betraying her trust," and flat out calling Kim a terrible mother. If they thought Kim was a terrible mother, then I must be a HORRIBLE mother. A few people made the distinction that her daughter is only five, but if she were 15 then it would a be a violation, blah, blah. I have been very clear in making sure my children have never even gotten the idea that they have a right to privacy in my home. They don't get to leave this house without telling me where they're going, who they're going with, and when they will be back. Good for you if you've raised a good kid who was also afforded privacy!

Snapchat is used in multiple ways, but this is how I see it being used between me and my other teen friends: for fun (ugly selfies, silly pictures, etc.), or in a way my mother would be horrified to see children use it (she calls it a “porn portal”).Now, it's known that the Huffington Post has some of the meanest, angriest, trolliest commenters around. Do you think those boys would have taken those pictures if they suspected their parents might see them?I always imagine many of them living in vans down by the river or licking Cheetos residue from their fingers while typing their raging opus in their mother's dark basements. I know I've had to pee in many a cup to get a job and I know that my emails were read and my phone conversations were monitored. Do you think they would have uploaded videos to Youtube laughing at the victim and calling her names if they thought for a second their parents would access their Youtube accounts? But I'm not surprised the Steubenville boys didn't have rules like these.Guys don’t like to be around people when they don’t think they’re at the top of their game. So just remember that his withdrawing is a result of him not wanting to appear weak or out of control and just allow him space for that.Next, make sure that you give him space Well, remember what I was saying before about guys not wanting to appear out of control or needing of help/support?
