Disclaimer: As usual, what is written below is my own personal opinion, and may vary from yours. It doesn’t mean to say that either is correct or incorrect, that’s what makes us all Humans.
I’ve been lied to many times, mainly by my father.
Many Families will try to control and manipulate their relatives all their lives.
Too many are way
Because they are
Families will put doubts into their Relatives heads, and that is:
My father did until he died, I was 46.
Honestly, once someone reaches 16, they should be treated like a
Able to make their own decisions, whether good or bad.
An episode of McLeods Dauggters is a perfect example of “Parents” and “Adults” interfering.
I get so annoyed when parents guilt their offspring into doing what they want.
Parents can be toxic people at times.
The below photo is an episode of Blue Heelers, which had 2 interesting storylines.
I grew up in times, where men ruled.
1970, when I knew I was a G U R L, I didn’t feel comfortable or even safe enough to admit to my parents.
Our parents should allow us to explore and see what is out there, without being in fear of being rejected.
The only time, I believe Parents can and should interfere in their Offspring’s lives, is when any criminal activity is involved.
Offspring should be able to choose their friends, but:
Parents should insist on meeting them, either via video chat,
DEMANDING WRITTEN, SIGNED AGREEMENTS.
As someone who has been hurt verbally in the past, I always provide written agreements, & copies of my photo identification too.
To any parents reading this:
Please listen to your offspring and allow them to explore their lives, & if they show interest in something
Please accept that.
Children know at a young age, who they are, this includes their gender identity and sexual orientation too.
