Message to grown men
June 10, 2011 - Kylie Saari
Please, for the love of all things Holy, stop talking to little boys while you are doing private things. Especially my little boy.
You may remember my blog about the man in town who invited my son into the individual restroom at a swimming pool and stayed in there while he put his shoes on and my kid did his business.
This week, while using another restroom at a different pool, a grown man TAKING A SHOWER said, "Hey little boy, come over here." Um, red flag much?
To my horror in hearing this story recalled, my son went a little closer, unsure how to handle refusing an adult. The man simply splashed him with the water and laughed. But this seriously concerned my young man, who is just getting old enough to be taking care of business alone.
The gentleman in question didn't do anything in else, and this time my son told me right away.
Grown men in Fairmont, why, why, why do some of you insist on these inappropriate behaviors? Even if you mean the child no harm, talking to a kid like that can just set him up for a dangerous situation in the future with someone who does mean him harm. And there are plenty, right here in Fairmont, who have a history with meaning children harm.
Since this seems a difficult concept, I am going to lay down some rules for men not related to the child. Feel free to add more in the comments:
1.) Do not talk to children while you are only partially clothed, unless there is immediate danger to you or the child. 2.) Do you offer to be present while the child is partially clothed, including using the restroom. 3.) See above.
