But it is our internal triggers that are the hardest to run from, because they are…well…in us.
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!
Sure, my kids can bathe in private or close the doors to their bedrooms, but they cannot keep diaries locked away or drawers in their dressers off limits from me and the Hubs. Why do we think that some how we're betraying our precious snowflake's trust by reading her text messages or his emails? They can have an opinion and they can tell me my rules suck, but I really don't care. My job is to raise them and to keep them safe and to make sure they're not entitled assholes. ) A few weeks ago I had lunch with a friend who has a teenage daughter.
My friend was upset because her freshman daughter had been caught sending inappropriate photos to a senior boy.
We might turn to masturbation as our refuge, our stress-reliever.
Stress and anxiety ultimately come from our reactions to stressful situations or circumstances. We react with stress because of what we believe about the stressors, the significance we place on them.
