Kids Who Grew Up Overprotected
My older sister and I were raised to think that almost everyone was a pedophile. I grew out of it by reading up about it. My parents donâ€™t even want me answering the doorâ€”seriously, thatâ€™s ridiculous. My sister, who is 16 years old, wonâ€™t answer the phone if itâ€™s not a number she knows. Seriously, what are they gonna do? Especially through a phone. Itâ€™s just ridiculous, and since I grew up this way I canâ€™t help but think almost every guy older than 40 is creepy.
I hate it, I can answer a door, we have the nicest neighbors surrounding us, I canâ€™t help but think that all nice old men are pedos. Subconsciously I canâ€™t help but think it, I also canâ€™t go too far from my parents because they raised me to always be within, like, 3 feet of them. I feel odd going away when with them. I wish I wasnâ€™t raised like that.
Theyâ€™re still overprotective. Itâ€™s ridiculous, the title of my post is basically saying I hate myself. I hate that subconcious part of my mind and I hate parents who do that to kids mainly.
Yeah, tell kids not to go with strangers, but donâ€™t be too protective, it can be unhealthy. If this doesnâ€™t wear off in a few years Iâ€™m gonna need some help with that problem.
