Something I shouldn't have to struggle with...
Something I'm not sure I should be voicing out.
But this space is about my struggles. My conflicts. It's about talking about those subjects we can't in our society. At least not comfortably.
So here goes...
I'm struggling with what is appropriate when it comes to affection and physical touch with my kids.
Don't go calling Child Safety just yet. Hear me out.
I know what is NOT right. I will NEVER get sexual with my kids. (Even writing this makes me cringe).
The issue is partly that the line keeps moving as they grow up too.
Those are the questions I'm struggling with. I have no doubt that it is related to my abuse. But what do I do with it now? I am so concerned about doing what's right by my kids. And it is so hard in a society where different rules apply to different ages and genders. In a society where what is right for one person is not for another.
I'd love to hear what you have to say. How do you handle this? Feel free to leave a comment anonymously. And feel free to tell me if you disagree with me. This blog is about a safe place where we can talk about 'unspeakable' issues.
