I will never embarrass you on purpose

I recently heard a mother of a young girl openly announce to the world that she was going to be spending time alone with the daughter and her daughter’s friends, and it was her intention to embarrass the girl as much as possible and in as many ways as possible. She was actually going to count the number of times her daughter was fully embarrassed.

That left me flummoxed and flabbergasted.

I’m announcing to the world right here and now that I will never, ever, purposefully embarrass any one of you, most especially my very own children.

I discussed this with my 14yo daughter and she couldn’t even understand the concept of why anyone would want to do this. I tried explaining peer pressure and bullying to her and her always-unschooled mind couldn’t even comprehend this type of living.

Did you hear that??? She couldn’t even comprehend peer pressure and bullying, and the idea of a parent purposefully embarrassing her own child confused her greatly. Isn’t this a better way of being?

Make this promise today: Never embarrass your children on purpose.
