your loud, vocal annoyance and disgust towards children is not neutral just because you don’t have/plan on having children. you are still adding to and upholding a culture that allows child abuse to happen. it doesn’t matter if this is your intent or not.
children cannot communicate very well, they don’t know that adults can be wrong, and they don’t understand concepts like abuse. all they know is that they’re hurt and upset, and when this happens their behavior changes. their cries for help are written off, they’re just “crybabies” or “acting out.” abusers know this and use it to their advantage.
june - what is the best thing you’ve ever experienced?
this summer, when i was working as a counselor, i helped a girl through an anxiety attack complete with extreme hyperventilation. i sat with her for hours into the night and helped coach her breathing back to normal, then i gave her my ipod bc she said listening to wicked might help, and she asked me to sing to her a little bit, then i got out my big array of coloured pens and doodled with her, until she was calm enough that i could send her off to bed. knowing that i could be of so much use to someone was incredible. being able to make her happier and calmer just by doing all those little things was just really enlightening as to the impact you can have on someone through tiny acts of kindness and care.
