Hey guys. My friend showed me this long post, and I feel like I just gotta share it:
why are parents so over-protective of their kids?
I am 28 year old guy with a 9 year old kid, and parents bitch about how I "neglect" my kid ever since I moved to a new neighbourhood.
I tell my son he can go wherever he wants as long as he has his cellphone and checks in once in a while, by sending a text. Most of the time he spends outside, across the street playing in the playground or playing soccer with some older kids, in the field behind the houses.
This incident happened 2 weeks ago:
>let my son play outside
>30 mins later
>some fat bitch comes over to my front porch and rings the doorbell
>"Hi, uh.. I was just wondering if you are aware that your son is across the street"
>"Uh.. yea, is there a problem?"
>"Oh no I was just assuming he went without your permission and you didn't know about it hehe"
>"oh, no it's all good. yea I let him go after breakfast, thanks though"
>"no problem, if you want I can watch him for you until you can come out"
>"nah thats okay, I am just working right now"
>"but what about your son"
>"what about him?"
>"you just let him go outside without supervision?"
>"yes, why woudn't I"
>"seems rather careless to me, what if something happens to him"
>"what do you mean?"
>"there is lots of messed up people out there if you know what I mean, someone could snatch him up"
>"highly unlikely, anyway I gotta get back to work"
>"I think you shouldn't let him do that it's dangerous"
>"thanks for your opinion, bye"
The moms kept dropping hints that I am neglectful, bad parent, not responsible etc. I just ignored them all until today.I let my son out to play with his friends like usual and went to work( work from home). 1 hour later I get a knock on the door.
>open the door, inb4 the dinosaur
>4 of the moms are there standing, one is holding my kid by the shoulder
>I ask what's going on
>they all start yelling at me about how I need to watch my kid and stop neglecting and shit
>tell them it's none of their fucking business how I raise my kid
>they start screaming at me
>my best friend who was staying over for few days heard the yelling and comes down to see whats going on
>tell my son to go inside the house
>he starts to walk towards the door, but fat bitch is holding him back by the shoulder
>"nobody is going anywhere until we sort this out"
>friend pulls phone, start recording
>tell him again to go inside my house
>bitch still won't let him
>we all start arguing while my friend is recording
>pull out the phone and call the police right in front of them
>tell the 911 operator someone is abducting my child
>they all start screaming at me
>tell me they'll report me for neglect and how it's 1 against 4 and I am gonna lose etc. etc.
> police arrives
>friend shows the video to the cops
>moms start freaking out and saying how I "photo-shopped that, its isn't real"
>all 4 of them get arrested
>have to go down to the police station in 2 hours with my lawyer
Messed up, right?
