Let’s say that these parents are right andyoung snowflake hereisn’t a sex offender in training. They aren’t, but like I said, let’s pretend.
In their world, grabbing a couple girls’ asses and boobs, unhooking the bra of another, licking yet another’s neck and tickling one more on the stomach all without their permission aren’t serious things. Even if that’s true and all it is is “numskull friendliness” and like I said that’s a pretty big if, I must respectfully take issue with mommy dearest.
“A 12-year-old boy does not do these things to sexually gratify himself,” she said.
For somebody who’s raised a 12-year-old boy, you sure don’t know much about 12-year-old boys, do you? And good on you for having him do his own laundry. I figure that’s a pretty safe assumption because if you did it, believe me, you’d know from gratification. Having known a lot of 12-year-old boys and having been one myself for a year or so, I feel pretty confident saying that for most of us, that’s right around the time we started trying to get a handle on the concept if you will.
but again, even if you honestly believe that 12-year-olds don’t do such things, you’re still not explaining the stuff he’s done since. He’s 14 now, and you don’t have to be head greeter down at the Wal-Mart to know that you’re smack dab in the middle of prime hormone season here.
There’s a fine line between flirting and being the creepy guy with rope and handcuffs in the trunk of your car. if I were you, I’d be careful with this kid, real careful. He needs to learn boundaries, and quick. If he doesn’t, that registry you’re trying to keep him off of now is going to be his home soon enough when something a lot more serious happens, and nobody wants that.
