I do not understand what I have said that would make you say that about me. Do you not believe that a 5 year old can be intentionally seductive? How can you be so sure that I am wrong in my interpretation of this girl, who I see nearly every day? This has been an escalating pattern of behavior over the past few weeks. I am not saying that anything is going wrong for her, but I have a really bad gut feeling about it. I guess I should just ignore that feeling?
I really don;t understand WHAT I have done wrong here. I also don't understand what this has to do with your daughter
My post that you quoted was in response to something someone else said about you as a neighbour. Based on her
interpretation, I wouldn't want you for a neighbour.
Bad gut feelings are bad gut feelings. I have more respect for that than anything else you've said, to be honest.
What is has to do with my daughter is that I don't want my neighbours talking about her looking like a little stripper when she does her sexy poses and stuff. I don't even know where she picked that stuff up, but the odds of it being through sexual abuse are vanishingly small (she's with us pretty much 24/7).
Bad gut feelings are one thing. But, as I've said repeatedly
, I don't see the things you've posted about (aside from the little brother) as red flags of any kind and a couple of them apply directly to my dd. Therefore, I'm forced to assume that if you were my neighbour, you'd also be talking about my dd's "stripper like" behaviour and "strutting" and "miniature super model" looks (dd is also one of those kids who never really looked like a baby - she has quite an adult little face, in many ways). It creeps me out.
And, no - I do not believe that a 5 year old can be "intentionally seductive", although I know what you mean when you say it. Once again, I find the way you phrase it really offensive to the 5 year old in question.
FWIW: A guy got off
on molestation charges here years ago, because the judge felt that the victim was behaving in a provocative manner. She was three. I have serious
problems with characterizing children's behaviour in these terms.
