I had to say something
: Well a Dr might not get their "kicks off" by looking at a childs genitals without permission, but it certainly seems that some parents and Dr's who get a lot out of power and control.
If a child says NO then it's NO.
One needs to think about the emotional harm that can do to a kids head.
A "peek" isn't worth the potential trauma. My goodness most grown people don't like their privates being looked at. Sometimes I think Dr's don't even see children as HUMAN BEINGS but rather as "specimins" and "property".
This whole thread make me very angry and shakes something deep inside my soul!
Are we and our children to disrobe and expose ourselves to any "white coat" that wants to see our pevlic area and then - if we refuse then "we have something to hide". Any decent Dr. would put a human beings psychological needs above a "need to peak", my goodness.
I have a three year old daughter and she's fine if she gets a change and doesn't mind a surface wipe, BUT if she gets a little poo in and around her vaginal area tha requires a good q-tip or wipe cleaning she goes crazy,she slaps your hands, squeezes her legs together, rolls over, screams and tries to get away, she clearly feels violated so after a few of these "episodes" it became very clear to my husband and I that it was very emotionally perhaps spiritually damaging to her- so we found a solution - WHEN THAT HAPPENS IT IS TIME FOR A BATH- LET THE WATER CLEAN HER. ALLOW HER SOME RIGHTS! We love her, should we say to her and ourselves :" LOOK KID THIS IS HOW IT IS, AND YOU ARE JUST GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE IT". That will only foster anger, rebellion, distrust, betrayal and come between us. We love her. We do not wish to control her.
Anyone who feels that need really needs to look at themselves and their true motivation.
