You obviously have never raised a child because reasons to make up lies comes up far too often. Or when passing roadkill do you stop and take the time
to explain death to a 5 year old? How about when your 4 year old walks in on you being intimate? Do you take the time to explain it all in detail and
be honest about what mommy and daddy are doing?
Lying to your kids is sadly part of raising one. Try it.
In a perfect world, mom should not have to make up any lies to tell her child but this is not a perfect world and if that is the toughest question
that little girl has ever posed mom in her 7 thus years, they need a freaking show!
As far as making oral sex awkward in the future, um yeah. Let me see - 7 year old is confused about man with something in his mouth and mom blows it
off. vs waiting around for cops to make a scene. Which one do you honestly think is going to leave a lasting memory? Do you remember every inane thing
you asked your parents about? The answer is no because if you did, it would not have happened.
Congrats on never having a pet die before you were old enough for that talk.
Mom could have easily diffused the situation and removed the little girl without it having to leave any lasting memory at all. Unless there is some
fixation on oral sex already would be indicative of a far great problem at home.
Seriously, do you think that calling the cops helped this little girl NOT be traumatized by this more than mom making up something and leaving would
Sometimes as a parent, you have to make a tough call and decide what is more important. Standing up loudly for something you feel is wrong or
considering the net effect on your child of the actions you decide to take?
Okay, yes, "exposed to sexuality" was way the wrong way to put it. But if you'll actually stop and THINK, you'll understand what I meant.
Because he was SUCKING ON AN ARTIFICIAL PENIS.

Again, that falls to your mindset.

Either you have never seen how unlike a penis most dildos actually look or your penis should be in a museum.
