Come tell Grandma all about it
Imagine, if you will, that this is my daughter and her nana. Cute aren't they? A relationship between your child and your parents is one like no other. There is something about grandma/grandpa that is sacred. You feel safe and secure with them and there is nothing that can not be shared with them. Even YOUR BUSINESS. You know, like the fact that your man had his long stick in your pocketbook and you were yelling at him for putting it there. ( yeah I'm talking about sex for you slow pokies). Or how about that you were smoking a magic cigarette and started laughing hysterically afterwards. Maybe this one, you were seen kissing Santa Clause while your daddy was sleeping.
Yep your kid will go to nana and tell her all your business. Why? Because as a child she told them to tell her everything that is happening in your household. At first you may be upset about this and feel the need to chastise them about telling your business outside of the house. You may even tell them that if you keep telling the business then your going to beat their little asses till the next time they go to speak on your shit they will be running from nana/ pop's like a bat out of hell.
But WAIT! What about the message your threat is sending your kid? How about if you tell your kid that when there is a real issue like molestation, rape, or whatever occurs your child will not say a word to you or nobody else for that matter. All because you told them to shut their mouths and keep business to yourself.
Just a little something to think about the next time you get ready to beat ass, because your child told one of your "little secrets".
