To this day I have a big case of claustrophobia due to someone thinking they were being funny by wrapping me in a blanket and not letting me up. While they laughed I suffered.
Claustrophobia is a horrible feeling. If you don’t have it you can’t know how debilitating it is.
I have a very good sense of humor, thank you very much…I love to laugh…but not at a child’s expense if it can lead to a problem for the child.
As I said, kids do plenty of things that we can laugh at but if it can hurt them in some way….that says plenty about the people who find humor in their fear. I guess you think its just fine to tickle a child until they cry too? That used to be accepted too. Now its not…its called abuse.
These are unthinking parents.
I’m not going to get into a flame throwing match here. I expressed my comment…you commented on that…I explained my reasoning. We don’t agree…so I’m done. I’ve said my piece and you said yours.
Tom…It sounds as if this child is yours. You said she closed herself in. So long as she has control…its fine. Its her doing it. It just looks to me that someone was keeping the door shut while the photo was being taken.
So to you…If she was in control…fine…my apologies to you.
I loved getting myself squashed in weird places when I was a kid. The look on her face doesn’t say “I’m scared, let me out immediately” to me. Consider the fact her butt is further away from the door than her face is. That’s just the kind of random stuff that usually give lil chilluns the giggles. She’s probably saying “Look mommy! I’m a bug on a windshield!”
@tazmom really its abuse to tickle your child till they cried i highly doubt that, that’s basically saying its bad for them to laugh, have you never laughed until you’ve cried, its not necessarily a bad thing
