To Tell or Not To Tell...
I've been thinking this weekend on this blog... and am not really sure if I'm ready to tackle such a thought... but I'm a planner. I'm not OCD in the thought that I have to have every minute of every day... but I like to have some sort of idea what my opinion is on stuff... you know...
Anyway... I'm wondering about our kids. Is there a time when we will share our lifestyle with our kids? I'm not talking about what goes on in our bedroom behind closed doors. I'm talking about... do we ever tell them about Dd? I wish I had known about this lifestyle when I was younger... don't know what I would have thought had my parents told me about it.
We do teach our children to be respectful of elders. We do teach our son to treat girls well... I plan to teach my daughter to be submissive to her husband by the way I act towards her daddy. S is teaching the boy how to treat future ladies in his life by how he treats me. I know that we teach our kids by example.... I don't plan to tell my kids about ttwd right now when they are 8 and 13.... but has anyone come to the point where you have told your children about ttwd? Or friends... anyone ever see someone struggling like we used to, floundering around like a carp on land before we found Dd?
I have a very close friend (vanilla) who I would love to share this information with. Not that I necessarily think she and hers is struggling... I just wonder sometimes how she might react. I think she would take it well because I have told her a couple of things about my past that I haven't ever shared with anyone else but S.
What are your thoughts?? I'd really appreciate them!
Have a great day!
