I feel if I was in any horror situation I would be so safe and calm because with any other person they would be screaming and crying but if he and I were trapped in a building surrounded by ravenous mutants he would just be deadpan like “they are so rude I can’t believe this. Let’s blow this Popsicle stand.”
stop the phrase “tattle-tale”. stop indirectly telling kids that if they speak up about someone that’s bothering them, they’re doing something bad. stop contributing to the culture of abuse.
one time when i was like 10 years old or something, there was this kid who would constantly harass me. and every single time he would do anything the teacher would tell me to “stop being such a tattle tale” and brush me off.
she even brushed me off the time the kid lifted my skirt up and groped my ass bc i was just “overreacting” so any time anyone did shit like that to me i’d just brush it off bc i was such a good teachers pet i didnt want to bother any one so yeah
teaching kids that being a tattle tale is bad and can lead up to them ignoring abusive assholes until they’re in their 20s

also kids shouldnt be scared of their parents. theres a difference between “im not gonna do this bad thing because i respect my parents and i dont want to disappoint them” and “im not gonna do this bad thing because im scared of what my parents will do to me if i do”
