So today I might be taking my daughter and her friend to Pump it Up i take my daughter pretty regularly since it's a chance for her to run around and have fun. I'm kinda nervous about taking her friend though. Not because she is a bad kid or anything, she is actually really well behaved, I just have this fear of me taking someones child out and that child coming back saying I touched them inappropriately. Now I would never ever do anything like that but if some kid decided to lie on me because they were mad I'd be screwed right? who really doesn't believe a child when they make claims like that? it would be my word against theirs. What if were out and she wants something and I simply say "no" and she decides to scream murder? If I was her dad and my daughter said some man touched her I'd kick ass first, I'd only expect another dad to do the same.
So that's my worry, maybe it's irrational but it stops me from being alone with other peoples children. If she was a family member or one of my friends kids I wouldn't have a problem, they know me and I know them. I don't know this little girls parents like that. I see them, I say hi and that's about it. i can't see myself being friends with them. Anyway I'm sure I'll provide an update later today.
note: I'm horribly behind on reading blogs. I've been working on a bunch of different stuff. I'll catch up soon. Also I think I'm already bored with twitter... lol we'll see how long I keep twitting.
