Girl Scouts tell parents – your daughter doesn’t owe anyone a hug

I seem to be back in business… got a late post in yesterday in case you missed it. Al Franken cut from PBS honoring David Letterman, but Letterman’s scandal?

Now on to the Girl Scouts on instilling a moral compass and values into our little girls. Will boys/men even want to be around girls and women by the time we get done with this trip we seem to be on. A chaperone at all times apparently. Turning our kids into unfeeling automatons. –

The Girl Scouts issued a warning to parents on their website Monday asking them to think twice before forcing their daughters to hug or kiss relatives at holiday gatherings.

“Have you ever insisted, ‘Uncle just got here—go give him a big hug!’ or ‘Auntie gave you that nice toy, go give her a kiss,’ when you were worried your child might not offer affection on her own? If yes, you might want to reconsider the urge to do that in the future,” the organization posted in an article titled “Reminder: She Doesn’t Owe Anyone a Hug. Not Even at the Holidays.

“Think of it this way, telling your child that she owes someone a hug either just because she hasn’t seen this person in a while or because they gave her a gift can set the stage for her questioning whether she “owes” another person any type of physical affection when they’ve bought her dinner or done something else seemingly nice for her later in life.”

The Girl Scouts’ post encourages parents to offer their daughters ways to show gratitude that do not require physical contact, including “a smile, a high-five, or even an air kiss.”

    Girl scouts need to keep their mouth shut unless they’re talking about joe biden -a known pedophile.

    The GSA have gone the way of so many other once well meaning organizations to become little more than a political organ of the left; an incubator for the great social experiment incrementaly moving across the country like the blob that it is, consuming all in its path.

    As a survivor of both molestation and rape, I agree with the Girl Scouts. I was molested by a family member for many years of my childhood. Two other family members ‘touched’ me inappropriately. I was date-raped as a young adult. It happens far more often than anyone knows or wants to know and admit.

    If a child doesn’t want to hug or kiss a relative, why not have them shake their hand instead? I don’t think it’s ever good to over-ride a child’s inner sense of ‘hinkey.’ It might be something innocent like the relative smells funny, squeezes too hard, or lips/hands are cold. Whatever the reason, ask the child, don’t just over-ride their inner voice. Talk to them.

    What others have said about normal human contact and affection is true and very important. However, ‘bad touching’ is all too common.

      I agree with you, however I question the Girl Scouts getting into all of this. While I may agree with them on this one, they are acquiring a knack for supporting Progressive causes that are disturbing to me. Many come from families have difficulty expressing feelings and caring as well. A balance to all of this I guess. Thanks for your comment.

        The Girl Scouts shouldn’t be parenting, period. Full Stop. They are no longer the Girl Scouts I remember.

        If a child doesn’t want to hug or kiss a family member, I believe the parent(s) should find out why – not force the child to give up control over their body. Start small – a handshake first. Most of the time there is nothing untoward going on. From my experience, I would want to err on the side of caution – especially with my child.

        Fortunately, and I thank the Lord every day, they were never exposed to my abusers.

    You and I are similar Brittius, smiles. I’m not a out there kind of person—and only hug a few folks who like and deserve my worthiness (how pompus does that sound? lol) My 3 year old niece visited me in the hospital on Sat. and she goes, “Oh Aunti, mommy said not to hug you, but you look like you need a hug.” Yep, there is it, the little folks know when a person needs a hug. Now, on the other hand, my son was raised to hug and respect me, and he does. I don’t want to be like my parents who are very offstandish. But I know my limitations and know whom to hug or not.

    ANYWAYS, back to the girl scouts, that’s the not girl scouts I knew. Sadly, they are supporting things they ought not too, like Planned Parenthood. Another great post, Bunk…and sorry for you internet troubles…and apologies if my comments don’t make sense, I’m doped up pretty well and prob.. will be for the next 6 weeks, lol.

    It would seem the Muslims have had it right all along. The specter of honor killings or a girl losing an ear or a nose as punishment for an exposed ankle never mind a kiss or a hug will keep most of the girls in line. Forget the GSA’s admonitions and bring on Sharia Law!!!!

    Well, and before you hug or kiss be sure to ask “how much did it cost?” /sar 🙂

    The warning that they issued is all wrong. My parents encouraged me to show affection to family members when I was young, and you know what? That taught me humility. Coincidentally, humility is something kids these days lack…

    Reblogged this on Brittius and commented:
    Absence of such normal contact can cause children to grow up and be similar to myself, a diagnosed Asocial (not anti-social) personality. Like having a kitten and neglecting it, the kitten turns feral. My granddaughters, always give and receive hugs from me, and grandpa always gets two cheeks. Nobody else gets two cheeks. In fact, only two weeks ago at a family funeral, as things were solemn, I made it my business to give my grandsons, a pinch on the cheeks. It kind of snapped them out of things and returned them to the family unit.
    I understand what the Girl Scouts are doing but it is overkill and out of, and beyond, context of the norm, for the girls to develop into a healthy person, body, soul, and mind. The Girl Scouts, must be receiving instruction from their attorneys and trying to mitigate exposure to litigations.

      Can’t we leave it at “good touching” and “bad touching” without the Girl Scouts making the decision?


      • Brittius Says:

        Lawsuits. They’re probably the deep pockets and getting dragged into lawsuits over what they teach, so now, they teach everything is bad, and if the parents say otherwise, then the scouts are off the hook and the parents are liable for their condition. Hungry lawyers. Jackpots.
