protecting my kids(Just wanting bit of support )

Hi all, I have logged on tonight hoping to get support from others who may understand . My Little ones are adorable ....and also have indiscriminate attachment disorder and are triggered by having their photo taken. One of them already had a rough day at school and was emotionally fragile, a little anxious talk to her tracher. Today we saw their new school friend with her grandma at the library and we swapped numbers for a play date. I was feeling great about a potential new friend. I walked away for 2 minutes to borrow our books and walked back to see the Grandma taking a photo of the three girls , my two on each side, provocatively kisding her posing just as they were once taught to :-(. My heart broke. Of course she would not have known in her wildest dreams what has happened to my littlys, but I’m still enfuriated that she would photograph them, that now they had to go through that strange feeling it brings up in them, sad that the potential friendship is already tainted by my being peeved off…and also just really really annoyed at how often people think that just because my girls are so cute, that they can help themselves to capturing an image of them, for their own entertainment…and even sometimes to be used to advertise their event we have attended . Grumpy mumma tonight :-( . Wish I had a friend to have a BIG Glass of wine with tonight !!

As a mom I completely understand and would be irritated with anyone just taking a photo of my daughter without my permission (close family excluded). I’m sure it was completely innocent but maybe at your play date you can let her know a little bit about why that makes you uncomfortable. You’re looking out for your littles and in my eyes that is all that matters. She doesn’t need to know their whole story, just that it’s a trigger and you would appreciate it if she didn’t take pictures.

It’s actually pretty normal for people to take a pic of kids who seem to be enjoying themselves.
You may have to think hard about how normal things that normal people do affect the children in your care.
