Parents! Guess What?

If you…

Intentionally give your kids anxiety either as a joke or punishment.

Fly off the handle at them for making small mistakes.

Tell them you’ll love them less if they don’t do what they’re told.

Cause them pain as a means of punishment or amusement.

Lie about things you said to avoid apologizing after the fact.

Steal or damage their belongings.

Threaten to or actually give away or harm family pets to punish them.

Refuse to give them privacy by going through their belongings or taking the door off their room, for example.

Call them names and belittle them.

Scream or swear at your kids to intimidate them.

Compare your kid to their siblings or their friends to make them seem inferior.

Invalidate their problems or blame them for being too sensitive.

Anger so quickly and so often that your kids tiptoe around your temper.

Share their personal info or things they told you in confidence with other family members or friends.

Make up stories about them behind their backs.

Punish your kids for things they have no control over, like an illness whether mental or physical.

Tell them you hope they die or encourage them to harm themselves.

Threaten to abandon them or leave them in unsafe situations.

Intentionally provoke your kids to get angry and then guilt trip them for reacting to what you said or did.

Give them the silent treatment and pretend they don’t exist.

Fail to meet your kid’s basic needs.

Refuse to let them make decisions or think for themselves, especially as they get older.

Lock them out of the house.

Subject them to affection or physical contact that they are not comfortable with and don’t consent to, even if it’s not sexual in nature.

Intentionally misgender your kids or refuse to accept their sexual orientation, or treat them poorly for coming out.


Please seek help immediately because the above behaviors can and will traumatize children and are terrible things to do to another human being.

A year ago today, @esselley and I started posting our kagehina collab, Heaven Sent. Time really flies! So, to commemorate the one-year anniversary, we’ve prepared a little sequel art/fic. Check out Essie’s fic here: The Return.

Art by me. Words by @esselley. Our collab blog is @essiecorking​!

Fun Fact of The Day: This dolphin here is actually using the puffer fish as a drug to induce a trance-like state. The skin of the puffer fish, in small amounts, is known to produce a narcotic effect. The behavior was captured by an award winning wildlife documentary producer, John Downer, and a zoologist, Rob Pilley, who states “Young dolphins are purposely experimenting with something we know to be intoxicating. After chewing it gently and passing it around, they began acting most peculiarly, hanging around with their noses at the surface as if fascinated by their own reflection.”
