Sorry to keep bothering you but I don't think you are getting the first part of my message. I'm really scared because my mom found out a while ago that I had a Tumblr (rp blog) and she flipped and made me give her my information and then she changed the login one morning. The other day she was asking if I remade a Tumblr or anything and I said no (I already had my current account) but I'm super scared because I don't want her to find out anything because I love Tumblr pls help idk what to do
Ahhhh I gotcha now!! <333
I would try to have an honest talk with her, kiddo. Tell your mom that you don’t give out ANY personal info and that there’s no way you could ever be tracked down or anything like that.
A lot of the time fear comes from people not understanding stuff, and that’s what it sounds like is happening here. There’s also a huge generational gap going on, too.
We’ve grown up online. It’s as important to us as TV was to our parents. We know how to use it and how to stay safe, and we’re often better at it than older people just because we grew up with it so it’s like a second nature.
Try to explain this to her, and tell her how much it means to you. You don’t have to tell her you made another account, but try to use her hijacking your old one as a starting place for this conversation. I know it might be scary, but I think if you show her how mature you are by asking to discuss it, you have a good chance at getting her to see and understand your POV.
Good luck, bby! Please keep me updated? <333
