Aibu when I was growing up my mum and I had a mental list of people to be wary of and stay well clear of I grew up and the list grew and now I'm finding im making a mental list for my son I feel bad but safety is paramount and I won't let my son leave my hip will he grow up resenting the lack of freedom or be glad I sheltered him...... has anyone else made a mental list with there kids my boy seems to be adding people to the list that he's not comfortable around so he gets the idea of it all by himself thanks Mumsnet (oh and no your a crappy mom comments ) cheers

The heat is getting to me, clearly. That made no sense.

Who is on the list?

It's hard to read your post through lack of punctuation. I hope I've understood it properly.
Who are these people and why are you wary of them?

This list you speak of, is it a list of specific people or just types to be wary of? I am intrigued....

I know what you mean OP, we were always told to keep away from the bloke at Number 123, never told why, but those were the days you did what you were told and didn't question your parents relentlessly - he had convictions for flashing little girls, and was caught with his pants down having a hand shandy in the middle of my NDNs back garden. My parents told when I was about 28!

It depends on extent

I was brought up to be afraid of the world and now try really hard to let my kids grow up and grab it with both hands

Alisvolatpropiis Mon 19-Jun-17 21:23:14

Can you elaborate?

PatriciaHolm Mon 19-Jun-17 21:23:38

Depends on the contents of the list.

Haudyerwheesht Mon 19-Jun-17 21:27:19

Do you mean specific people? BecAuse no I don't do that - I try to give them the skills to make judgements on their own because I'm not always going to be here

Joffrey Baratheon
Cersei Lannister
Ilyn Clegane

Wtf? confused Make more sense, OP.

Funko Mon 19-Jun-17 21:30:09

Haint no no, that's the list of people to stick with a sword....

Eyes too close together type of thing?

HeteronormativeHaybales Mon 19-Jun-17 21:31:43

Um... how old is he?

KingJoffreysRestingCuntface Mon 19-Jun-17 21:32:04

Funko , er... My feelings?

Lochan Mon 19-Jun-17 21:37:19

I certainly didn't do this as a child and I don't do this as an adult.

Lists. Of people. To avoid. Like who for example?

XH used to tell me to stay away from beardy men and not allow them to hold my handbag. Heaven knows how I managed to commute to London and back unmolested before I met him.

TheAntiBoop Mon 19-Jun-17 21:48:28

So we're clean shaven men allowed to hold your handbag? Or is handbag a euphemism?

I told my dd to avoid Prince William. They're close in age and she's very lovely. He seems like a nice boy, but I didn't think the lifestyle was appropriate for my dd. I was glad when it transpired that Catherine Middleton had claimed him.

I also warned her to avoid a man who seemed too interested in little girls. That just seemed like common sense.

heateallthebuns Mon 19-Jun-17 21:50:38

I don't have such a mental list. Do you mean specific people?

sparechange Mon 19-Jun-17 21:51:21

I was told to never trust anyone with a combover
They are lying to themselves so they will lie to you...

I won't let my son leave my hip

You will when he's 18, weighs 12 stone and you're buckled with arthritis. wink

Topseyt Mon 19-Jun-17 22:01:02

Your OP made very little sense.

How old is DS? What sort of people are you making a mental note to avoid? How do you know that you are correct in your assessments? First impressions can be misleading you know, and sometimes you shouldn't judge a book by the cover etc.
