I hope that which ever of Lori Alexander’s children is the parent of this poor girl in the story decides that perhaps leaving Lori alone with the child is not good! There are times when parents must step up and protect a child from an abusive grandparent. I have seen family members do it when one of the grands drives away with the children while drinking by ending all rides with that drunk. It is the job of the parent to keep kids away from dangerous people and situations.
We’re breaking our Loritorium just to discuss this horrid situation. Why? Because Lori has bragged in her super secret chatroom about what sounds like emotionally abusing a eight year old little girl. Of course Lori did not post this in any public forum. This is strictly secretive roach nest communications. What is done in secret eventually comes to light. Here are the screen caps:
This is not how you effectively handle fears and emotions in a child! What Lori said and did qualifies as emotional abuse. What harm would it have done to have done the responsible thing, stopped walking for the roughly one or two minutes it might have taken for this child to don her jacket? In a world with predators and pedophiles lurking I’m quite surprised they kept on walking without waiting for a vulnerable child.
Even if they didn’t realize how frightening the child found the episode Lori’s words and actions are beyond inappropriate. She does not say if she comforted the girl, or allowed her to call her parents. Eight years old is still quite young. Far too young to be lectured on controlling your emotions like a robot!
Children are not little adults! They are young and learning, with imperfect control of anything, much less their own feelings. It’s your job as the adult caring for them to help them mitigate and navigate their fears of abandonment and loss of control. To comfort and meet unspoken needs, not behave in a cold cruel manner.
Whoever this child belongs to needs to start saving now for future therapy if they leave her often with Lori Alexander, toxic grandparent. This is what emotional abuse looks like.
