I believe I can help you with your concern
Give me a couple minutes to read over your question thoroughly, so that I can better assist you
It does appear that you great value your "baby dolls" and I do not think that your mother fully understands how strongly you are attached to them.
These are baby dolls are what you call your children and that you have cared and respected them for such a long time. You hold these with such value as anyone would for important things in our lives. We all have hobbies and personal things that we treasure. For some it is baseball cards, books, stamps, etc...but for you, these baby dolls are what you treasure and brings you peace that you provide them with a good home.
I think your mom views this as "childish" and that is why she gave them away to a younger child, but she does not understand why they are important to you and why they are a part of your identity.
If you tell her that these baby dolls are linked to who you are and your identity, then she may understand and that this is not a childish hobby, but something that you have great importance for
Also your mother gave them away without even discussing it with you, you personally felt violated that she "stole" them without talking to you about it first also hurts you and this is another reason why you are upset
Exactly! Thanks for understanding
Anytime, I definitely understand where you are coming from on this issue. I think if you tell your mother this and express this to her, she will better understand you position
Yes she thinks that it's "childish" but she needs to know that they mean a lot to me
Well tell her that, explain that this collection of baby dolls are something that you have worked on a lot for a majority of your life and that you picked them out carefully and took methodical care of them too.
And also explain that they were yours too and she did not have a right to take them without your permission, that would be like taking something of hers that she cares a lot about without telling her, it is a violation
Okay I just told my mom and my dad, and they both understand now. My dad completely agrees, and my mom at least understands.
That is great!!
My mom thought that since I am not a little kid anymore, that she could just get rid of them from my life. But they mean something to me. I'm glad that she understands now that even though I am older, I can still, at any age, have belongings that I love.
Thank you for your help.
I really appreciate it!!
