Inspired in part by Pramrider's earlier two posts, I had a question of my own about what AB/DLs might do if they were parents in the following situation:
What would you, as an AB/DL parent, do if your child came to you confessing that they had a desire to wear diapers? Alternatively, what would you do if you discovered diapers they had hidden, but they didn't know you had discovered them? What about if you caught them wearing a diaper?
Since it was near-unanimous in Pramrider's thread on the matter, we can probably assume the child in question is unaware of their parent's AB/DL tendencies.
Would you confide your own AB/DL side in this instance, to help them understand? Would you try to discourage them? Encourage them? Would you allow them to wear diapers? Forbid it?
For me, I can only guess (of course), having no kids. I had a story idea that I've yet to write based on this prospect. Depending on the nature of the scenario, I like to think I'd allow them to have diapers, but conditionally. If they did their chores/homework/etc, and were otherwise responsibility free, they could do so. They could be taken away as punishment, as well. Forbidding diapers seems cruel, especially when I could sympathize with their position to a large degree. But at the same time, letting them go whole hog would seem a bad idea, too. To me, the way to go feels like it should be to let them know they aren't doing anything wrong, but at the same time make sure they understand this kind of thing should be kept private.
But that's just my attempt to form an opinion. I could be wrong.
