I would prefer to just let the children know, by actions, what they can and can't count on me for...and leave it at that.
But as for names? Just my own name. No silliness of nicknames or "aunt."
I feel sorry for you and for many others who still suffer from this meaningless unnatural self-destructive-causing concept of "shame".~
What does my parent's sex lives have to with ANYTHING?!~
By the way, YES, YES THEY DID!~ Although that was THEIR CHOICE to wait until we were well into our 20's to start casually mentioning their sex lives, BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN EVERYONE SHOULD DO THIS, THE POINT IS NO ONE HAS TO "PARENT A CERTAIN WAY" AND JUST BECAUSE YOU MAY NOT AGREE WITH SOME ONE'S PARENTING STYLE DOES NOT MEAN THEY HAVE TO JUSTIFY IT IN ANY WAY WHAT SO EVER TO YOU OR TO ANY ONE!!!~
I'm glad that you seem to have gotten most of the point I was trying to make, with the exception of your seemingly thinly veiled "attack" directed at me.~
