Have you ever observed a situation where a person was paid attention to(unwanted attention, that is), by a person who is about half their age?
I happened to observe this lately, and the initial amusement at the plight and irritation of the older person gave way to a series of questions which refuse to die out. So here they are, for you to chew and respond:
1. What makes a 14 year old kid pay that kind of attention to someone twice their age?
(the only thing that struck me the most about the situation was that the kid was so young.. just 14!)
2. If a person can make someone older as nervous as the victim in this case was, imagine the plight of younger victims of this person. What are the young men around us doing? Especially to younger children of the opposite gender? Have you ever observed anything like it?
In working with child abuse cases, we used to worry about abuse of young teenagers by adults of both genders, and am yet to get over this reverse situation.
