Poor upbringing you may say? I was always taught to never point my fingers or stare at anyone.Maybe not every parent imparts this basic rule of social etiquette to their children.Also this may suggest a very poor level of emotional intelligence as dejaclairevoyant said.A person having low E.Q doesn't understands how his actions could affect others.They just do it for the heck of it.
People often stare at me and i find it so uncomfortable.Especially when girls do it.It's maybe because i have a very grim expression most of the times.Also i have unusually broad shoulders if compared to the rest of my body.But that's another story.
Interesting, I have a different situation than you guys. When I appear in public places, people don't stare at me, but instead, they don't look at me, they ignore me, they avoid eye contact, they look away when I move past them, because I'm so ugly. This has done me a lot of damage on my self esteem. I feel less worthy, not accepted, lonely.
I think there is nothing wrong if someone is staring at your son. If they're staring at him, let them stare, let them mind their own business, just move past those people that are not worthy of your/his attention. If a girl is staring at your son, perhaps she even likes him.
What you should be aware of is that if you son is being ignored by his friends at school because the ignorance ruins people relationship easily.
You're worried because you don't get attention by others? My problem is that i get too much attention by others but because of all the wrong reasons! And believe me,getting no attention is far better than getting "wrong" attention.
Just wondering why people stare at others who have acne. I was at the store today with my kids, including my young teenage son who has cystic acne and is on Accutane. When we walked by these 2 young men (20s), one of them was STARING at my son as we walked by, not taking his eyes off of him. It was SO RUDE. I wanted to say, "Excuse me, why are you staring at my son??" Or, just slap him... I can understand young kids staring at someone who has a skin disorder, but an adult in their 20s really should know better.
Surely others have experienced this.. How have you dealt with it? I told my son, next time just stare back at them and maybe they'll look away
oh, and this isn't the first time I've noticed someone staring at him. But gee, you would think people (grown-ups) would have more compassion than to just stare at a kid who is already self-conscious and embarrassed about his skin.
While reading this i visualized myself as a dad with my son/daughter(having acne) being stared at in a mall.If it was my daughter and had she been old enough for male attention,i'd definitely punch that son of a _____ regardless of the reason he stared at my daughter in the first place.If it was a son then i'd leave that imbecile urchin on the plea that his mental strength is too inadequate to make proper social decisions.(He could be a pedophile,but that's another story again lol)
