Traumatized 20 year old parent
When my girlfriend and I thought it was a good idea to pass on the condom, we didn't realize that we would have a beautiful baby boy. 9 months later, I was a parent at 21.
One of my earliest experiences with my son will forever haunt me. We had our boy circumcised like everyone else here does in the US. The nurse didn't let me go with them so I could comfort my son. They really didn't want me to go. I gave up.
Around 45 minutes later they returned him to me screaming like I had never heard a person scream before. I ran over and just started cradling him. The woman said that it is normal for him to cry for a few hours. She assured me that he won't remember it.
A baby is in real agony if he's screaming like that. When my brother was little the doctor didn't care if we were there when he got his first filling. I did some research and was horrified. He torture baby boys. My son was in some of the worst pain a person could probobly ever feel and I didn't protect him.
