【衝撃】ある米国夫婦のもとに「小さな家に子供を住まわせて身勝手な親だ!」と差出人不明の手紙が届く


一方的な忠告は迷惑なだけでなく、人を精神的に傷つけることもある。


カリフォルニア州サンディエゴのミッションビーチで2人の男の子を育てているある夫婦は、一方的な忠告が記された手紙を受け取った。夫婦がフェイスブックに投稿した手紙を読んだ人々は、憤慨すると同時に異様さを感じている。

マイク(Mike)さんとケリー(Kelly)さんは2歳と4歳の男の子の両親だ。ミッションベイのベイサイドウォークで、ビーチと海の目の前で暮らしている。寝室が2部屋あるアパートに住んで9年近くになる。

しかし、そんなマイクさん一家に10月25日、夫婦の子育てを侮辱する手紙が届き、地域の人たちは彼らをかばっている。封筒には、「マイクとケリーへ(Mike and Kelli)」という宛名と、差出人の郵便番号「92109」しかタイプされていなかった。開封した夫婦は、その内容に驚いた。

「親へ

あなたたちは、自分ほど身勝手な親はいないと自覚するべきだ。親がビーチ好きなせいで、子どもたちはちっぽけなアパートの2階にある1つの寝室に閉じ込められているじゃないか。子どもには遊ぶ庭が必要だ。親に都合のいい時だけでなく、子どもが好きな時に乗れるぶらんこセットや三輪車も。知らないが、あなたたちは2人とも、こんな環境では育っていなかったんだろう。

恥を知れ」

マイクさんとケリーさんは、この手紙に自らのコメントを添えてフェイスブックに投稿した。

「この場所が本当に興味深くなった。今日、こんな手紙が郵便で届いた......。92109の地域に住む全員が親しいわけじゃない。単純な嫌がらせもある」

夫婦の友人や家族はこの投稿にすぐコメントし、子どもたちがビーチや海で遊んでいるのを見かけると擁護している。

「こんなことを言う権利が誰にあるんだ? 貧しい国や豊かな国の大都市で、子どもは小さなアパートで育ってて、何の問題もない。ビーチが遊び場だなんて恵まれてる。私だって、こんなビーチの近くの小さな家で育ちたかった」と、ある人はコメントしている。

「バカげてる。ここのビーチはアメリカにあるどの庭よりも大きくて、ずっといいと言ってやれ」、「卑怯者......。自分の住所も書いてない。よそのことに口出しする連中だ」といったコメントも寄せられている。

夫婦は、匿名の差出人が近所の人ではないかと考えている。封筒の表に書かれていた宛名のスペルが間違っていたからだ。

サンディエゴの臨床心理士、レイチェル・ミルスタイン・ゴールデンハー博士はこの手紙を分析し、一方的な忠告を受ける親に向けて次のようにアドバイスしている。

「残念なことに、親たちは何千年にわたり互いに批評し合ってきました。批判するのは簡単です。良い親になる方がずっと難しいのです。親になると、他人に自分の子育てを批評されることもあるでしょう。子育てにおいては、他人の考えを重視するのではなく、自分の家族にとっての目標と価値に基づいて考えることが重要です」

Now.. this place just got interesting. We received this in the mail today ... not everyone in 92109 is solid. Sometimes harassment comes in simple forms.

That cat is up to something, and we want no part of it.
WHOA
"What, what is this?"
"You'd rather take a picture of a straw than take one of me?
"Took a picture of baby Avery and dachshund Milo tunneled behind her to get in the picture." -Submitted By: Diane Lenier
Watch out, baby!
Who's bombing who?
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
"Oh sorry, wrong room."
"What are you reading?"
At least someone is trying to stop these from happening.
Nothing like a perfectly timed tail.
The beer is poison!
"Why are you taking pictures of butts?"
It's cool, he's the new boom mic operator.
"My turn next!"
Just really happy to be here.
At least that last guy is in the picture.
This cat's great-grandchildren are probably in this slideshow as well.
"Turn left on Sunset."
"I want to sit on the chair."
Sneak attack is underway.
Stopping inappropriate Facebook photo uploads since 2008.
How is he even doing that with his neck?
What are you doing here?
Also: "Soon"
Talk about a third wheel.
The other cat REALLY doesn't like glamour shots.
"Um, I think someone forgot my Fancy Feast."
"Do I smell fish?"
"Um, a little help?"
What is this contraption.
We're assuming that this guy was attempting to take an underwater selfie.
"Ignore me!"
He does not approve.
His night vision is perfect for interrupting hipster photo shoots.
He stood on that pinecone to get in this photo: commitment.
"Sorry, did I ruin your postcard?"
Still part of the family.
Maybe planned, still terrific.
"My husband and I were taking our border collie, Jack, out for his daily beach run and play. (This) is the photo of him being photobombed. I didn't see the dog until I saw it on the screen after the photo was taken."- Submitted By Laura Hancock

That cat takes itself way too seriously.

These cows would have been such a good background otherwise.

Just wait for it.
"Well, hello!"
"I make this look easy."
The lion doesn't even know he is posing, he's just naturally suave.
This dolphin really deserves credit for making this picture great.
"Dog park fun (Jack, Marley, and Kiana) getting their picture taken when a great dane decides to make a cameo!!" -Submitted By: Brynn Fesler
"I'm part of the family too. Why shouldn't I be in the picture?"
"Another animal is getting more attention than me!"
Maybe this was planned?
"Oh, you were taking a picture?"
Just a man, a woman, and their horse.
Even dogs can enjoy 3D.
The photographer is holding a steak.
This donkey has a place to go.
HEEYYYY!
Quick window bomb before flying away.
Just gonna sneak in here.
Cool boat, dude.
Pretty scenic, huh?
Bet he didn't see that coming.
Is this cute or just incredibly creepy?
Finally worked!
Nope, FCC cat doesn't approve of this.
Get a room.
Down here!
He knew what he was doing.
Sweet picture, dude.
Classic.
HEY!
This probably ended well.
Don't get out of the car.
Double Bomb.
That couch looks pretty comfy.
Dude, pipe down over there.
What's he planning?
When you gotta go, you gotta go.
Up close and personal.
You're never too young to get photobombed.
Cute couple.
C'mon, ditch the girl and come play with this ball.
Not just any goat bomb, but a sarcastic goat bomb.
Sup?
Cool speech, bro.
Nice costume, kid.
Cheeeeeese!
This way's better.
A fun-filled day at the park.
What are you guys up to?
Seriously?
Poor dog never even saw it coming.
BEHIND YOU!
Bears have needs, too.
Don't let the hair distract you from the bomb.
C'mon, I'm cute too.
