Re: "Bribing" for affection - too sensitive, or just let it go?

My children are able to freely give affection, and I will say something to anyone that "insists" when my child has said no/refuses/or otherwise indicates that they don't wish to be affectionate.

I am a victim of sexual abuse, and not being allowed to say "no" to an adult when it came to affection contributed to my feelings that other adults would think what this one adult did was okay and that I would get in trouble.
