Does anyone act little around family?

I was just wondering if anyone acts little while around family who does or doesn't know about your lifestyle. Also how do you go about it?

 

I could use some ideas because I think it could be fun and cute.

I do it all the time - although i have a reputation in my family for being a bit weird and childish. I don't think my sister particularly understands but she seems to just put it down to me being strange and goes along with it :')

Sometimes when I’m super stressed I’ll just cry and that’s part of being a little. My family just puts it down to being super emotional and I don’t want any of them to know I’m in the lifestyle cause they wouldn’t understand. Not even my sister who’s a pet. Which is weird given how close the pet and littles/middles tend to be.

 

Edit: a great way to be little around family is to play with kids. That’s something they charge me with becuase I can interact with my younger cousins better than others.

I've recently decided that I am going to let some of my little side out whenever I feel it.

My friends and co-workers think I am just funny and silly, anyway. Nothing extreme, (though so far my little side isn't) I just laugh a little differently and say cutesy words, I get super happy when favorite songs come on and I can't help but dance or outwardly react. My Daddy and I were just talking about how much little I would be showing at family functions when we are together so I am happy that you brought this up. I am curious to see other's responses.

Sometimes I have my teddy bear or my fluffy blanket with me, or my family members see me coloring, watching Disney movies, showing interest in cuter things, etc. I don't think my mother finds these wrong cause my not liking this kind of cutie things when I was a child kind of made her upset at that time. And I don't think my father find these wrong cause he barely pays attention to me anyway.

Well I always was considered being childish and silly anyways, so, nobody is really bothered by it. My coworkers find it funny and cute, and my family just knows that I'm weird sometimes. My roommates don't really pay attention to it, too :p

Since I'm 44, my family would think I was a bit crazy if I did that, lol.  They do know I love cute stuffs like Hello Kitty, going to Disney World and pink, etc., but I've definitely never been little around them.  I'm also a parent who lives with my son and my sister.  My sister knows I'm a little, but abhors little stuffs like pacis and onesies (she thinks it's a degenerate lifestyle).  Obviously, my son doesn't know and I will keep it that way.  I can't even be outwardly little at home EVER.   Being little is very personal to me and is a side that I will only show to very specific people (other littles and a CG when I have one).

Nope, I don't thinn its appropriate for me as my little side is private and its not me just being childish. Its more then that.

 

I'm not really sure why people want to include their family in their kinks/lifestyles like that. Each to their own.

I typically don't act little around my family. When I do get into little space, I try to suppress it. It doesn't always work, but I try. In any case, I've learned being private about it is really kind of important anyway. I did post about this topic a while ago, if you wanna find other information about it all. But hide your little stuff away, and try not to be little around your family. That way they won't suspect anything and you won't have to explain it to them. I was mortified when my mum found my pacis, but luckily she didn't ask to many questions. Considering my parents don't like DDlg, it's best that they don't know anyway. Of course everyone's family is different so they may react differently. But still, try to keep your little self and your big self as much as possible -- this includes when you bring your caregiver to meet your family!

Yes and No. I'm childish (in the whimsy sense) but my family just says I have "Peter Pan Syndrome" and it's just part of personality. I do have tea parties with my nieces, I get on the floor and color with them, have sticker fights with them but I'm just labeled as the cool Aunt who's 'Just so darn good with the kids'.

Poppins and Pacibrat, thank you for that take on it. I don't think I really reflected much before my answer. I do feel it is private, and I like that it is something special between me and my Daddy. My "little" that shows occasionally around others is usually something brief and coming off an interaction with him out of sheer happiness. It just looks like me being blissful. So I think that is what I meant by saying I would let some of my little side out when I felt it.(But I will always dance!) I know I wasn't singled out or anything, I just felt the need to respond again so that I don't look daft.

I am happy to have been able to finally reach out more in posts and want to maintain good relationships here. I really appreciate the different perspectives.

I don’t think I could ever fully let my Little side out in front of people who didn’t already know, which means no family and not in front of most of my friends...

 

I’m the oldest of my siblings so... I’m expected to be Big pretty much all the time when I go home. Thankfully I live with a roommate, so I can hide it better.

 

Like some others said, I can let myself be a bit Little when my younger cousins are around cause I can play with them and such, but I only get to see them a few times a year.

No and I never will. Of course my partner spends time with them, but the fact that he's my Daddy doesn't need to be public knowledge. We're big believers in not exposing non-consenting parties.

My husband and I do our DDLG stuff in our apartment, and even my mom knows about it. She is getting me some toys and gear for Christmas this year. I had to talk to my mom and my husband, and they understood that this was something that kept me sane and made me feel safe.

 

My mom is still kind of unsure about it, but she sees how happy it makes me. So yeah. I act little all the time around my family. The rest of my family doesn't know, but I can keep it acting little-ish to a healthy level that my family just thinks that I'm slightly immature.

Even though I'm almost 25, my mom still treats me like a five year old. Which would probably tick off most people (and it did when I was going through my goth phase), but since discovering my little side, it's been really nice to come home to for holidays when I'm off at grad school/work/being Big 24/7.

i act little around my family alot. my sisters know im a little, my parents know i have a bottle, paci, and im ordering another. i throw fits all the time, nobody questions it really because all of my sisters do it as well, though theyre not littles. its strangely normal for me.

I've always acted little around my family, asking for stuffies talking kinda baby-ish and singing and humming around them. I'm known for being the weird child though so i don't think that they really care truthfully

Before I knew what this all was, yeah. I remember regressing since I was an actual child, but after being bullied and told to stop, I eventually did. I have moments where it slips out, sure, but those are few and far between.

I never act little (well middle for me) around my parents. They're extremely conservative and judgmental of everything that they don't understand. So, I keep all the little stuff hidden from them when they're around. The exception is my stuffies because I let my toddler nephew play with them when he comes over. 

 

I will say I think it's super cool to those who do feel comfortable enough/have families who are open minded enough to be their truly little selves around.
