    No argument here. I think kids need to know who's in control- and it needs to not be them.

    And if the answer is "That's how it is. Women have feet like this"?

    "doing it right"? Didn't realize there was an art to reaching over the car seat and flicking your fingers.

    The point is, if they're old enough to talk, they're old enough to remember once being able to walk.

    Oh really? You've struck me as someone particularly representative of our social norms.

    I'm not surprised. Me, my main focus is studying sociology, so obviously I'm not going to share that sentiment.

    My guess is that you only think you aren't very affected. That's usually how it is.

    I made my point about female circumcision. Or how about ritual scarring? I wish I could remember the name, but there is (or was) a pastoral tribe where the males would get cuts on their forehead that went straight down to the bone. It was terribly painful and functionally useless, but you could hardly find a male that didn't want to do it.

    Circumsized penises do not keep men from peeing or fucking.
    So, yeah, about that female circumcision thing again...

    So it's all good except when functionality is altered? In that case we really wouldn't need all of our fingers.

    I agree with Disco that they aren't doing it right.

    Unless the child is actually being abused or has some kind of behavioral disorder, it works the vast majority of the time, which is why people do it.

    Yes, that's correct. If functionality isn't altered and no one is in pain, wtf, people walk around without their tonsils and appendixes every day.

    Ok, I will have a baby and tattoo it red, just to prove you wrong.

    I was a nanny first, and then a parent- as a nanny, I had to be able to be an authority figure without spanking the kids. Worked fine, so it just felt natural to keep doing it that was when I became a parent. It also just felt like many of the lessons I was teaching them, spanking them would have undermined the message. My kids are pretty well-behaved though. If I had a little punk I might change my tune.
