comment Is putting a 9-year-old to bed early abusive?
@deworde I really thought that this was going to be a -1 factory for me. But I guess it's my job to be the hardass around here and sometimes people like it (=

comment Is putting a 9-year-old to bed early abusive?
"It dilutes the impact of the word, and in my opinion dishonors truly abused children." simply cannot be said enough.

comment Can a 17-month old really appreciate humour/irony?
Do it like "Mr Glubbles HATES folding diapers and laundry!" or how about "Mr Glubbles HATES picking up cheerios from the floor all day!" "Mr Floob HATES TRAFFIC on the way to work!" or maybe not. Hitting too close to home maybe.

comment The noise of his children playing makes a parent tired and glad to leave for work
"Instead of attempting to be a good playmate to my son and make him happy, I take him along when I do what makes me happy" That's really good stuff right there.

comment What harm is porn?
I follow that up with the explanation that porn winds up being part of the 'package deal' with abusers. That nobody can point to porn and go "there it is, the problem, right there" with any certainty.

comment What harm is porn?
@AnsisMalins I think that's kinda his point . . . porn is NOT special, that it's like any other overindulged consumerist behaviour; that a child can't really distinguish between the depiction and the real world.

comment 3 year old gets bullied all the time
I'm glad to hear things went well and are improving, altho I wouldn't count on the best friends part. last bit of advice: Plan for the worst but hope for the best. In other words, be prepared to take a stand and LEAVE IMMEDIATELY if things take a turn for the worst. I hope things work out for you and good luck with your baby.

I'm curious what the result was here. I, like others I'm sure, I am interested in the outcome of the next social gathering. Please keep us up to date.

comment 3 year old gets bullied all the time
@DaveClarke The spirit of your comment is well intentioned, and I agree on the effect it would have. But if a person was reasonable enough to agree to watch the video, they wouldn't be a bully to begin with. Such a suggestion would more likely incite anger and probably a tirade and exit than an effective rehabilitation.
