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.

comment Is it really that bad to get water in an infant's ear?
@DaveClarke With that tidbit, it doesn't change the fact that water + baby's ear = infection, nor does it offer a solution. Ancillary precision doesn't help solve the problem.

comment Is it really that bad to get water in an infant's ear?
@DaveClarke That's semantics. Baby gets water in the ear, baby gets an ear infection. When the baby screaming in the middle of the night and pulling at their ears, there will be little comfort in knowing that it wasn't the water.

I can't understand how anything involving vaseline and a baby's ear could be anything but bad. You'll never get it all out.

comment Can temper tantrums indicate a behavior problem?
@Beofett I missed this reply: LOLOL "You were right. BUT I WAS RIGHTER!" Of course I kid (= It sounds like you have a solid handle on it and I'm glad it's working out. Truly, tho... "normal" is really a BS adjective when talking about the human experience. Normal is eating, breathing and sleeping. Everything else is subjective.

Your characterization of "see what tv does?" is inaccurate. I'm no TV apologist, not by any stretch... (I have a television device but no television input signal. It's basically a giant monitor for a pc) but your observation is more akin to someone that's never ever had a 32oz soda from QuikTrip suddenly being able to have one. ANYONE, especially children, that never observes regular television would behave differently after being jacked in to it for a random hour of the sugary insipid things that are out there for children.
