@cabbey- I think you were overly optimistic about the perceived value of strong references among parenting.stackexchange users.

One thing you should consider is confirmation bias. When we believe something to be true, we tend to notice the confirming evidence more than the disconfirming evidence. In this case, that might equate to noting disrespectful behavior from children if you know they are not spanked, and failing to note it in children who are. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias

comment How can I help my child develop social intelligence?
Sports activities (or any group activity) just gets them used to learning teamwork and leadership. Working together for a common goal is a good social skill. With different age groups, they have an opportunity to interact with a variety of levels of emotional control and intelligence.

comment What are the objective arguments against immunizations for infants and children?
I will remove the downvote if you remove the sentence "There is no scientific research showing that vaccines are not harmful". This is simply not a reasonable sentence: you cannot prove that something is completely harmless, and there is plenty of research into potential side effects.
