You've GOT to be kidding!!

You've GOT to be kidding!! You put "Dr" Earnest Swine Heart on just to contrast his Nazi parenting against an intelligent woman, right? In order to make men look like schmucks, right? (I don't really think you did it intentionally, but I'm laughing all the more so at the seeming innocence of it.) The moron thinks parenting is a power struggle between bigger bullies vs smaller ("manipulative") bullies. The tragedy is that most people seem to think that life is about survival of the biggest or smartest or best bully. This Dr Swine sounds to me as though he's used to bullying smaller people and is frustrated because some are actually much smarter than he is, and he's projecting his intellectual inadequacy onto children. I know, I'm playing pop psych, but this guy is a psycho pop, IMO. I'm just name calling. Ranting. My real opinion is that we would love ourselves most intimately and authentically if we treated children and spoke to children the way we speak to ourselves: with compassionate understanding and playful, harmonious joy. Anything else is pure bullying. IMO, IME. Take it or leave it. I'm (not?) pontificating, like these so called "experts." I don't believe there is anything remotely like an "expert" in the field of love. (At least I KNOW I'm pontificating...:D) We do our best, may it be first, last, and in between: TENDER. And may my rough play with Dr Swine be forgiven. OK, Dr Swihart, I know you're my equal, too. Sorry.
