"Sorry, I couldn't reply directly to you for some reason... Fast answers: I'm not brainwashing, there is such a thing as a freethinker. While school may be mandatory, Homeschooling is viable option that avoids the waking up early issue.…"

"Again, what I write and what you read seem to be at odds...so I'll make this brief: I am totally okay with a few lies. We all lie, it's what holds society together. Kids are born lying, ask any parent. It's an instinct. All I care…"

"If that is what you hear then there is little point talking to you. What I said, actually, is that it depends on the parent and the kid. That specific situation. Some kids need more convincing than others. Some kids need to have alternate bad guys…"

Darlene replied to Tom M.'s discussion Wouldn't it make more sense
"You are exactly right that a marriage does not equal a relationship. But marriage is a legal, intimate partnership that conveys benefits and protections, so it is necessary. Take insurance: I'm covered under my spouse's insurance. They…"

"We always had Santa, but he was never used as a bully stick. One can have the magic of make-believe without the darker side. However, depending on the kid, sometimes parents need ever tool they can get. And very often a parent does need to avoid…"

"Wait, are you saying Santa isn't real? Then who, may I ask, drinks the beer and eats the cookies we leave out every year? My teen just fell into the pattern: really believing, then kinda-sorta, then going along with the fun. Personally, I…"
