That was the feel I was getting so for this situation I agree with the OP.
That said I would be pretty sad and hurt if I wasn't...

I've had to do just that with each of my three kids when they were toddlers. I don't see how it's even slightly wrong or judgment worthy.
I'm pretty sure it will have a pro-vaccine slant and vaccinating being best will be the outcome. I'd love to be wrong and it would be great if they would actually delve into the issue with out a serious bias for vaccination (but I'm pretty sure when they asked someone to be on the show who is against vaccines they [a producer I assume] straight up told him they would not be siding with him).

Being close enough to hear and see what's going on with a three year old is not hovering. I think a three year old needs to be supervised at the park but that doesn't mean you have to hover and jump in at the slightest thing, there is a happy medium.
There really are no pros to infant/child non consensual circumcision, there's just not. It's all pain no gain for the baby/child. I know that's not helpful at all but any pros that are tossed around aren't factual.
There's lots of cons in the link/resources at the top of this forum.
