Wow! Thank you so much. I learned new things from that list! Filing it away for the next time. (Loved the intact/natural celebrity list!)

So sad! Your tried though and in the end thats all you can do. Maybe next time the parents will listen to you though, so keep advocating for the intact boy! I know thats what happened to me.

You're right. All we can do is try. Thanks so much for the encouragement!

I am so sorry regarding your angst over your friend! I totally understand-- Two and a half years ago I couldn't even convince my own baby sister not to circumcise when my precious nephew was born. Of course, now she regrets it. So often I get the retort, "You don't even have children! Why would you try to tell me what to do with my son?" To me it matters not if I have no sons or 100 sons; I would never think it is okay to cut off part of the penis of a defenseless child.

 

Keep us updated about your friend. It is so hard! A co-worker to which I have grown extremely close, is due in 4 months with her second son. I'm almost positive I won't convince her either. She and I already disagree about almost everything when it comes to children: Co-sleeping, breast feeding, extended breast feeding, nurturing, etc. I still have time to try though!
 



That is so sad!  

Why do you not have children?  Are you not able to conceive, or are you not in a long-term relationship?

You have given a lot of thought to mothering issues.

 

Thank you so much for this thread.  It has been very helpful to me.
