yes, that's exactly what it means! (good guess!) I shouldn't use family jargon in a public forum, but you know how it is -- sometimes words/phrases have been in use in your family for so long that you forget it's not a real word/phrase!
I don't see tcs'ers taking over, except in that there have been many questions asked of them and threads started about how pushy they are. They're not to blame for those threads -- they didn't start them. People post about problems, other people answer from their own experience, tcs or otherwise. I'm fairly sure that when questioners say "I'm not interested in a tcs answer" that they don't get one. (I haven't actually checked to see that this is true, it's just my impression.)
And I fail to see why ANYONE would be hurt or attacked by a suggestion that they don't find useful. The only people I"ve seen attacked have been the tcs'ers, who have generally responded with respectful disagreement. Please, try to look at it from another point of view:
Say that we're on a mainstream parenting board. I post a question about sleep deprivation, saying that I'm having a terrible time at night. You, who practice AP, suggest that I consider bringing my baby into my bed, citing Sears and others and your own good experience with the family bed. Perhaps you add a link to an AP site in case I'd like more info.
Should I feel hurt or attacked? Should I insult you and demand that you leave the forum? Or should I take your suggestion or not, and leave it at that?
I like having new parenting techniques brought up, even when I don't choose to employ them. It doesn't threaten the way I do things, it stretches my mind and allows me to revisit my old assumptions. Geez, it's not like someone's coming to the Gentle Discipline forum and saying "Spanking is the only way! God wants you to spank! Spankspankspank!" Even I would admit that's out of line.
The only reason tcs seems to have taken over the boards at the moment is that some people, primarily jw, have made it their crusade to belittle and attack the people who suggest it. And I don't understand THAT at all, because I've always found jw to be logical, tactful, and respectful before, even when dealing with touchy subjects. She's the last person I'd expect this kind of venom from -- but maybe I'm just not "hearing" the tone of voice she's intending to project.
I s'pose I'm just leery of ANY censorship, when it's so easy to just scroll on by. People who are ignored go away. People who aren't ignored obviously serve a purpose.
edited to add: I do understand being a miffed at the implication that the rest of us don't take our children seriously. I've heard the same complaint from parents who don't like "Attachment Parenting", which implies that they aren't attached to their kids. I take my kid very seriously, even though I don't consider myself to be remotely close to a tcs parent.
