I just re-read the email, and he says that ds2 hurting her could lead to her developing man-anxiety (he's using that term because I confided in him that *I* have man anxiety).

After he says that spanking produces well adjusted kids. More well adjusted than non-spanked kids.


Seriously, even if you are pro-spanking, how the heck do you reconcile those two thoughts? Being hurt by another kid = long term psychological damage. Being hurt by your parent = more well adjusted than you would otherwise be.


I should tell him that my dad spanked me, and thanks for giving me the idea that it might be THAT that caused my man anxiety. But I won't say that. What's that saying? Don't engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed man?
