I don't think there is anything wrong with it, though I do think it is considered retention (because he is repeating K, right?). The thing is, you may not have that option. I would speak with the...

I agree. Sometimes I think we can use harsher language to defend our fellow mothers than we would use in response to a particular parenting choice. I'm sort of ok with that. ;-)

I guess I can see where you're coming from. I would say that it may be helpful to see some of the tricky language being used to support the other perspective. More often than not, I feel like I see...

I watched a few minutes of the video. Fear-mongering, non-news as far as I'm concerned. I'm far more worried for the sate of our culture that this passes for mainstream news than a confident,...

Of course you are entitled to your opinion but I don't think the OP's child sounds like an inadequately socialized child (if there even is such a thing at such a young age). In addition to...
