  1. The Case Against Circumcision
    Years ago I worked at a daycare where we had lots of Hispanic kids, & so all of the boys were intact. I had to help one little boy wipe up after peeing on himself. I of course knew not to skin him back. I remember wiping toward his tip, the wipe got caught and pulled his foreskin away from...

    <p>My son is 3. He has never been a good sleeper. I will be honest with you here. We have tried to get him into a bedtime routine since he was a baby, but he has never gotten the sleeping aspect of the routine.
