Just reading over the playground threads; ie. the slide and saying "I'm sorry." Boy, we have lots and lots of different opinions. How cool that we can share and disagree and still respect each other.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
Nice role models for the kids, eh? : <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="carrot">

Well, it's not too hard if the issue doesn't involve spanking or crying...<br><br>
:LOL<br><br>
JUST KIDDING! I agree, why doesn't anyone remember these threads when they complain how judgemental we all are?? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Piglet, you are so funny! :LOL <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao"><br><br>
Honestly, i thought the thread would be turned into a pissing match of sorts, but it didnt, thankfully!<br><br>
Funny aside, you made a good point Piglet, it wasnt about spanking or crying!

Spanking, Crying, and . . . Santa Clause. Always freaks me out how passionate people are about whether or not to do Santa <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Reading threads like those does a lot to temper my own judgmentalism!<br><br>
I tend to think that anyone who doesn't behave just as I do just hasn't thought it through! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: It's good for me to be reminded that others can be thoughtful, caring, and intelligent - but have different opinions from mine! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Peace.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Peace">

That's funny--I didn't think the "I'm sorry" thread (at least, I haven't read the whole slide one) was terribly respectful with people saying "I hate 'I'm sorry'" or using similarly strong language towards "insincere apologies" and blanketing them uniformly in a particular way<br><br>
just my 2 cents. seemed more to me that there was a strong majority opinion that most people seemed to agree with that a genuine give and take and respect...<br><br>
though I do like napless's point above, and I agree with it in general on the boards...
