When did I say I wanted to abridge someone's right to express themselves? I was just pointing something out is all. I'm not trying to stop her. Also, this whole 1950's idea of parenting is nonsense. It never existed. I myself had the benefit of being raised by all sorts of people throughout my life and a dear friend of mine wasn't even raised by his parents and he turned out great. Again, I'm not cheapening the parent child bond. I'm just saying that your version of it doesn't exist.
