Childhood prisons

If you have the time, Molyneux's take on the force relationship, childhood prison, and power differentials amongst children and parents is interesting, although might be hard to understand without understanding a lot of his other points of view:

I have three children and would consider it nightmarish to ever strike them or cause them physical pain. But it's probably true that ultimately my ability to hurt them matched with the possibility of abandonment gives me my power over them.

But the closer I can make most interactions about love, collaboration, example, cooperation, good sense, rational decision making, etc., the happier and freer I hope we will be.
