I think we might be talking about different age groups. I'm talking high school children, I think it's inappropriate to control a teenagers life as that is one of the most challenging times of your childhood.

I'm talking about child up till around 18. Full pre-adulthood. And no, the developing brain is not properly equipped to make rational adult decisions until well into the 20's so 18 is being generous. The fast that it's one of the most challenging times of their childhood is even more reason to monitor them and guide them away from damaging things.

So then I guess you'll back up tracking kids? monitoring all social activity? Putting your child on a leash? Calling the cops on your child for smoking weed?

This is not how you raise a child, this is how you raise a social reject. Rules are important to put into place, but they shouldn't be enforced by micro managing. If I walk in on my child watching porn, I'll tell them why they shouldn't be watching porn, explain to them sexual relationships, and educate them on the practices of safe sex and why men are attracted to women. You can't try and stop natural curiosity
User avatar #97 - Vandeekree (04/10/2015) [-]
Yes. If you have nothing to hide then why do you need privacy? Maybe adults are mature enough to handle their own privacy and be held accountable for what they do. But children cannot. Your weed example is perfect because a child and young adult cannot be expected to understand the consequences of their actions. It is 100 percent for their protection.

And that is how you raise a child. How you become a responsible adult. You protect them from anything and everything you can until they grow up enough to make intelligent ration choices in their adulthood. Both my parents are school teachers and they see it year after year. The students who do well in school, who are polite, who are social butterflies and have level heads and respect for rules are the ones with strict parents. Parents who care. Who enforce limits.

And I know it's hard work to monitor your child. To "stop natural curiosity" as you put it. But you have to, because if you don't that curiosity will carry those kids into their own ruin. There is nothing wrong with holding a child back from sex, from violence, and from extreme social tendencies like emo fads and other forms of social self expression. It protects them. Then once they are adults let them look down from their college degree and entry level position and decide if they want to give drugs a try, if they want to cut their hair, if they want to google what the bits of the other sex look like.

But trouble is how kids learn. This is how they form their own opinions. The natural instinct for a lot of kids as soon as you let them free is to do whatever your parents told you not to do.

For example, many kids aren't educated about drugs or alcohol. They're just scared into believing if they do drugs they will die. Most kids are smart enough to know that's not the case, and eventually they'll see their peers doing drugs and not dying.

If we were to educate kids on harm reduction, rather than scaring them straight, they might understand the consequences.
User avatar #93 - Vandeekree (04/10/2015) [-]
Nobody said anything about scaring anyone straight. There is no mention of deception or "lies for their own good." The only thing this seems meant to do is allow a parent to tell their kids "no porn" and then conveniently check that they are following the rules.

Children do not need to be left free to make their own choices. That is what adulthood is for. Until they reach that level of maturity then they don't need to see such things, they need to know they are off limits even if they can't understand why, and they need to know that they are being watched and if they disobey punishment will follow.

I can guarantee that The Simpsons doesn't portray all Christians at all.
User avatar #34 - dvdfaust (04/06/2015) [-]
For what it's worth there's this concept with characters in long-running shows called "Flanders-ization" where an actual character with multiple personality traits and charm slowly becomes boiled down to a single trait, and that's their whole schtick. Flanders started as being the too-good neighbor--he had a good family, a good wife, a good house, a good job, and Homer irrationally hated him. Him being a Christian was a seriously minor factor. Now that's about all he's got. Hell, his arc about being left-handed used to be a more serious personality trait...
User avatar #32 - freizaxplains (04/06/2015) [-]
back then flanders was a real character with a quirk, now he is full bible thumper with little to no personality traits

To be fair, the guy's had two wives die and has to put up with Homer's shit, anybody'd be a bit messed up after all that.

I've only watched it a bit but I think its just Flanders as the typical portrayal of christians in the show

Do you not have morals? Like seriously do you not have any? You claim that you only do as the bible instructs every time someone asks you about morals, but do you not know right from wrong without religion?

If so perhaps you should learn it. I'm an agnostic and I still know what's right from wrong without a higher entity instructing me on it. If the only thing keeping you from being a moral-less prick is religion then you are probably a psychopath.

Now I strongly disagree that more studies need to be done in order to come to a consensus. All of the leading bodies which have done research on the subject have found no reason to indicate that gays are naturally more likely through their expression of sexuality to have any types of adverse effects. The only people I have heard calling for more research are the same people claiming that climate change is not a thing or that natural selection doesnt happen. There is a consensus in the scientific community and it is people who are not a part of the community who claim that they cant make conclusions (because they dont like the ones made)
