Thank you for the clarity "holein1". I appreciate that.
MissCat, you and I are in agreement. You can't see it now because it has been removed, but there was an equally rude comment by a poster named "catgirl" it was in no way, shape or form directed at you MissCat. I hope that clears it up.
I am not sure what you are implying "holein1". I felt "fatguys" post was rude. No one needed to call that child a "brat". I was taking the child's side.
I'm happy to learn of the Alfie Kohn fans in my community, not happy with how it was expressed.
sounds like fatguy and catgirl could get together and raise perfectkids. how you can base your opinions on a single quote from an 11 year old girl in a blip piece about a power outage?
i'm sure birthdays and chirstmas your house is awesome!
kid-"sweet! i got a rake and shovel."
fatguy/catgirl-"that's right. you didn't think i was going to buy you a toy did you? you have to learn that working is what makes it possible to buy something. now rake the leaves and go dig some ditches!"

Hateful much "fatguy". Maybe it was a treat for good behavior.
