Frog Boiler!

OH MY!!

I've accidentily been accused of posting a video of a horrendous crime!

Yikes!! ~ But then again, it did leave me in stitches!!! ROLFLTSDMFBBBF!!

(and NO I'm not translating.)

Here's what I posted on my innocent site:

:: "I'm Not A Frog-Boiler! " ::


When you reject authoritarian, coercive parenting in

favor of non-punitive, pleasure-oriented parenting,

critics and naysayers will warn you that your child

won't be able to cope in the "real" world.


The assumption is that "it's a jungle out there" and

we should gradually toughen up our kids and get them

used to suffering so they won't be shocked when they

venture out into the big, bad world.


It's like that famous experiment where they tossed a

healthy frog in boiling water and it leaped right out.

But if they put the frog in cool water and raised the

temperature gradually over several days, the frog

would be able to *adjust* and stay in the water.


The slow boil seems more humane, but that

"well-adjusted" frog eventually *died* from the heat!

Whereas the non-adjusted frog's intact sensitivity

protected it from being boiled.


Today, look for evidence that your child's sensitivity

is intact (e.g., negative reactions to unwanted

conditions) and be *grateful* for it! Tell yourself,

"My child will *never* get boiled!"

And here's the comment that left me in stitches, which lead to this new blog!

Oh B&B.....I just can't bring myself to click on that video. I'm sure it can't really be of a frog boiling, but the image in my mind is taking over! AUGHGHGH!!!!
