do you think it's wrong?

I consider infants to be like baby animals.. the way they learn and they need you..

  • You're right. I think of it that way too. That's how they learn, but mastering new "tricks". It seems cold when you put it that way, but it's really not. My son learned a new trick this week... he learned to say "ca ca" at the garbage can.

  • In a way, but human babies have more emotion and feelings as they grow than animals. the needs become emotional as well as physical

  • well of course and they can display emotions more .. I spose I mean the way they learn.... it's almost like trying ot teach them a trick until they get it down for themselves.

  • I see what your saying! I often wondered (& my husband disagrees) but if you taught a kid that the color red was actually green that you could really teach them all sorts of freaky stuff. It is repetition in my opinion.

  • A doggy? You have food, they come. They want attention and want you to play with them.

  • No... When babies get older, you see how vastly different they are from pups or kitties...

  • yes, you could teach your kids all kinds of false information....that's the scary part, there are parents who arent really born with anything beyond a few instincts, everything else is just taken on faith from what they are told or what they have experienced

  • Really? I guess, I have seen people walking there children on leashes recently and pulling them along...interesting.
