I'm climbing up on a perch, one more time, to try to make them see reason.  Even though I don't have very high hopes.  It looks to be a long way down, and it's really crowded up here.

How many of you have heard the phrase "Different strokes for different folks?"  Even more importantly, how many of you know what that means?  I'll explain, for those who don't.  It is a phrase 'used to emphasize that all people are individuals and that what suits one will not necessarily suit another'.

Here's an example:  If A believes in restricting tv time, and B doesn't, it does not mean B is a bad mother.  It just means she has different ideas.  Or, I'll throw another one out there:  If A breastfed because that's what she believed in, and B didn't, that does not mean A's way is the ONLY way and B's way is wrong.

Why is that so hard to understand?  Now, I'll add a poll to see if I accomplished anything.  Or, if all of us that believe that are sorely outnumbered.

 Okay, the ones that are voting nope, I'd really like to hear from you too.  I'm just curious what makes you experts in your field.

 Most of us have heard of it.  I'm just wondering if the ones on the pedastals have.

I've heard it, and I agree with you.

Eh, half the people get upset if you simply say it's not something you would do.
example personally I don't agree with spanking. It doesn't mean we can't talk if you're a spanker but it also doesn't mean I'm ever going to condone when you spank. It's better just to not talk about that stuff with friends.
