In your system it would be impossible to raise my child how I see fit as everyone's opinion and desire on what to teach them would interfere. For example, if I want my child to have an open mind about religion and make their choice on what to believe, yet some highly religious person or extreme atheist push their belief or opinion on my child without allowing my child to follow their own journey.
Leftist are you saying that Leftist weren't entirely aware of what caused volcano's?
Just about everything you say is as ridiculous as this statement. Honestly I rarely waste my time trying to debate with you anymore, God knows you never read or comprehend what's being said.
Yes. And I was agreeing that I disagree with that idea though I do believe the base of it could be sound. The entire community doesn't have a claim to my child as their parent but it is important for a community to help raise a child, provided you cut out the bad 'community members'. If that makes sense.
My children are my own because they are my own. I am the primary provider for them, I am the primary person who supports and guides them. I act as the parent. I would argue that a person who is neglectful of their kids is a parent in name only and even that could be argued. In that instance society or an outside person needs to intervene.
In the statement, it takes a village, it's not (as you know) in the literal sense. The village in this instance is the one I choose for my children. Close friends, family, those who love my child and have their best interest at heart. Anyone who is a negative influence isn't part of that village or would be cast out. I hope that clears it up. I don't really mean village literally, more figuratively. But if the person simply had a different viewpoint in parenting I'm ok with it, if they want to raise their children that way (provided it isn't neglectful or abusive) I would respect that so long as they respect the way I want mine raised. Example would be like if they had a show they didn't want their kids to view but I was fine with my own viewing, I would respect their decision and not let my kids view that show in their child's presence.
I'd have to disagree on that as well. While I do believe it takes a village to raise a child in many instances, my kids are my own. Of course I want someone looking out for them, if they misbehave when I'm not present I want that brought to my attention but I and my husband are the only one's who have the right to punish my children should they need it.
