Right and wrong.

Society has conflicts with personal decisions in many aspects. That's not a good answer.

It was actually a great answer. It was probably the only correct answer.

It is beginning to appear that you want to discuss right and wrong which was not your question. That's not intellectually honest. The answer provided was perfect.

I think its all about teaching tolerance. Ill teach my sons to accept people for what they are and that it isn"t our place to judge them.

I can conceive of a few possible ways to help things.

First off, shield them from fear as best you can. Imagine a young child, two parents, just brought into the world and wondering what's going on. The child might conceive of being the pet/slave of two demons, and so freedom should actually be maximized for the child I think. I'm actually against those barred cots, silly as notion might seem.

Secondly, teach the child straight from birth. Parenting is quite the enormous responsibility I think, not as it's taken as by many people out there. And I mean enormous enormous, nothing a condescending mind could conceive of. I remember I entered a house one day with a child in it, the mother somewhat interested in me and the child just kept bawling for her attention. She didn't know what was up with him, she said, and at which point I suggested that he was possessive, but she wouldn't have it. I have no doubt that she is a bad parent. I would be so honest with a child right from his or her inception, sugar-coating absolutely nothing. Certainly no cartoons.

Thirdly, let the child know he or she is not alone in feeling guilty, if they do in fact feel guilty, for it can be quite a burden to bear this feeling alone, and it might kill you if you're not strong enough.

And lastly, be a good example. This is self-explanatory.

My mother told me a story there a while ago about how I broke my little brother out of his cot there a while ago. It was funny, didn't remember that, though I do remember complimenting that girl I was talking about in my earlier post and the bed she had for her child, no bars, just a side-guard. It's nice to know I'm not a hack. No attention seeker here dudes.

Your statement does not present a conflict with mine, and I think you take issue with it because you've missed the point.

Exactly what Dectectable_Ninja said. What do YOU think is wrong with the world? How do YOU think someone could be part of the problem, or part of the solution?

Well of course for intelligent individuals like you and I. A hardcore bible thumper would say it is right to be intolerant of homosexuals. Intolerant meaning exactly that. I will teach my sons, regardless of your own personal beliefs to always be tolerant and accept others. Meaning if my son told me he didn't like basketball, i'd accept it regardless of wether or not I liked it. Knock on wood cause hes a beast already. Jesus Shuttlesworth lol

DN do you not think there's a whole lot wrong with the world or is it just that you feel hopeless for a remedy?

Teach them to understand "the world" (society) is a fantasy, and that the pursuit of their personal happiness is the only thing that ever could or should matter to them.

Yeah, because I definitely thought my assertions could count as their own justifications.

Tolerance & Open-mindedness.

You don't have to feed a child the secrets of the universe, but if you instill that sort of malleable mechanism that allows for intellectual growth and individual thought, you provide the tools to find his or her own solutions.

It depends on what you see the problem as.

I think you need to teach them to be reasonably emotional and emotionally reasonable. I think you need to teach them the value of working hard to achieve a goal. I think you need to teach them to be weary but trustworthy and to be able to judge a persons character quickly but not to be judgemental. My children will be told that if they want to be valued in society, they have to contribute to it.

I don't know, I'm honestly just hoping I don't mess them up.
