Parenting Debates & Hot Topics

Do you cringe when you see a toddler with a pacifier? Should kids do chores? Are time-outs ineffective? Join other parents to discuss hot topic issues. Guidelines for debate are as follows: Because debate boards appeal to articulate people with strong opinions, discussions on debate boards are sometimes heated. Please take a moment to review our community guidelines. Don't attack others. Personal attacks on others will not be tolerated. Challenge others points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully ... without insult and personal attack. Harassing, offensive, vulgar, abusive, hateful or bashing communications -- especially those aimed at sexual orientation, gender, race, color, religious views, national origin, or disability -- will not be permitted, you will receive one waring to your inbox...then you will be removed from the community if you receive any other complaints. Please be aware that the use of sarcasm to wound or belittle someone in a debate is not allowed and is considered attacking. These posts will be pulled as disruptive. Please report possible violations by using the "report" link that appears on every message. Thank You, and happy debating!
