I would be most grateful if you would assist me in answering a profound and troubling question. I have thought on it, wrestled with it, and puzzled over it – and still, I am unable to arrive at a satisfactory solution. Riddle me this:
Spanking a 5-year-old for disobedience is an unpardonable form of child abuse. Attending a violent, gritty R-rated movie with your youngster in tow is, however, a perfectly acceptable way to parent. Why?
Please help. If you know the answer, or think you do, drop me a line in the comments section. I’m almost at the end of my rope. Passing this test is vital if I am to receive my BA in follies and nonsense (F/N).
