Seems our continued search for easy answers to complex questions has taken a new twist: Dog Training our Children.
The Times has an article about this, in which one parent says,
“When we started watching his shows, we had intended to apply his advice toward our dogs,” said Amy Twomey, a blogger on parenthood for The Dallas Morning News who is raising three children under 10 with her husband, Matt. “But we realized a lot of ideas can be used on our kids.”
While there’s truth in the idea that handing over authority to your children can reap some awful consequences, do we really want to use dog training as a model???
