"Be wary of saying or doing anything to a child that you would not do to another adult, whose good opinion and affection you valued."
- John Holt
I get the point, and it's a beautiful one. But I guess my question is...would I tell another adult, whose good opinion and affection I valued, to quit choking the dog and please put his pants and underwear back on before going outside? And how much would I value the opinion of an adult who tried to kill my pets and flash his bum to the neighbors? Anyway. Food for thought.
