Obviously you have never been a parent, or you would never have made such inane statements. If you treat people with dignity and respect, that does not mean going to the BurgerKing route and they get it their way all the time. Let the children live there too long and you have college students looking for safe spaces, when they should be taking on uncomfortable subjects and dicussing them with the opposition; how the hell else do you learn to respect your own opinions and defend them! Reality is a harsh mistress and you are far better preparing people for it than coddling them. You can do it in a kindly manner, one does not have to be brutal, but joining and blessing another person’s fantasy is helpful to neither of you, and basically dishonest, unless you are of a like mind, then it’s off to la la land.
