The Bullying Parent
Agression as a parenting style solves short term problems of controlling children, but it leads to serious problems for those children and how they will grow up to deal with the adult world.
Parenting style gives children two choices: they can be a victim, because that's role they've been in their family or children can become bullies indirectly because that's what's been modeled for them.
In order to create and maintain change, we must remember that we're being watched by our yournger generation and they adopt a lot of their social behaviors from us. Let's model appropriate behavior if we are to expect it of our children.
Is Tolerance really acceptance?
The goal for us in or representing the LGBT community should be promoting understanding as opposed to tolerance and acceptance.
We may never be accepted, but so long as we accept ourselves that is the only tolerance we need.
