Re: "Bribing" for affection - too sensitive, or just let it go?
My DS does NOT like kisses/hugs. Our familys aren't so bad, but he has had some babysitters and some family friends that have been pretty insistant about him hugging or kissing. I just tell him (as they stand there) "You don't have to do it, its ok to say no". That way we're all on the same page and I don't have to wonder whats going on when I'm not there.
People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs
