    Inuit theory is worthy of consideration and adaptation to specific situations. BUT, Not Yelling, or Threatening Anger with young children is clearly worth praise and emulation.
    As always, a wonderful set of linked articles. THANK YOU!

      the part I’m not sure about is the faux-anthropological almost fetishization of how other cultures raise children… from the French to Latin America (recent article on why Latin American kids do chores without being asked) and now Inuit… it harkens to a time when the media would use the words “noble savage”. The first person reporting in the Inuit article is particularly off-putting having read a lot of 19th century travelogues/fictional anthroplogists.

      When it was just the French it wasn’t quite so squicky, though we’ve always seen the French as the most “exotic” of Europeans. It seems to be a *thing* right now and that makes me a bit uncomfortable.

    I shared that article too because I think there are merits to some aspects of the style that are worth thinking about adapting to our parenting but I’m not sure I’m really into the way it was presented either. I was thinking small details rather than big picture the first read through.

    The article about the patriarchy and trans rights is wonderful. Thanks for sharing!

      The whole TERF phenomenon is completely perplexing to me. The article does a pretty good job explaining how people who think they would never support places like Fox News or the Heritage Foundation are actually dupes. And there’s just some people in every group that is there because they have to feel superior, not because they actually understand the movement or care about the outcomes. (See also: anti-abortionists, anti-vaxxers, etc… the leaders don’t really care about children’s health, but they are good at duping people who do.)
