Tyranny of parenting by rational argumentation

tumbled this post from Jeff, as you can see in my recently improved sidebar, but I have to blog about the Dabney quotes.  They remind me of the insanity that results from trying to argue with one’s child about various fashion/music/culture choices by a form of alleged presuppositionalism.  If it means that much to you, just forbid it.  Don’t torment a growing mind by talking about how that hairstyle is really based on pagan creation-from-ultimat-chaos myths.  If you need to interfere (and there is often wisdom in not doing so) then just use authority.  Don’t torture logic.
