There's lots of misinformation out there when it comes to male circumcision and we owe it to our boys to dispel these myths and work for change.
Is harsh discipline always bad for kids? If not, how can we reconcile a desire to end such practices with research that may suggest they have a role?
One would think that with the evidence cited by many countries and health professions against the practice, the issue would be moot. But (yes, there’s a ‘but’), much of the older research cited has flaws and thus leaves the door open for those who support the practice to stake their claim.
One of the touchier subjects in natural parenting circles is the issue of male circumcision. It can cause two individuals who agree on every other aspect of parenting to cease speaking or supporting one another. It raises ire amongst those adamant that it’s akin to abuse and defensiveness amongst those who practice the rite for religious purposes.
