    It should be illegal for the damned to be a parent, let alone have the audacity to claim a way of raising your damned children. You do realize you are your bloodline are damned for watching billions of people starve.

    IS THIS THE METHOD WHERE YOU ASK THE BABY IF IT WANTS TO BE PICKED UP?

    That dude just sounds like a moron. XD When people say, “Treat them as equals.” it more, if they are crying, ask, what’s wrong, and figure out why, and explain it. It is bad just to say “it’s okay” and then dismiss what they were feeling because that doesn’t help them learn and grow from that feeling was inside of them.

    Or when you’re talking to a child, talk down at their level, squat down, and talk to them as equals, and you would be surprised with how much they know and can say, it’s just they are IGNORANT to the world because they have only been on the planet at all for a handful of years. They simple do not know, and need to be educated on the world. Most parents are just intellectually lazy, and don’t actually think of their kids as being these insane sponges of knowledge that are as smart as their parenting allows their kids to be.

    I’ll leave you all with a quote from my father that helped be become who I am: “No such thing as a ‘stupid question’; only a question that could be answered quickly.”

    Uh I guess my RIE method is different. When we were body surfing in the ocean with my nephew, he said his eyes were burning and started to cry. I said, “All of our eyes are burning dude. You’re with the men.” Immediately he stopped talking about it and caught some waves with us. He can swim like a fish now.

    Honestly… I see nothing wrong with this method. I think it’s better to tell your kids the truth than to feed them lies and fantasy only for life to crush them later. I think we should be teaching children how to cope properly.

    “Parent” (noun) – someone who spent their entire lives having no idea how to raise children and then in the matter of hours knows everything about it.

    I haven’t heard of the RIE Method. But his example doesn’t sound like treating them as equals. I would never say to a grown up “soap is happening”, because that would be weird xD
    However, him being a comedian, I understand why he would try to see it from a humorous point of view 🙂

    Just started watching him on “Crashing” on hulu. So far so good. Artie Lang and TJ Miller have been on the episodes that I’ve seen too.
