    You have no idea what that experience is/can be like obviously.

    They were effectively arrested and that is a traumatic and intentionally humiliating thing in order to get submission.

    I was huckleberry Finn compared to how so many kids are raised these days. Time will tell which method is better, I guess. It's kind of hard not to conclude that in a post apocalyptic world they won't be the first to be eaten, though.

    You're projecting your own feelings onto the kids. For you having someone change your clothes or bathe you would be humiliating. Children are naturally submissive, it's not traumatic for them, it's comforting.

    children submissive? I'm sorry but do you have children? I'm about to wake up my daughter and have to get her ready for school, let me take a wager on how submissive she will be when I start telling her what to do.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    To ride in a car unrestrained with a policeman? The only way I could believe this being traumatic is if the parents are loony anti police advocates and taught their kids to fear cops. They didn't take them to jail....

    Yeah I used to walk two miles down to the ferry dock at southworth with my dog when I was 10-12. Never an issue.

    Then again in a rural area like where I grew up is a little different then in an urban area adjacent to the most dangerous major city In the country
