What are the reasons behind you discomfort with talking to minors? Could they be the same as your discomfort with the corporal punishment of teens?

I can't speak for Tissueman, but I don't talk to minors privately either. It's just not done, as the Brits say. It opens yourself up to questions and it can and has led to accusations from others of wrongdoing. I just won't put myself in that position. Not to mention, people aren't always who they claim to be.

No, I think it is just am instinctual connection to strict boundaries we set with our sons about talking to people on the internet that they, and by extension we, had not personally meet. People misrepresent themselves all the time on the web and I suppose I am just uncomfortable with the idea of talking about such personal and sensitive information with minors who I have not met and whose parents I have not met. It ,at be an overcatious thing but it is a comfort level thing for me.

Sometimes the Trillian app will stop when I try to log off of it.

I'm thinking about leaving Trillian. I'm tired of people on there judging me because I don't have any children.

I don't think anyone is judging you, Most parents want to speak to other parents or guardians to compare how they discipline

No, it's not that. I just get tired of the reaction I get from some people on Trillian when I tell them I don't have any children. A couple of them even asked why I was in a Yahoo group about discipline if I don't have any children. I won't have to deal with them anymore because I have permanently closed my Trillian account.
