This episode is about three principles of philosophy applied to parenting:
- Children own themselves (all people are self-owners).
- Parents have positive obligations towards their children (all individuals are responsible for their own actions).
- It is wrong to initiate aggression against children (initiating aggression against anyone is unjustifiable).
If a principle is valid, then all its logical implications are valid too, even if those implications challenge widely-accepted practices. In the episode, I show how these principles can be applied to reevaluate many common parenting practices.
