My understanding is that we were discussing two people yelling at each other in an argument and the concerns of observers about the example this was setting for young children, and that it was irritating/bothersome to the observers. And that the behavior and the objections to it had been repeated and how to stop it. The discussion gets confused when yelling is de facto equated with dumping or power plays. And expression of feelings/frustrations in particular ways are labeled unilaterally as "not nice" and destructive while others are labelled unilaterally as nice and constructive. These are situational and conditional definitions that obscure the real issue--people are upset. -- Sharon Villines MacGuffin Guide to Detective Fiction http://www.macguffin.net Takoma Village Cohousing, Washington, DC http://www.home.earthlink.net/~takomavillag/
