I can't image that a baby would be happy without some sort of structure and protection, really. The only time playpens and cribs might be bad is if the baby is left in them all day and not held or allowed to roam.

No, I don't think so. It offers them some protection and I'm sure that when they turn 16 they're probably not going to end up on Prozac because of a Playpen.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was.

It lets them observe the world while still having a sense of security. As long as the parents don't just leave them in there all day and ignore them.... It shouldn't cause any damage.

I turned out ok. I think.

No, but I bet some lawyer could convince a jury that they are.

Now that its mentioned.

Does anyone recall being in a playpen/crib when little?.

I remember begging to go in the playpen with my brother when he was 2-ish and I was 4-ish; we would mostly make piggy faces and squash our noses on the mesh.

I have one teather for the dog and one for the child. She does not know that anything is wrong with that.

They can play together.

I can understand the premise, but how extensive could the damage really be, and, are we all scarred for it?

probably everything is psychologically damaging for babies

I asked this question after sitting and listening as my two friends, parents of a then ten-month-old boy, discussed how they thought it would be damaging for him to be behind bars in his crib. I think the idea is pretty silly, because on the same premise it's damaging for him to be barred from sticking forks into light sockets.

I don't think it's damaging at all.

They're only damaging if a baby gets his or her head stuck in between the bars like my cousin did, lol!

Psychological damage doesn't mean much if you get eaten by the neighbor's rottweiler. Cribs are important for safety reasons.

most likely

I don't know, never heard that, but aren't walkers supposed to be ?

its another way we're programming people to feel caged by society and life in general.. don't worry they'll never know what we're doing to them

I doubt they are, they're there for safety reasons. Walkers can though (DarkFaerie13) they can hinder development and stop a child from learning to walk alone properly. They have also been known to cause injury or even death.

It is not natural and all play toys and other crib nonsense was only there to distract us from the truth. about our parents and about the world.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 10/3/04 - 5:48:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think they are. I turned out fine.
*twitch*

Computers are not natural, burn yours.

Like anything, it depends on how you use it.

It was better than the closet they locked me in at night.
