    No I don't think it analogous. I suppose the choices would be dependent on the situation. In that situation the kid is at least open about what he/she is going through. After that it would be dependent on personalities, relationships and mental states. No two scenarios are going to be exactly alike, so why pretend like they are and make blanket judgments. What is your experience with this situation?

    You said the threat was employed as a tactic, not me.

    I'm not saying it wouldn't be tried. But it brings mental state into the equation. You scoffed at it.

    Vermont is no longer a state.

    It's a wholly-owned subsidiary of New York liberals who buy second mansions there for the clean air and also to have a second place to vote.

    I think an astute parent would be able to discern whether the threat given is real or a tactic.

    I've given my opinion. Give someone else a try.
