This month our Netflix subscription also started again. I forgot to change the reactivation date. Opps! No big deal because Leonard told me he was thinking about starting it again. I watched one of the instant plays since the CW website wasn't working. So sad I couldn't catch up on Vampire Diaries. :-( I watched the movie Babies. I saw a review back like a year ago when it first came out. The movie is a documentary and it follows 4 babies in different countries through the first year of life. It shows the differences between children that are raised in Africa, Mongolia, US, and Japan. I have only watched half of the movie but I have basically came to these conclusions:
1. All of the men are not significantly involved in the child rearing process
2. Women in the US and Mongolia tend to be a little older
3. All babies, no matter where they are from, are very curious
4. Sibling riveraly occurs everywhere
I realize that all parents are slightly different in their parenting styles and that this is just a sample. Though I thought they did a good job picking the US mother. Her behavior was pretty typical and not too extreme. I am guessing that is the same for the other mothers? I was also suprised at how similar US and Japanese parenting styles seem to be. If you have seen this movie, I would love to hear any comments!
