a child development theory

At some point, all toddlers go through the stage where they think they are empowered by just saying no or resisting everything.

In a typical patriarchal family order- very common among farm families- Dad then slaps the living daylights out of them.

Thus they become emotionally fixed for life at that point of their development.
