I had to take J to have a urine analysis yesterday (possibly urinary infection). While waiting, he amused everyone in the room by picking up a "serious" French newspaper and studying it earnestly for several minutes - looking for all the world like a tiny businessman informing himself on current affairs. All was explained (to me), however, when I picked up the paper and saw what was on it - a terrible picture of a group of men, heavily booted, kicking a girl whose blouse had been torn off. I felt lost for words, actually, it was such a violent and horrible image. We talked about it - about the naughty men , about why people do naughty things like that (what do you say to a five year old?) and J didn't seem to approve of it. Yet... he is distinctly drawn to violence and aggression, always has been. Any thoughts about this?
