Decisions in real life are not based on facts, but in the case of parenting, this is the case even more so. Often, decisions are based solely on past experiences, gossip, or Oprah. This often leads to inconsistencies in logic that bother children or young adults. While the concept of being inconsistent is mind bogglingly terrible for an engineer, parents mostly shrug it off and go back to talking about soccer, as parenting is all about never admitting that you are wrong.
