Strawman. No sane definition of friendliness calls for unquestioning
obedience regardless of consequences.
Blindly fulfilling all of a child's requests has a good chance of
screwing ver up pretty badly, even if it won't kill ver. Caring parents
tend to filter a child's wishes quite a bit before ve learns to do it
verself (ie. grows up).
