My post was regarding self-defense. As far as becoming dependent, I would never recommend something like that. However, I WOULD rather someone be realistic and have realistic expectations at the same time.

So the realistic expectations are....? Basically, you are telling her to find a big man and tote him along with her everywhere she goes.

It's just physics that a smaller person isn't going to cause as much damage as a larger person.

Ok, so we have changed from "You're too small to cause any real physical damage" to not being able to cause AS MUCH damage as a larger person. Does it matter if she causes as much as a larger person? no. What matters is if she can apply techniques effectively in a attack situation. Its like comparing apples and oranges.

Go ahead and stick by your suggestions. But realize they were in no way helpful to littleone.
