Self Infantalization

Self Infantilization, according to Wiki:
"to infantilize (third-person singular simple present infantilizes, present participle infantilizing, simple past and past participle infantilized)

1. (transitive) To reduce (a person) to the state or status of an infant.
2. (transitive) To treat (a person) like a child.

Allegedly we infantilize to create a nurturing response.

hhhmmm....It wasn't you who treated you like an infant first and in a prolonged manner which perpetuated the staus quo. We're all guilty as charged.
