Parents who decided to have
their babies circumcised were more likely to be satisfied
with their decision than were parents of uncircumcised boys.
A California survey of 149 families (81 had babies circumcised,
68 did not), published in the Journal of the American Academy
of Pediatrics, found that parents who failed to have their
sons circumcised were significantly more likely to feel
they made the wrong decision when questioned at the offspring
age of 6 to 36 months. Compared to parents of circumcised
boys those parents felt they had not been given adequate
information about the procedure or been asked if they wanted
circumcision. The parents of the circumcised infants tended
to be white (83% circumcised) and better educated (63% college
graduates) while Hispanic parents most often chose not to
circumcise (16% circumcised) and were less well educated
(9% college graduates).
