    Are you denying that the term "expressing themselves" did not originate from liberal beliefs when it came to discipline in schools?

    No, I'm saying that your claim that, as an adult and as a libertarian, you would not resent being humiliated is ridiculous and that turning an issue of bad parenting into a partisan issue is ridiculous and that your entire attitude toward the effective discipline of children is ridiculous.

    I agree. I understood and was prepared for the fact that my opinion would not be taken seriously (because of my age and unmarried/childless situation) by some people, but I see no correlation between political allegiance and the situation under discussion. I further agree that anyone, but especially a 13 year old girl, would resent being publicly humiliated. To employ public humiliation as a behavioural correction is both unintelligent and counter-productive.

    That must be why my kids are all successful adults and my stepson is already dead because his mother (my wife) believed as you do.

    Sometimes kids make good decisions despite the way they were raised. If you really used humiliation as a way to correct behavior, then that appears to be what happened.

    Humiliation and disappointment are great teachers of what life really is. It is easy to spot kids that were shielded from it. They can handle life.

    Worried about their 13-year-old daughter's increasingly disrespectful behavior, Gentry and Renee Nickell of Crestview, Florida, decided to make her punishment humiliating and public. On Saturday, the teen (whose name has not been released) spent 90 minutes standing at a busy intersection with a hand-written sign describing her sins.

    It read: "Iím a self-entitled teenager w/no respect for authority. Iím also super smart, yet I have 3 'Dís' because I DONíT CARE."

    Too much.. the object of discipline is not to humiliate.. it is to teach and correct.. These parents failed long before she was a rebellious and disrespectful teen.

    CHILDREN LEARN WHAT THEY LIVE

    Dorothy Law Nolte

    If a child lives with criticism,
    he learns to condemn.

    If a child lives with hostility,
    he learns to fight.

    If a child lives with fear,
    he learns to be apprehensive.

    If a child lives with pity,
    he learns to feel sorry for himself.

    If a child lives with ridicule,
    he learns to be shy.

    If a child lives with jealousy,
    he learns what envy is.
    and if he lives with humiliation, what do you think he learns?

    I agree, that let the world of PC and liberalism direct them up to this point.

    He doesn't live with it idiot, he learns from it just like an athlete that loses a game. Liberal idiots believe no child should suffer regardless of their actions. that is why we have idiot kids committing adult crimes.
