You have a great daughter, I was spanked and I am great... shucks, so obviously both can work. I just feel that it would be better if more parents would learn positive parenting and use it properly. That's all...
You always get to be the cool parent.

Here:Please point out where I said any of that is bad parenting???
That you think being a parent inherently comes with an unqualified superiority complex says it all.The fact is kids need and expect control from low and behold! A ****ing parent! It is not only OK to control your kids as an adult since YOU KNOW BEST FOR THEM (or at least you are supposed to) it is expected by society to raise well adjusted children who feel (you guessed it!) loved and cared for!
It's not being kind that makes you a bad parent, it's not being a PARENT, that makes you a bad parent.
I doubt it considering I have not had any "complete misunderstanding" of anything or overdramatized anything.Or perhaps considering your complete misunderstanding and over dramatization of everything, have once again jumped to the wrong conclusion?
There was nothing nonsensical about my comment. You just apparently fail to understand what your own parenting ideas represent. A notion of "praise" for good kids and "discipline" for bad kids is all about risk-reward.OK here is my statement...
Spanking is not abuse, sometimes it is the only thing kids will understand. If they tried that time out crap with me or one of my brothers, please. It would have stopped us from doing nothing. Time out and other stupid disciplinary crap (Mostly by egg heads who never had kids no less) that does not work. Even kids think it's a joke. In the end those of us who were spanked occasionally did well, we knew about boundaries and punishment. - Blackdog
To which you respond with the unadulterated nonsense that completely ignores what I said and makes some kind of lame ass blanket statement that is wrong.
When you play the risk-reward game you only teach kids not to get caught or that violence is the way to solve your problems. If someone is only raised to weigh actions according to how it may be beneficial or harmful then that person is not going to be capable of reacting appropriately in some situations. - Demon of Light
Yes I am saying your whole statement is complete and unadulterated nonsense.
I sure as hell did. Did you? There were some disinterested comments about it potentially saving money, but the really impassioned arguments are all about social control.Oh my god? Did you read ANYTHING in this thread?
