At any rate, no one has said anything about or disagrees with parents who never praise their children and have only unkind words and criticism.
But what does that have to do with discipline and teaching children right from wrong so they don't grow up to be self-absorbed and/or violent adults?
Pardon me for assuming that you knew what a one way parent is.
