Corporal punishment, whatever it's form is still violence. It teaches the child that violence is a solution to a problem. Not using corporal punishment doesn't mean cursing and screaming is the alternative method. I chose none of that. I took away priviledges and talked to them. Sometimes I used the silent treatment; or just removed myself if they became mouthy; simply saying that they didn't get to talk to me that way. It worked.<quoted text>
Again, only liberals equate discipline with beatings.
Screaming and cursing is a much better way to teach children acceptable behaviors in society.
Of course, it teaches screaming and cursing is another acceptable behavior.
Take you, for example.
My father used the silent treatment on us and we never disobeyed him or talked back. Never.
