Did i say beat? Does an ass spanking constitute a beating? OH MY GOD!<quoted text>If you do not spoil your child you will not need the rod! How bout putting this in your memory bank of quotes: "It is so easy to discipline children with out beating them with a "ROD".
Woman, i worked with delinquents for 20 yrs that would have chewed your passive ass up and spit it out. You dont know nothing but dealing with your little darlings. Not all people are darlings. I've seen kids come from wealthy, well disciplined families that tried everything your by the book dr spock psycology bullshit had to offer.
Well, if they would have followed the old school approach it would have been a far different story. Like i said in an earlier post, people like you that believes in such crap have been proven wrong. Ever since your approach has been used, would you say todays youth are better behaved? Are they more respectful than the earlier generation? Are they scoring better overall in test scores at school than the earlier generation? Do they have a better work ethic? Are they the me generation or the we generation? Is drugs more rampant today? Is teen sex more prevalent today? Im not talking about yours, im talking about overall. So dont preach about something you havent experienced just because you got lucky with your own kids. Social scientists took control away from the parents and you see the results today. I put the fear of retribution in my kids at an early age, i spanked them twice. Thats all it took. From then on, i only had to give them the look and they conformed. And as far as the memory bank, you might be right, i've forgotten more than you've ever known.
