children are different....even with my three boys, they each had their own unique reaction to discipline....if you spanked one, hey it might work, but
if you spanked a different one, well, you would be in for the ride of your life, because well, all you would do would make him angrier and
the most positive response I got from them was just to take them one by one and sit down and talk to them, explain what the rules are, why they were
there, and well, try to describe what life would be like for all of us without them.....and well...ya, listen to their point too, because sometimes,
they had some really good reasons to be acting in ways that we didn't appreciate...
what can I say, we adults are not perfect either..
sometimes, I get the impression that we want our kids (as well as everyone elses) to be much more perfect than we are ourselves.... if the kids have
crappy role models, well, what do you expect.
I agree with those on here that say that if the gov't wants to interfer with our parenting rights to this extreme, well, they can be held responsible
when the kids get into trouble. sometimes, a good slap on the behind might be just what is needed to convince a kid not to play in the busy highway
and well, we all know who will be blamed if the kids happens to get run over.
