parents who hit their kids only do so because they cant control their temper.
these parents generally stop hitting their kids when the kids grow big enough to defend themselves,
Total bollocks, a parent can control their temper and give warnings several times with an eventual threat that if you don't stop that you will get a
smack. If the child doesn't listen they get a smack (or sometimes sent to their room or both). There are ways to discipline children but all in
moderation and appropriate to the situation. When children get older they can be reasoned with more, at that stage it becomes 'if you don't stop
that you will not be allowed on the Xbox/PC/or whatever the child prizes most'
With no discipline at all and only 'talking to and reasoning with' children will walk all over you and become out of control.
You say bullies??? Let me tell you how bullies work. The children who bullied my kids at school didn't stop after the 'we will have a chat with them
and explain that what they are doing is wrong', no, it took 4 years of schools doing 'little chats' under the softly softly system, and that did
NOTHING to stop their bullying behaviour and it wasn't until I demanded the parents be brought in and that it must stop NOW that I actually got some
action to stop it and it did, over night in fact.
Tell me, how many children have you raised? I am curious to know.
