"I've never heard that and am a nature documentary junkie. I do know that male lions who want to take over a pride will kill cubs sired by other male lions. I see your smiley. I just don't want to see misinformation propagated."

"I never did anything most people would call spanking, which is usually a hard smack on a bare or nearly bare bottom. I did swats which didn't hurt all that much but got my child to pay attention to me. There is nothing unnatural about that sort…"

"Incapable yes, but we try to teach them the right way.  I think there is no Mark I standard model human and trust me I was in the delivery room when my son popped out and I didn't see a manual come out with him.   Not every kid is the…"

"I think we should be beating the hell out of old people who cant drive anymore.  Might just get them to stay off the road."

"No approach works 100% of the time, not even the "there's always a better way (than corporal punishment)" approach because, I hate to say, you have the occasional "bad seed." Some kids seem to be born psychopathic or even…"

"I don't know. I'm just saying i my experience I have seen kids get away with hitting their parents - the sit down and talk about it approach doesn't seem to work. Maybe a slap on the bottom would work for the more violent children."

Christopher Hollis replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"I absolutely agree. Withdrawal of affection is a terrible thing to use as a motivator with a child. There is not a child psychologist in the world that would tell you otherwise."

Unseen replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"I would never teach a child that it's never right to hit or never right to engage in violence. Sometimes these become necessary behaviors. Sometimes they are merely convenient. For example, my child might want to set himself up with a useful…"

"Strawman.  I didn't say never hit.  I didn't say all hitting is equal.  I'm simply saying that the punishment should be appropriate to the behavior, and hitting the child to teach them not to hit is…"

Reg The Fronkey Farmer replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"Yes, it depends upon their age. I think we should also hit very old people too. Just to get their attention that is. Sometimes they may not be paying attention at the road crossing so a gentle slap on the backside might help to save their lives. As…"

Unseen replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"It depends upon their age. Very young kids can, I think, benefit from an attention-getting pop on the bottom, not intended to cause maximum pain but just to get their attention and let them know that at any moment a bigger person can intervene. Once…"

"Do you think hitting the child is the best way to teach them not to hit?"

Logicallunatic replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"Soft parents let their kids get away with all kinds of trouble these days. If it's not nipped in the bud at a young age then kids will grow up thinking they can get away with anything. They need to be taught to respect their fellow human at a…"

Didnt recognize you, you look asian in that pic. Probably purposefully so. That's weird, try sticking a little piece of tape on the tab to hold it on or something.
