Yes. I believe you and I don't agree on some of the finer details. I am ok with that.

I can remember only a few times I was spanked....it's a good way to teach youngins FEAR, hurt, anger, and distrust....there are definately better ways to dicipline...and though pain make work...it also carries a whole pile of emotional hurt as well.

Yup, me too. I do think appropriate uses of behavioral interventions are frequently misunderstood, so I'm guessing we'll have this chat again some time soon. Vive la difference, yes?

I don't think I misunderstand it at all. I don't agree with it.

That wasn't directed to you personally. I have no idea whether you misunderstand them or not, but that's another topic for another thread. What I meant was on threads like this, and in general, people frequently misunderstand behavioral interventions, so imagine you and I will both be posting on these types of threads again.

I agree with this statement, but where it is written that in order to correct a child you need to hit him?

It isn't written MB, (and I say this with love), some kids just need the good old fashioned smack.


and I can start with my nephew.

all of us sitting around the kitchen table, he was standing behind me cracking a plastic cup, I turned around and said, ugh, stop it, its annoying....then when I turned around, he cracked it one more time in my ear just to be annoying.....

but I got the last laugh, my sister saw, and she grabbed the cup away from him gave him a good smack and made him go to his room...........as he pouted away, he looked at me and I stuck my tongue at him. I am still a baby. !!
