children wd never be reomved for jst a smack- but at present its incredibley difficult to remove them at all- often all that can be prooved is smacking, and the parents are protected- there are currently 1+ children killed each wk by their parents in the uk, almost all of whom are known to ss first and yet not removed because they can only proove reasonable pyhsical punsihement- change the law and these childrens lives are more likely to be saved

the uk are jst as backward when it comes to changing this law dispite the campaigns involved   i do find it strange though that when it comes to discussions revolvin around school shootings that corproal punishment in us schools isnt the first thing on the agenda. id love to see a study of the states where this is used and if it corrolates to school shooting occurances
i dont like the language involved- difficult, hard etc- these arnt words id use to describe my super intensive super highly sesntive full of life girls.  i dont like her statements of not allways consitant, not allways demanding respect- to be being consistant or demanding respect arnt compatabile with parenting to me- respect is something i give them and hope to earn from them, consitancy goes out the window in favour of treating them as individuals who have individual...
