Quote: Spanking, when done in a controlled manner, is not beating. Yes, a "controlled spanking" with a wooden spoon or paddle, hard enough to hurt and cause tears, is considered a beating. He also recommmends, as I quoted, a thump on the head or rap on the knuckles.
I agree and yet we see that again and again on this board and I have seen it with my sister and her dh as well. He got all hepped up that their 2 kids "needed" Sunday school in the denom of his youth when they got to be 4 and 6 yrs old or so. I think that lasted about a yr, if that, as my sister is an atheist and would have nothing to do with it, so it was up to him to get the kids up and dressed and fed and out the door on Sunday morning. Of course, after a bit, puttering...
Brava! I love it! I hope you change his mind!!!

More quotes, juxtaposed with studies and recommendations of abuse victims support organizations. http://www.nospank.net/perlin2.htm Here's a doozy: Quote: Originally Posted by Dobson "Real crying usually lasts two minutes or less, but may continue for five. After that point, the child is merely complaining... I would require him to stop the protest crying, usually by offering him a little more of whatever caused the original tears."

Yet, it took science a long time to be allowed to say, the earth is round, the earth is a tiny sphere in a huge cosmos, not the...
My 2 dds read books and magazines for pleasure and instruction. My ds does not. He reads when he is playing video games. He is more of a kinesthetic learner.
