im not trying to be testy, but do you really think that being consistent is the most important thing? it seems to me that being consistent is important, but consistently spanking your kids, legal as it is, could never in my book be beneficial. seemsl ike being consistent in flexibility and ability to recognize ones own mistakes is crucial. and not being attached to being 'right' but still consistently striving to fing the best answer, the most right answer, for your family is important. just my thoughts.
