    It’s not about what works for me. It’s about what works for my son. Violence isn’t the answer.

    I can respect that coming from there.I don't see you telling anyone else that yours is the only way.

    Even though we're anonymous online, I can't take a holier than thou posture knowing I have done it.

    And believe me, with the disrespect I have received from students, there have been times I wanted to just go off, but I know they get it at home so I maintain my cool.

    Children aren't real good at anticipating consequences tho'.Nor are lots of adults.

    no not a social worker. Nice guess though. Oh, and you seem to have more patience than you give yourself credit for.

    Sorry, but I'll never agree with it. I think it's abuse. I can't see any situation where I 'd agree that striking a child is the answer to bad behaviour.

    Of course, you're correct. All we can work with is what we have. And what we know. On the other hand, if I have time to beat the crap out of my kids, I have time to send them to their room instead. I can't imagine the plight of a single mother with limited resources, but there are many in that situation who make positive choices for their kids.

    My wife is a social worker. Her employment has more to do with dysfunction , neglect, and abuse.

    Im not sure what your back ground is but, if you are poo pooing professionals in this field, well, then I question your knowledge on the subject.

    Discipline is not violence. Anger is not discipline...defeats the whole purpose. Some never understand the difference.

    Oh it's not the only way. No.

    It is the most effective and least harmful way though, and there is a ton of information and collective clinical experience to support that. Really, all the research says the same thing, pretty much.

    Well I'm not convinced they all "get it at home." My ex was a career educator,and her brood were never used,abused,deprived,or neglected.Yet two of them were disrespectful to adults,constantly with teachers,manipulative,and well able to get around any so called "consequence."Anything denied them by one parent could be easily gleaned from the other.Or the grandparents.One was a thief and a liar that would frustrate a homicide dick.People with social work degrees only know some of the story.yet feel that theirs is the one true path.It is not.

    Some have never had to deal with problems that don't appear in books.

    Professionals do it for money and go home at five..The rest of us do what we do 24/7 because there are no other options.

    You are mistaken in reality. On this one issue. It don't get more real.
