What ever became of those days when parents knew how to make their kids behave?
When I was growing up back in the age of the Dinosouse when I misbehaved I was given plenty of opportunity to "Straighten up" before I paid dire consequences. If I didn't the result useually ended up with my rubbing my ass and crying. That isn't the case today as everyone knows and, look at what it's done to today's kids.
I'll admit it, my father went overboard sometimes when beating my ass and, it left me with emotional scars BUT I got the message too. The message being; "I got what I deserved for disobeying" I've grown into what I personally feel is a Responsible Adult, one who respects authority and, I stive to be a Peace Loving person. Which I can see isn't where most of the kids today are headed.
You can't spank your kids today for fear of prosicution. Child Psychologists and others in conjunction with Lawmakers have outlawed it. The only recourse open to you these days it to Yell at them and, we all know what good yelling does now don't we? Yelling can also be construed as "Abuse" especially if you use what can be considered as "Hurtful" tones or words, so in many cases that's not even an option for disaplining your kids. What are we to do then? Unfortunately there is little we can do accept stand by and watch our kids grow into undisaplined, unruley and, more likely than not an irresononsible adult. An adult who more often than not ends up using drugs, comminting major crimes and ends up in prison and why, because parents today aren't allowed to use proper disabline like they did when I was growing up.
I say, "Screw the laws! If you child gets out of control, turn them over your knee and bust that little ass they carry on them". I promise you it will only sting for a few minutes and it'll certainly work in straightening their acts up.
