Takes too much time.
Which is fine because I do not have children.
That's doesn't work for every one and parents get tired of repeating themselves.
Well, like I said, that doesn't work everyone and as much as some people don't like it some if these kids need that belt.
Maybe they are tired of explaining
pfft... many kids dont work that way
No u are wrong.. Parents control kids and mould them..
Why do we see kids throw trantrums in malls.. It is wrong upbringing at the beginning...
*opens a window*
Because, sometimes, children aren't reasonable beings.
They get that from being children.
Yes, maturity does come with age. How many children have you raised?
No, its not. How does that bear on our discussion?
I agree. I thought we were discussing discipline with young children. Hitting a teenager is counter productive. Sometimes, parents can be provoked into doing it by unacceptable behavior.
It isn't always the fault of the parent. Sometimes the worst parents have the best children and vice versa. You can't say that development is 100% nurture and 0% nature. Further parents are not the only influence on a child's life.
What you are failing to take into consideration, I think, is that parents are human. They are fallible. They get tired, they get sick. They have needs of their own. Further, there comes a point when children need to learn and grow without a parent hovering over them every moment.
Why are you such an angry person? I've engaged in a polite conversation with you. I never said there was no such thing as bad parenting. You say I make raising a child seem more difficult than it is? How many have you raised? What experience do you have? I would say that you lack maturity.
cause they dont have the patience to explain it
I'm not opposed to physical discipline. Some kids just don't respond to verbal warnings/discipline.
Agree.. Talk and reason out. Hitting doesnt work for long term in fact it causes the child be rebellious. Being parents are not just mumy or dady. There must be some quality in them to bring up a well brought up children..
My pleasure to share. I may not be the best parent as yet but i have brought up my two 17 and 16 yo daughters very well.. Up todate, they are my primary concerns..
I am a parent, and I clearly remember being a kid. When you explain, until you are blue in the face, and are ignored, it is time for stronger action.
I don't believe you are in a position to judge that.
I have seen many bad parents. Those that impose no discipline on their kids are the worst. Those kids grow up with no respect for anyone or anything. They have not enough self discipline to obey societies rules or the laws of our land. Our prisons are full of them. So are our welfare offices, because they are to undisciplined hold a job.
I agree, but you are forgetting that kids can sometimes be wilfully disobedient even though they know it is wrong...there has to be a solid line where something more than talk is the consequence i.m.o
quite possibly...I have no children, and I would be no serial child beater as a parent..but my children would know there is that line that should not be crossed with daddy, or else! and I would like to think they would be intelligent and well-rounded enough to never even want to try and find that line :-)
having the children know in a loving environment exactly who is in charge is exactly what I am saying
When a child doesn't understand, explanation is required, not discipline. When they know and willfully cross the line, discipline is required. However, you don't have to hit a child, ever.
Just easier that way
Cause ive had 8 beers and I wanna hit something goddamit.
Forgive them, for they know not what they do
