[rant]<br><br>"Nicholas! Nicholas! Get your but out here."<br><br>Enduring 20 minutes of my neighbors yelling at their kid to get him to stop doing whatever he is doing and get in the truck, makes me want to go over and smack the kid in the back of the head. And then the parents head.<br><br>My Dad would have smacked me in the head and pulled me out to the car by my ear if I didn't listen the first time. He never did, cause I knew he would do it if I didn't listen.<br><br>Some people need a good ole fashion smack in the head.<br><br>[/rant]<br><br>
The biggest problem with child discipline is that people have stopped beating their kids. Kids today have no respect for authority because they haven't been made to respect it. <br><br>My hunch is that if you took little Nicholas out back and beat the living sh!t out of him the next time he didn't get in the truck, you'd have no problems from then on. <br><br>
I hear ya !!<br><br>well you don't have to get physical with kids... even though it might be very gratifying.<br><br>with our kids we knew what they liked best - discipline is take that away for X amount of time and STICK to it.. that's where many fail they give in to whining and complaining -they're "lazy parents".<br><br>Now if they broke that or resisted - then we might get physical... <br>but using that as the 1st resort is not good. it's being "lazy parents".<br><br>sometimes the "fear" of it is better and more controlling that the actual "busting".<br><br>David (OFI)<br>
My hunch is that if you took little Nicholas out back and beat the living sh!t out of him the next time he didn't get in the truck, you'd have no problems from then on. <br><br><br>And that's how we got kids in our care. Parents not knowing when to stop and actually beating the living [censored] out of the kid. <br><br>Any moron can hit another person. But a good parent would know about discipline and boundaries. Spanking is one thing....beating the living [censored] out of them is abuse. You should come see the kids that I work with.<br><br>
Steph and I were out to dinner last week when we encountered the family from hell. Mom, Dad, two of their friends .. plus two 8-ish girls and a toddler little boy. <br><br>The girls wouldn't stay seated .. up/down/up/down/up/down/up/down .. and as a bonus, they were constantly fussing with the boy, who was squealing and shrieking non-stop. All this under the "watchful" eye of the "parents", who were doing absolutely nothing about it.<br><br>Now, I'm usually the more vocal one, but when Steph hit her breaking point, she whirled around, shot laser beams at the mother and politely said .. <br><br>JESUSCHRIST!!! C'MON ALREADY !!!!<br><br>Mom and the children went outside ... Our waitress came over a little later and whispered "thank you."<br><br>Doubling off what you said, JonnyCat, my father never stood for poor behavior in public. There are five sons in our family and never once was it acceptable to misbehave, at any time, in any situation. <br><br>And we never did ... <br><br>****************<br>
