"Most parents COMPLETELY discourage spanking" and I don't believe spanking (or disciplinary beating) should be completely rejected. Some offenses require different punishments. Don't agree? eat me.
Thanks for simplifying for "us people"?
Dude, repetitive condensation aside, I said roughly the same thing you did (consequence good, aggression bad, inaction bad) only I tilted more in favour of not hitting the kid. I just threw down a thought and didn't direct at your comments or anyone else's. They're simply words for the ears, not ones I'm trying to put in your mouth.
Just to add though, reading hundreds of articles doesn't absolve you of assumption. You might want to try publishing something on the subject, before you preach your sound experience and wisdom.
