I like the way you think, except I dont think my dad should be publicly tourtured for spanking me.
I love my dad, he just came from a differnt way of bringing up kids. Apparently spanking a kid with a belt is encouragement for them to do what you say. I was against my parents every day of my youth until I moved out. Spanking didnt do **** for me.
Apparently he thought kids are like dogs and you can train them with force, BAHAHAHA. I still remember when he actually made a reference to the psychology behind his parenting. I remember him 'training' our hunting dog with a choke chain instead of love. I remember him making a reference that this obviously didnt work on his kids.
I may be 27 now, but I still take delight in the fact that I am nothing what my parents had envisioned their kids would be like if they "raised them properly"
I think my parents are damned fools sometimes, but Im sure they'd say the same about me. Either way they support and love me regardless of my decisions in life, and thats what tells me they are good parents. I dont think spanking your kids, or even playing "Im the boss" is a good way to raise kids. They will just rebel against you. I know I did.
