I remembered being spanked a lot as a girl. My father spanked his children for any infraction, ranging from being disrespectful to not eating our food, because that's how things were being handled when he was a child. spanking is too light a word. we call them "whuppings". My brothers get hit...

ConsA brat who can't be controlled

I must begin this opinion by saying that I speak as someone who has no children and who will never be having any children (due to a hysterectomy). So I am writing this only from the viewpoint of someone who used to be a child! Some would say I still am, but that’s another story. I will...

ProN/A

ConsN/A

I am writing this from the point of view of an adult, who was abused as a child. I haven't had the pleasure of having children yet, so I cannot understand the possible difficulties that may arises from 'problem' children. I would like to start off by giving an example of child psychology. A...

ProYou may get one that doesn't tantrum

ConsI just want my own child to behave!

I was at the supermarket with my daughter the other day (as usual) and I realised that she had a dirty nappy. As we headed towards the toilets I noticed the sign on one of the doors - "baby changing room". I have seen this sign many times before, but on this occasion an alternative meaning of...

Conssome parents go over the top

Ok so the children are playing up again and you are getting well and truely fed up with it so what do you do? Well the question is easy but the answers are not quite so.... Firstly you will have to decide if that child is really being naughty . Sometimes it can just be a misunderstanding. A...

“Where do you draw the line?”

ProWell behaved Children

ConsUpset children and parents

My daughter is 3, and I do not profess to know all of the answers in regard to discipline, and to be honest I do not think this subject is black or white, just very grey. Each child will react to different forms of discipline, depending on their personality, but I still think there is a line...

ProAbsolutely None

ConsMost Likely Emotionally Scarred for Life

If you've read my previous opinions, you probably know by now that I am a receptionist/secretary in an ophthalmologist's office. On Thursday, which coincidentally was full moon for this month, I saw two incidents of abuse. The first was upsetting enough, but the second literally broke my heart...

ProA small smack won't hurt your child

ConsIt might go further

As a parent of four completely different natured daughters, I feel that I have some kind of practical experience on the subject. Aged 9, 8,3,and 1, you don’t need to be a brain surgeon to work out how hectic our household is. My littlest girls are really quite easy at the moment to disciple...

“Smacking does it work”

published 03/08/2001

Pro-

Cons-

When I was little, i was smacked when i was naughty, I do not think it worked at all it would make me resentful to my parents. And instead of loving my parents i would be scared of them, when i was bad or if the teacher at school wanted to say something critical about me at Parents evening. This...

ConsSome use physical punishment

Some fortunate parents are blessed with children who never seem to give them a minute’s bother. Some more unfortunate parents have kids who seem to be a trial from the day they are born, who drive their poor parents to distraction. For the majority of us, our kids drop somewhere in the...

“Disciplining Children”

ProMakes you a better Parent

ConsNone I suppose

I am father of two kids. Disciplining children is my prime concern as for anyother parent. For the same concern and for grooming my children in a better manner, I have read about it where ever I could find some material, have thought about it and have consulted and observed some other parents...

Disciplining children? Bloody hell, a chance to take the biggest piece of wood you could ever imagine and thrash it unerringly into the school of one of the demons such that it would never darken your doorstep again - what a dream, what an absolute bloody dream.... Okay, rampant hysteria time...

Prosee opinion

Conssee opinion

When I was a child my parents smacked me for bad behaviour. I used to receive one slap for every word of the reprimand, so the scenario generally went something like this, “How (slap) many (slap) times (slap) do (slap) I (slap) have (slap) to (slap) tell (slap) you? (slap)…” and...

Conssee opinion

Children learn by example dont they? Well its certainly explains a lot of childrens behaviour, doesn't it? Most of us will be well aware of the way we were disciplined as a child. Some say that it didnt do them any harm, others say that is has a lasting effect on their lives and on how they...
