Shepherd their heart

Personally, I discipline for the purpose of shepherding/directing my child's heart. This includes teaching and encouraging them to reject foolishness/immaturity through spanking. I don't want to raise a "rule-keeper" who just conforms their outward behavior to whatever force is being applied to them at that particular moment. I want them to learn how to make wise and mature decisions on their own... and to vote like me too! ;-)

I agree with the prior posts that Libertarianism applies more-so to politics, and especially to the adult population vs. minors.
