Yes, I use similar methods

I always look for positive ways to shape development and try to minimize what I consider negative coercion.

Although I don't use a spanking policy, I simply don't want to dictate to others what is best. I can't say what is best for anyone else and there still exists contradictory research and studies such as the following.

I know if you search you will find contradictory view points on whether Swedens spanking bans have been a success or failure that made problems worse.

Spanking has not been necessary in my parenting and I have had good results without it. Yet I'm not wanting to ban it by government force. Simply want people to be aware of all methods out there so they can make intelligent decisions for themselves.
