I believe in a partial spank approach

I think as a teacher/parent/authority one puts a child in time-out to teach the pupil to think about his/her actions and associated consequences.

One spanks to communicate fear rather than logic in particular scenarios.

To me the difference is:

A child breaks a rule which does not place him/herself or anyone else in danger - timeout

A child doesn't listen to warnings and engages in behavior which places him/herself or others in danger - Spank


I don't expect a 2, 3, 4-year-old kid to understand fire or traffic... Until they're old enough to be taught to understand it I believe they should be conditioned to fear it.

At their inceptions, the #Liberty, #OccupyWallStreet and #TeaParty movements all had the same basic goal... What happened?
