silly thinking

Giving kids time out teaches them that they're too awful to be interacted with and the home is better off with them away from you and quiet.

Putting child kidnappers in jail just teaches them that it's ok to force people into cages against their will.

Taking away your kid's toys away as punishment just teaches them that's it's ok to take things from people who can't fight back.

Sheez, I could do this all day. There may be a great, logical justification for not spanking kids, but you aren't stumbling onto it.

The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt
