    No, it doesn't.
    You are clueless.
    But we never smacked him so he didn't learn to hit others.
    Ah, he never saw anyone hit anyone. Never. So he never learned to
    hit. I think you need to see a shrink.
    violence. The boys who are violent have learned to be so from theadults around them. Most often they have been beaten by adultsand take out their rage on the weaker boys and the girls who cannotstop them.
    Generally I agree with you. I am against spanking because most
    parents can't do it right. However, if you believe the only reason
    kids can be violent is because they are spanked, you need help.

      You might not be aware, but if this is how your group raises children,we are going to need a whole lot more prisons in the future.Neither the research nor the anecdotal evidence from my 30 yearsof contact with children supports you in that. The people in jailwere more likely abused than brought up with positive parenting.
      True, but only because of the age of the jailbirds. Up until the 60's
      or 70's kids were hit as often as hugged. Since the 80's a larger
      number of kids have no discipline at all. We are seeing much larger
      juvenile crime rates as a result.
      Thanks to another poster for this link to the research on ParentEffectiveness Training principles.http://www.gordontraining.com/FamilyResearch.asp
      Thanks. I will take a look. Any advice on parenting is worth me
      taking a look at.

        If not speeding (and otherwise following the law) is such a good wayto avoid getting a ticket for a moving violation, how do you explaingetting one for an act which is not illegal (going through a yellowlight)? Are we supposed to know and follow all the nonexistent lawsas well as the real ones?
        The way it is explained here is that you are supposed to anticipateand when you see the yellow, you know you are going to have tostop. Too many people speed up to get through that yellow, butby the time they are actually in the middle of the intersection, thelight has turned to red.If the light turns red after you've passed that line and you're stillin the intersection...you just ran a red.
        Sorry that is not true. The law says if your car (even the smallest
        iota of it) enters the intersection prior to it turning red, you must
        proceed through.

          "Severe punishment" does not have to mean hitting, you know.
          Doesn't have to that is true and some punishments are worsethan hitting but punishment in general doesn't work the waypeople think it does. It may change behavior short term, butit teaches unintended lessons and it does not produce adultswho are self-disciplined.
          You truly are from mars.

            Hell, that doesn't mean anything. In the Denver area cars routinely run
            reds--I mean full-on reds, the traffic that has a green light is *waiting*
            for the last 4 cars to clear the intersection. Right in front of cops, and
            they don't do a **** thing about it. They're more interested in pulling
            over people who are speeding, even if their excessive speed is not posing a
            danger to anyone.

              I never thought I'd hear anyone say driving in the Bay Area was "sane"! All

                    Going through a yellow light is not a moving violation. You should have contested and had the case dismissed. Evidentally you do not live or drive in California. Perhaps in YOUR state it isn't a moving violation (it isn't in MA either) but it IS in CA. MarjorieLet me get this straight . . . I'm on a California road doing the speedlimit approaching an intersection with a green light. Five feet before Ienter the intersection, the light turns yellow. Having no choice, I safelyproceed through the intersection on a yellow light. Now I'm guilty of amoving violation?!? What does california think a yellow light is for? Whydon't they just have red and green, if the yellow means red? -Dave
                    Just because someone posts something doesn't mean it is true. Either
                    they are wrong, or CA is full of idiots.

                    OK, so we know the second part is true...

                          That was never a problem for me; my kids unbuckled (my younger daughter
                          especially) as soon as they could, but waited for me to open the door.
                          Of course, most of the doors in my old cars were hard to open! My kids
                          were MUCH older (like in the 10 - 12 year old range) before I had
                          problems with them jumping out of the car too quickly.

                          Besides, if your child obeys you that well, why not tell them that under
                          no circumstances were they to open the car door until you said it's OK?

                          I think you are seeing a problem where none exists. Some kids really
                          hate the feeling of car seats and seat belts. So we tell them they can
                          take them off ONLY WHEN THE ENGINE IS TURNED OFF. And we don't turn the
                          engine off until the car is parked in a safe space.

                              They're lying. THERE IS NO SUCH LAW.

                              Now, they may prosecute and convict you -- probably your best
