        I guess ski bums can't do basic math...

          Hopefully you understood that my point was most parents who spank do
          so out of anger, which is not right.

            So, back to the point. One claims crime is on the decrease, yet we
            have more people in jail, more jails being built...

            Sure seems like crime is up.

              No, prison terms for crime is up; it does NOT necessarily follow that
              crime itself is up. Other explanations include that people are being
              caught more often, that prosecutors are doing a better job of making
              their cases, that crime is more likely to result in longer prison/jail
              sentences, and that what is considered a crime has changed. There may
              be other possible explanations, but "more people in prison" does NOT
              mean "more crime" -- that is only one possible explanation.

                    "Severe punishment" does not have to mean hitting, you know.
                    Doesn't have to that is true and some punishments are worse than hitting but punishment in general doesn't work the way people think it does. It may change behavior short term, but it teaches unintended lessons and it does not produce adults who are self-disciplined.
                    You know, Dorothy, this kind of sweeping generalization is not only
                    wrong, but it also provides support for those people who disagree with
                    your ideas.

                    In general, I think you're right. Punishment isn't the best approach
                    and it does have unintended and undesireable consequences.

                    On the other hand, it does work the way most people think it does.
                    Your assertion that it doesn't is based on a false idea about what
                    other people think. It does change behavior short term and sometimes
                    that's sufficient justification for the slight adverse effects it may
                    also produce. And it does produce adults who are self-disciplined. I
                    know plenty of self-disciplined adults who were reliably punished as
                    children.

                    I use punishment on occasion with my own children. Never severe,
                    never coporal, but I don't think it matters much. The negative
                    consequences are still there. And sometimes, the short-term behavior
                    change is worth it. The long term behavior change happens as well
                    because we're actually pretty good parents. We talk to out children,
                    explain our rules, explain why we want to behave the way we're asking,
                    notice when they do things rights, etc.

                      I spent some time last summer back in the Boston area. Bay Area driving is truly much, much saner!
                      I TOTALLY agree. We spend a couple of weeks *every* summer inside 128
                      in Boston, and every year I think I'm taking my life in my hands the
                      second I get into a car. Not only is Boston the most insane place to
                      drive other then Italy that I've ever been in, but the roads suck, the
                      signage is worse, and people have absolutely no patience. You get
                      *used* to having signs announcing what intersecting is upcoming when
                      you drive in CA. You get *used* to having block numbers on the street
                      signs. You get *used* to having roads with 4 or 5 lanes so that you
                      can take a left or a right without blocking traffic. And most of all,
                      you get used to following the laws because everyone else does.

                      Driving in the bay area is a lot easier now that the bubble has burst
                      and the traffic is lighter, but it's always been easier than Boston,
                      even in the bubble heyday. For one thing, they have metered onramps,
                      which really do help spread out the traffic. And they have diamond
                      lanes, which allow people who carpool to get a break. Neither are
                      found in Boston. Plus, the constant construction in Boston tends to
                      really get old fast.

                        Actually, I know someone else who CLAIMED she got a ticket for going throught a yellow light. She had other mental problems, also. Seriously, there is only one ACTUAL violation that might be considered going through a yellow light -- that's the anti-gridlock law which specifies that if you enter an intersection, there must be room to clear it by the time your light becomes red.
                        Uh DUH. That's exactly what I said, maroon!

                          What are you talking about? Construction in the Boston area is not
                          constant. It only happens from 7-10AM and 4-7PM Monday through Friday. You
                          won't see any construction going on outside of weekday rush hours. It's
                          hardly what I'd call "constant". -Dave

                                Positive parenting doesn't need punishment and punishment generally
                                doesn't work well in conjunction with it because the attitudes are
                                antithetical.

                                Punishment and Rewards work *only* to change behavior in the short
                                term. They don't work to produce self-disciplined adults which is
                                what most parents are after. While used *very sparingly,* they may
                                not have a huge negative effect, they are unnecessary and insufficient
                                to the task at hand.

                                Positive parenting is NOT the opposite side of the behaviorist coin -
                                that is, using rewards.

                                Try Parent Effectiveness Training and see. Try reading Adele Faber
                                and Elaine Mazlish who changed their attitude through PET and then
                                and eventually wrote How To Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So
                                Kids Will Talk.
                                Your extreme view simply does not work, asmuch as you would have us believe that it adheres to a proven standardof parenting that it does not even closely approximate.

                                My own two children are grown. My son has a daughter and a new
                                baby on the way. I have taught high school math, been involved with
                                girl scouts with my daughter throughout her childhood, with soccer
                                with my son throughout his childhood and teach preschool currently.

                                I am a parent, a teacher and a grandparent. Exactly what would you
                                have them arrest me for? Please be specific.
