oh my! After reading the posts, guess I was thinking along 'other' lines of punishment. As a child I rebelled against any punishment my parents threw at me. I respected them but not if punishment surfaced. Now, welllll..I tend to enjoy punishment....

Many of us as children were availed of corporal punishment and lived to tell the tale. We are told to spare the rod we spoil the child. It is a grand thing to use as a tool in correction in children. I have seen the disrespect grow in the schools when spanking was removed form the methods of correction. There is a value to it and one that should not be ignored.

No, I don't believe in corporal punishments, especially for kids...I believe in preventive discipline, gentle persuasion, explaining things even before they ever happen, and the like. Corporal punishments, if ever, should be the last resort for kids who are really mean, cruel, and bullies...otherwise, kids should be disciplined as early so as to prevent behavior problems from occuring...
