    Proper discipling of kids

    It is guaranteed that all studies that claim "corporal punishment" leads to abuse or anti-social behaviour use fuzzy definitions of "physical punishment" that do nothing to differentiate proper discipline from abuse.

    For example, one study says: "In an early modeling study, boys in grade one who had watched a one-minute video of a boy being yelled at, shaken..."

    No good parent recognizes yelling and shaking as generally useful tools in proper discipline. They show weakness and should be reserved exclusively for emergencies. I can't think of a single situation where shaking would be appropriate.

    Moreover, retrospective studies tend to ask for example drug addicts questions like: "Were you spanked?" Such respondents are never going to make any distinction between physical punishment and proper discipline. Also, they were obviously not exposed to any significant training, having thrown their lives away.

    It's easy to show correlation between "physical punishment" and abuse or anti-social behavior. What it is impossible to show is a correlation between "proper discipline" and such things, mostly because none of these studies would ever define proper discipline.

    These studies are done without any interest in considering proper discipline, which shouldn't be surprising for those that bow to baby-killing groups like the "un."

    always thought we could have avoided a ton of drama here if the thread starter had the power to exclude unwanted participants - of course, they (the thread starter) couldn't discuss and allow discussion of the barred poster.
