Taking parenting advice from Enyart is like taking dietary advice from John Candy.
I do not trust men who hit children with belts. Men must be very careful with discipline.
When I was a very young child my father, who was a strapping six feet one inch, would spank me. My lips turned blue and I couldn't breath from the shock of it. It taught me one thing, how to hate with a pure undiluted single-mindedness. I lived to leave!
It took me years to unburden myself from that painful emotion.
