This has always been a difficult subject with me. . . to give you a little back ground info. . . My parents dabbled in all forms of punishment. . . from aggressive to passive. . . Paddlings being among the worst physical, all the way to reading from the Bible as a passive. We (my sibling and I) were also made to sit knee to knee, elbows on knees, and nose to nose when we fought, sitting on the floor cross-legged for a half hour, if we made any noise that time would increase. . .there were many other "inventive" forms of punishment. . . but anyhow.
I feel there is a very thin line between punishment and abuse. . . where do you draw the line and how do you instill punishment with out going too far? What is to far? And what punishments do you use, and why do they work? How do they work?
** There is no wrong answer. . .Please don't judge!!**
