So today's parents are faced with a huge issue it seems. We're not allowed to spank our child on the behind with our bare hand because that's abuse. We're not allowed to raise our voices to get our child's attention because that's abuse. We're not allowed to put them in timeouts in a corner because that's abuse. We're allowed to sit them down and "discuss" why what they're doing is wrong, but have you ever tried that with a 2yo? Nonsense.
So, great gurus of discipline and child rearing... WTF are we supposed to do to help get our children to behave that actually WORKS? If you keep taking away all of our options and claiming they're all abuse, then what are we supposed to do?
