Avoid, if at all possible.

It doesn't, but you don't need to physically punish the kid. Why not just say, "Well then boy, no Xbox for you in one week."Well, discipline is "training to act in accordance with rules".
So... what if the child doesn't obey you? What if he doesn't listen to your talking? What if you take his toys away and he misbehaves even more? Then what?
I'm just saying, being peaceful doesn't always work.
lol, I just said, what if he doesn't listen,It doesn't, but you don't need to physically punish the kid. Why not just say, "Well then boy, no Xbox for you in one week."
or how about
"Kiddo, Why dont you stay in your room for the rest of the evening?"
So, what makes you think he will listen more because you slap him? I think that would just make him even more disobedient.l
All but the last part is just terrible parenting, lol. That's saying "as long as the kid doesn't bother me, I'm fine" and you don't even care about them, ha.If you don't want a kid to have access to virtual things, it's called a password.
If you don't want a kid to have access to something physical, it's called a key.
A good slap or spank every so often will normally get the massage across so you really shouldn't use anything more.
If your kid is acting nice and all but is still the devil at heart, it doesn't really affect you since he's still acting nice.
Naturally if your trying to teach your kid that doing something is dangerous for them then just let them try something similar and when they hurt themselves they can make the connection.
not let them experiment with dangerous/potentially dangerous things in the first place, rather then letting them do that and then after they lose a finger/etc. say "did you learn anything from that"?what are you supposed to do?
so basically physical punishment lead to yelling back, which will turn into fighting back.. etc.esb said:Even though now a days I yell back or w/e
That's what I've been saying...that's why I said to let them do something similar, let (note that I say let, not encourage, kids will do these things by them selves, all you have to do is a small lack of action for a short period of time) them get a small cut.
they will make the connection cutting=bad and cutting off finger would=very bad.
being over-protective really isn't good. being under-protective isn't good either, but a little bit of slight pain will let them get scared of pain (which to my understanding is a good thing).
I say physical punishment should be used in small amounts when kids are young, to help establish your dominent role. a spank or two won't make a kid dislike you.
if you managed to raise your kids to the point where they don't care about money and life as a Buddhist monk, then I don't think you have to worry about them misbehavingAnd what happens when that motivation goes away.
agree.If i can, i would. But in today's society, its not socially acceptable to hit a kid out in public. But if i had to. I Would.
Chastisement is different from hitting. people seem to mix the two up.
I don't see why.and does this only apply to boys, or would you hit girls as well? should girls get "special treatment"?
there is a very fine line between the two, one that is stepped over very often - so if you encourage physical punishment, your also indirectly causing more abusive situationsAnd for the last time, this won't work if you confuse like physical punishment and abuse.
because it's a helpful aid, yet one that you don't need to use forever either, think of it like a grammer book or something, once you learn it you don't need the book anymore, yet you can continue to apply it's teachings to other things, and money because it's a good thing to teach children rather then have them not worry about money and later they end up in financial problemsThen why even begin to use money in the first place, or a "point system"
a parent slapping a kid? and slapping is what you mean by "physical punishment"?Nothing wrong with slapping in public. You see it all the time.
