Your darling bambinos - how do you discipline them?

[ Edited ]
112 Replies 551 Views edited 13-06-2012

When they are naughty, are you:-

 

a) A smacker?

b) Naughter stepper?

c) You use another form of discipline?

 

Whether a) b) or c), please state what parameters you have decided to set for yourself for the way you have chosen to discipline YOUR children? 

 

Also, do you feel your views are the same as what you hear in the media and our present day society or do they differ slightly or greatly as to what is the correct way to discipline our next generation?

Indeed, so called 'gifted' children with high IQs, imo definitely do not get the kind of 'fast-track' attention they need from parents that maybe are at the less affluent ends of society and also the various institutions that need to know they exist in the first place.  



That can only work effectively with a joint approach by parents and teachers, with the latter often being expected to perform both roles. The role of parents is certainly fundamental in the education process, but they are rarely able to objectively establish where their own children fit in the broad spectrum of intelligence.

 

But that raises the much wider issue of what used to be known as 'streaming' in schools: the recognition that everyone is not equal, and that we need to be smarter in how we implement equality of opportunity. It should never have been taken to mean equality of outcome.

However, stupid people will breed, but then go on to have babies that are not stupid; regardless, it is all the more reason to assist those parents who may not have a lot of common sense.


Indeed, the role of government in this context is primarily to provide a clear framework within which people must operate, the resources and support that may be reasonably required for that to be understood and achieved, and the controls and sanctions necessary for those who cannot or will not comply.

 

Anything beyond that becomes interference, and telling people that they can't smack their children at all is an example of that.

I find this works quite well...

 

 

 

 

I also wonder how the distribution of parent/non-parent compares to the distribution of pro/anti smacking.

Your photo is unbelieveable, though I'm not sure I would have posted that in a public forum. Maybe you should have had one of those disclaimers - "no animals were hurt in the making of this film''.
In these hysterical and paranoid times regarding children I think you ran the risk of

for posting a photo like that! I actually found myself laughing at it and then wondering and feeling slighly guilty whether I even should have been laughing at it!
Would you please elaborate on "I also wonder how the distribution of parent/non-parent compares to the distribution of pro/anti smacking."
Are you being cynical and saying something along the lines of parents need to have eyes in the back of their heads to keep up with the antics that kids get up to these days, never mind disciplining them?!!!

I think what they mean, Logic, is they are curious as to how many parents support smacking as opposed to non parents. They are wondering if there is much hypocrisy in the college liberal camp.

Well the point of my question was really aimed at peope with children rather than those who haven't got any. For me at least, I don't think the views of people who don't have children are as pertinent as those that do.
I have an aversion to political-correctnes versus common sense and that is why I wanted to do a sort of 'litmus test' on the differing views of parents trying to do what must be the most difficult job in life to do effectively.

And I'd agree. Of course you don't need to have had children to have a valid opinion on the matter, but it is necessary to appreciate the gaps between parenting theory and reality.

Not remotely and struggle to see how you got from A to B.

 

As someone else posted, I'm just wondering (suspecting) if the pro camp is comprised of actual parents, while the anti camp is composed of non-parents with idealistic views of hypothetical parenting. Not in their entireties, but predominantly.
