Corporal Punishment. Good or Bad? --- I'll go first. The corporal punishment itself has great potential to help the kid stay in line. But the parents need to know how to do it properly. If you do it properly, it will greatly help you. But if you do it wrong, then you have problems. Here's what I think is good way to punish the kid with corporal punishment. --- 1. Always let the kid know what's coming. Tell him how many times you're going to hit. Where you're going to hit. 2. Let the kid know WHY he's getting spanked. 3. Let the kid agree to being spanked. These are just some things I go through before I hit my kids. But there are more... 4. Do not hit the kid when you're angry. Even if you're still angry, never make angry or scary face when you hit them. Hm... when I can think of more, I'll post them, but for now, that's it.
