This is a FOOTBALL thread. Obey your own rules and if you want to discuss new age parenting start your own thread about it
Stupidity is contagious. You go girl and F your lame ass relatives I say a bunch of old, lame asses whining about a kid with too much energy. Boo f'n hoo!

Now seriously, you guys are mixing topics though. Kids given too much self esteem is another issue totally unrelated.

Rich and some think corporal punishment is effective. It is not. A quick "attention slap" is not an answer either.

Appropriate read for you rich

Re: Happy football is starting up!!

I'm done raising kids. Tell it to somebody that cares.

Now, come here and rant all you want about how Jerry must have been smacked around too much as a kid because he's the worst owner/GM in the NFL, otherwise I'll have to ask a moderator to ban you from the thread for constantly going off topic

That article is about abuse, and I'm totally against abuse.
A 'proper' spanking, or swat on the butt, is not the same as abuse.
Talking to, and even yelling at, your child, depending on the child, is very often ineffective.
When I worked at Wal*Mart, every day some parent would have a child screaming that they wanted something, and the parent would try to 'talk them down'.
It almost never worked.
What I noticed usually did work was a crack on the butt, or even just a raised hand. It got their attention. THEN the talking would work.
Again; I hate an actual abuser, but if the only way to get your kids attention is the threat of, or a 'tiny' slap on the butt, where's the harm?
I'm not advocating hitting your child hard enough to leave marks, but a 'red butt' from a spanking, in my opinion, isn't abuse.
One handed typing is too derned slow.

That's the thing though, Rich, to many people, a 'spanking', in their minds, is exactly the same thing. While to others, like yourself, it's totally different. (getting faster)

I'd have removed the kid, or not taken in the first place. But spanking wouldn't help matters at all. Get real! Not every wild kid is the fault of parents. Use some brainpower ��
ADHD?
I was diagnosed with ADD. Want to know why? I'm sure you do.......
When I was little I liked to focus on what I wanted to focus on, and I didn't want to hear about anything else when I did.
Doctor claimed I had ADD. Mom said, "She's simply hard-headed."
Refused to give me any drugs. When I didn't want to pay attention she would grab my hand, give it a squeeze and say, "Meech, I'm talking to you!" and if I still didn't listen she'd slap my hand or my butt once, and it got my attention.
Didn't take long for me to figure out, 'when mom or dad are talking to me, pay attention!'
I don't remember that, truthfully, but mom told me about it many times. She thinks that was an early sign of how I focus on things I want to learn. Once I get it in my head, I don't deviate unless I really have to.
It wasn't 'attention deficit', it was 'concentrated attention'.
My point? As usual, a little digression; but I think all too often a child is diagnosed with ADD or ADHD or whatever alphabet soup, when they are simply being a kid.
If your 5 year old is hyper, good, he should be. But if he doesn't listen, you need to do something to get his attention, not give him drugs and plop him in front of the TV like a zombie.

Oh, pass on that. I had a Nun in school that didn't think the laws applied to her. Never got slapped with the thing myself. I was too scared of it to ever do anything to make her want to.

Re: Happy football is starting up!!

Fear is good.

Talk about child abuse. Let's slap an alphabet soup diagnosis on them and pump them full of drugs to "control" it.

Sister Mary-Jerome.
I still get the shakes when I think about her. And that was 15 years ago.

Exactly. Did I actually have ADD? Who knows for sure, and I don't care. I can be a little nuts these days, but I'm glad they didn't dope my ability to focus away with drugs. Had they done that I don't think I could have accomplished half of what I did in school. At least, not as quickly, and 'easily' as I did.
I have a friend who's son was diagnosed ADHD. Poor kid just sits there staring at Sesame Street, practically drooling. He was hyper, she couldn't deal with him, now he's a rug ornament.
I hate it.

Speaking of drugs, my arm started killing me when I was pacing dictating to Jeff, so I took a pain killer and I'm feeling it.
Nice to be on the same side of an argument for once, Rich. LOL
Bedtime for Meechy.
Maybe this thread will get back to football, eventually. LOL
