Husband, Father, Catholic ... also a corporate IT stooge, just waiting for the scorn and ridicule to be heaped upon me.

DanBeale ... seriously, is the world that black and white? You call that VIOLENCE? I specifically noted that the idea is NOT to be violent and not to punish, just to break the tantrum cycle. I told you

@Henry Our job is not to be liked, or loved, or to be their friend. Our job is to raise kids who are good citizens and good people. Respecting authority starts with respect for parental authority.

@WilliamGrobman I completely agree. Parenting is like sports, you get lots of attempts and you don't have to succeed on every attempt to be successful overall.

Stop struggling ... BY TAKING CONTROL. Don't struggle .. succeed. It all starts with parental authority. I agree that parents can't control kids; that isn't the goal. The goal is that the kids controls themselves. When they don't, the parents act.

comment Why does my toddler cry when he's put to bed?
@erik Seriously .. "blank despair" after 5 minutes of crying? I think you are being a bit over-dramatic. Until you get a grip on reality, your kid is going to have you wrapped around his/her finger. Even an hour or two a night or crying for a week isn't going to scar the kid for life or destroy any hope of happiness.

comment What would be a effective way to explain pornography?
locounu .. why is "loose" pejorative? It is a reasonable word choice as the antonym of "restrictive" or "tight". I suggest you are being overly sensitive. What term would you suggest?
