Whoa? Beating Children! in Off Topic
I think he's trying to make a satiric point that with enough thought, a parent can find a balanced approach to discipline that doesn't involve either totally spineless parents or ruthless beatings.
Really? I read it more as a message to the whiny kids who have no clue how good they've got it.
But that's the beauty of Maddox... you get out of his page what you bring to it!
Remember: never take **** from your kids. You make payments on the house, utilities, their clothes, school, and their food. You own them. If they don't like it, they can move out. If you love your kids, love them enough to beat them so that they don't grow up to be idiots.
