Jul 28th 2011 12:26AM Perfectly fine, my son always ask for the apples rather than fries anyhow.
Jun 21st 2011 4:29PM And another thing, people who are not on the side of spanking seem to assume that people who spank don't talk to their children. If my son does something wrong, not only will he know why he's getting a spanking but he will also be told the appropriate form of action to take next time. Don't assume because someone spanks their child that they simply do it out of anger. If you have to discipline your child and you feel that a spanking is in order, first you need to tell the child why they are getting the spanking. Then after the spanking you tell them again why, and then explain what they should have done so they know what to do next time. Then affirm that with love and let them know that you don't want to discipline them but you love them and do it it to keep them from getting hurt, etc.
Jun 21st 2011 4:19PM I was watching the video above about the Pros and Cons of Spanking. I found it interesting that she said according to "years of study" that the more children are spanked, they are more likely to have mental health problems like depression and anxiety, suicidal thoughts, more likely to be delinquents and have negative relationships with parents. The reason why I find that so interesting is because I see that behavior exhibited in children who AREN"T disciplined at all at home. My brother and I were spanked as well as friends that I grew up with and I have not seen that type of behavior exhibited in them all the years I've know them. I have a great relationship with my parents. I am mentally sound. In fact, I respect and appreciate them more now as an adult and have always had a great relationship with my parents. Why aren't we all depressed, suicidal delinquents on the edge of anxiety? My question is, were are they getting their statistics from? From children who are being actually being abused. Because, as its been said, abused and spanking are not the same.
Jun 21st 2011 3:54PM Dougalcandy, you are exactly right! When I was a child my parents spanked me when I did wrong. I was the type of child to rarely get into trouble. But when I did, a spanking set me straight and the matter at hand never needed to be discussed again. I knew better not to act up again. As one person mentioned there is a difference between abuse and discipline. My parents disciplined me. And now as an adult with a child of my own I feel that my parents did a wonderful job in rearing me. I think these days when people talk the talk about not spanking their children it leads the children to believe that 'my parents can't touch me so I can get away with anything.' But as you said it does them a great disservice because in life people aren't going to treat you that way. People aren't just going to pay you lip service and let you get away with anything. You would never be able to keep a job or live in this society expected to get what you want all the time. Now, I'm not saying that every child needs to be spanked. In fact, my son rarely needs spanking. He's a very well behaved child. And yes, maybe after a certain age a child needs to be talked to instead of spanked. But honestly, this PC world is really going to leave a world of trouble for our children when they grow up.
Apr 12th 2011 2:30AM Talk about a glutton for punishment. He clearly has mother issues. Has he learned anything?
Oct 13th 2010 12:16AM I unfriend people who constantly post vulgar language. Its one thing to say it but do you have to type it too?
Sep 6th 2010 4:23AM Um ... just go to DSW. Find your own shoes. Try on as many as you want. If you don't want to buy any just make sure you put them back where you found them. Problem solved. I really prefer that method of shopping because it cuts out the middle man and you don't have to spend time fighting to find a sale rep and hunkering him down from other customers.
Sep 1st 2010 7:05AM I agree. Something is up with Teresa. She has anger management issues. She claims that its not her but just how she acts around Danielle. But I'm not buying it. If anything she's the dangerous one. Danielle on the other hand just likes to act ask if she has the mob backing her but will do nothing. Teresa seems as if she had the right weapon in her hand she could get violent. She goes off to easily. Thats the one I would have fear for her children.
Apr 18th 2010 1:58PM I didn't think she needed defending anyway. Its a no brainer. Most people if the opportunity came their way, whether they have talent or not, would ride the band wagon of fame. And she has eight kids and she's a single mother now. She is doing what she has to do to make sure she has a roof over her head and food on the table for all nine of them. What, because John left and there is one less person to feed things all of a sudden got better? LOL. I think someone needs to defend John because he is a punk for leaving his wife with eight kids for another woman. That's just something you don't live down. If you have eight kids with a woman you are obligated to stay with that woman for the rest of your life. You don't walk away because of your emotions and forget about the greater good. Now he has the nerve to want custody and money after he decided to leave his family for a sports car and a woman. You've got to be kidding me! I'd like to call him a whole bunch of obscene names but you can already imagine where that would go.
Feb 2nd 2010 1:52PM Even though it was one test subject, I get where they are going. If they tested my few 88 friends on facebook I am sure they would come to the same conclusion. It would be more like maybe 10 true friends rather than 88. Most of them are from high school. Some that we never were friends in high school. Some that I never talked to unless we were in class or forced to work together on an assignment. Some that I didn't like back then. And one that no one is able to figure out who he is but we have 20 of the same friends on our list (who is Daniel?) I have three or four family members. A co worker or so. A couple who are just there because I wanted farmville or cafe friends and I don't even know at all. And then the few 10 who I make sure I keep in contact with or when I am in my hometown I see and hang with. I think the questions are logical for most people on facebook. We just don't have as many friends as we think. We may know a lot of people but who doesn't? Doesn't make us all friends.
