CaptK: "Some of us take the good and discard the bad.."
Agreed, we do. I didn't say, "exactly the same". I said a "similar way"
"..based on your comments, you turned out great."
Thanks, My parents had great parents of their own and raised me right, accordingly. I don`t drink, smoke, do drugs, never been in prison or committed a felony. I graduated college and became a productive citizen of the USA.
"Your little list there shows you to be spiteful, impatient, and frankly, stuck in an unthinking stereotype mindset."
No, it means, like my parents I have a sense of humor and know how to use it. Also these parents didn`t "publicly mock the child", it was in the privacy of their own home.
"parents who indulge their emotions.." yell and beat their kids, they don`t use humor to defuse tantrums, your analogy is a complete fail.

RoboPatton, were you never a kid? Have you never thought about how you'd handle the situation if you were to have children? Just because I`ve never had a dog, I can`t give advice to a friend on how to cope with the death of a pet? Because I`ve never had a motorcycle, I can`t suggest to a friend a certain repair shop I`d heard of? It`s -advice-, and the advisee can take it how they`d like.

oh shut up everyone. She's 6 and throwing a temper tantrum. If anything they should tell that little boy not to laugh so damn loud right next to her. He`s the instigator, not the parenting methods here. Cheese`n rice.
