Apr 6th 2011 1:46PMEveryone says that for adult criminals, The punishment should fit the crime. Why is it then, that she same does not seem to hold true for children and teens??? If a few more of these molly-coddlers would step up and teach kids that there is a price to be paid for bad behavior. My mom and dad punished me appropriately when I was a kid and I grew up with a solid sence of right and wrong and the understanding that I could not simply do as I please on any occasion just because I felt like it or because I was "Mad at someone". I can assure you, that if I had dared to show myself like this little brat did (social issues or not) I would have been unable to sit myself down for a good while. pain is the posterior is a great motivator of good behavior. The faster some people realize that, the better off our kids will be. This little "monster in the making" got exactly what he deserved. I suppose some people would prefer him to be allowed to hit and stab people with sharp objects and put out an eye or possibly even kill someone, or harm himself, rather than take whatever action was necessary to calm his little wild self down. Children need strong guidance. They do NOT need to be allowed to think that they can do as they please. "Time Outs" and "Reasoning" with a child are a waste of time... they are CHILDREN... if they could be reasoned with in an adult manor they would be called ADULTS.
My dad, as well as my aunts and uncles, all diciplined us kids with a firm hand... and not one of us (17 in all) has been in any kind of trouble with the law etc in our entire lives.
Is this really so hard???
Feb 25th 2011 2:12PMHere Here! It's about time that the bit players get their due! How many times has the entire plot twist or most memorable moments in a big film hinged on a tiny little part? Does anybody remember "The Old Mother" from Brokeback Mtn?? So much feeling portrayed in only a couple of brief looks from this woman. EXCELLENT! She (and actors like her) emparted more feeling and information than many A-listers do in 2 hrs of screen time. Bring on the Bitties!!
Jan 3rd 2011 2:50PMWhy all the fuss?? The kid is only 5 years old... FIVE. Chances are this is a phase and in time he will most likely grow out of it. Only time will tell. Right now, it's not a gay or straight issue at all. His folks should be commended for letting the kid be who he wants for right now. Later on, when he discovers and better understands gender and his own identity, he'll be more understanding of others and most likely a happier more well adjusted adult because of this support he's received from his family. And, if he doesn't grow out of it... well then, its just who he is. I seriously doubt that the world will come crashing down because of any of this. Lighten up!
