I remember growing up that the kids who could do no wrong according to their parents were the worst offenders.  Sadly today a lot of parents seem to feel their kids can do no wrong and we are seeing the consequences.

Being their friends, instead of being their "parents"??????????

Great synopsis.  Another is I don't want my kid to have to go through the discipline and I did.

I thought about this...maybe the kids are a mirror of their parents traits...there may have been a reason why the parents were exposed to "discipline"!

 

I know that not everyone's experiences are the same but I can honestly say, that, I never remember getting a spanking that I didn't deserve. However, to hear my sister talk, she was beaten unmercifully! Today, she is the one proverbial crazy person that every family has around. My mother always, said, "I would rather raise a dozen more boys than one more girl".

I feel the same way.  I got what I asked/pushed for.  Discipline is just one part of it.  I look and see a lot more good times we had.  Fishing trips, walks in the woods, ball games dad played with us not PICKED us up from.  It all adds up to a balance.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
