Longtime readers know that I do not have any children (that I know of), and never plan to ever have children. So I know that in the eyes of many that automatically invalidates any opinion that I have on the issue of child-rearing, including the punishment of children. And, hey, I can see some truth of that. It is easy for me to say what you should or should not do, when it’s not something that I’ve ever faced.
But, on the other hand, while I have not ever raised a child, I have been a child. I’ve been punished as a child, so I know what did and didn’t work on me. Doesn’t that experience count for something?
