    It sat there--until the OP answered it herself.

    Right--definitely more...

    At least you didn't toss out "BBBB" (flibbertigibbet, which has actually been used) or some gawd-awfully impossible combination that sits there for weeks!

    They are ultimately just different approaches for restricting behavior. Some kids might be immune to ordinary punishment, or strong willed enough that ordinary punishment isn't going to do much anyway (although direct physical punishment is also an attack on someone's dignity)

    In general, bad positive reinforcement is as damaging as incorrect use of negative reinforcement. Humans mainly adapt to their environments - not behave intelligently - but what adaptation makes sense and seems to be advantageous?

    Like, if you have one of those parents who feels remorseful after punishing you, pushing their buttons till they punish you enough to become remorseful and more loving - might be a practical local adaptation...

    (Ultimately, you need to get a lot of the emotion out of these things to get good results - whether you use positive or negative reinforcement. If you don't have clear principles, or clear goals, your results are going to be unpredictable)

    Don't they teach anything in schools nowadays...? FYI: (And NOT the best web site, either, but it'll have to do.)

    Being able to fight, to push back against people who will not respect your boundaries, has merit too (and it adds to your confidence some - knowing that you can fight back if you have to).

    But anyway, corporal punishment... The main thing about punishment is that the rules have to be clear and consistent. However, often we find that the enforcers are acting out of (often unrelated) emotion, and lack consistency... So your results might not be very consistent... But if your parents don't know who they are and what's good for you, them not spanking you isn't going to save you from not being great.

    I suppose I'm biased but the INFJs here seem very nice. I can be sarcastic but I try very hard not to be mean.
