How can punishing kids be dangerous you ask?
Well, depending on the punishment, and the child’s reaction to it, the results can actually alter your relationship for a lifetime.
That may sound a little dramatic but, I will never forget the pain on one dad’s face as he stood up during a parenting seminar I was giving and said, “My father recently passed away and I’m mad. Not because he passed away, I’m mad because I didn’t get the chance to tell him how much I hated him sending me to timeout for everything! I must have been sent to timeout 15 times a day; it was like being in jail! The more I was sent to timeout, the more resolved I became not to change my behavior!”
