Larry Tomczak: On child raising, we must 'shape the will without breaking the spirit'

Spare the spanking, spoil the child, people who love their kids discipline them early on. Coddling them turns them into parent haters, then self centered, poor excuses for human beings when they grow up. Look at all the twisted, undisciplined trash that results from no father, and no discipline in the household.
