Follow-up advice to post #15, with whom I whole-heartedly agree: After punishing your li'l darling, keep a keen eye out for the retaliation. You should have known better... she's 5 years old?? This isn't the first time in 5 years the kid has retaliated after you said "no". I guarantee it. (I also agree with posts # 36, 74 and 75... if that was MY kid, her ass would be close to bleeding.... )
That's some awesome parenting you must have provided to wind up with a horrible little brat like that - well done!
Why is that? Because I can see that no child that has been raised properly would smear shit on walls in a tantrum? Neither my kids nor any child I've ever known would do that. Maybe you would, or your kids (if you have any) but no properly raised child that doesn't have mental health issues would.
Raised properly? Or a completely obedient non free thinking creature? A child raised properly should have outbursts like this, it proves that it's s free thinking creature. This stunt is juvenile and she should be punished but she is a free thinking human, not a robot. You're a ******* idiot. Love You Bro, Epilepsy
If she was being a brat, then I'd probably agree with them & make a joke about abandoning her to live with wolves. I don't give a crap about the opinions of strangers - ESPECIALLY on the internet. And the fact is that prior parenting set the stage for this behavior. Otherwise it wouldn't occur.
"Horrible little brat". Repeat those words in your mind, and imagine someone said it to you about your kids (im assuming from your past comments you have kids). It's definitely harder to vizualize a situation than to experience it, so I'll leave you be for a few minutes. Epilepsy: A kid smearing shit on her parents' walls isn't the sign of a free thinking human. It's the sign of a kid who's either been raised terribly, or a kid with serious mental disorders. Think about that when you go home after a hard day's worth of smoking and ********** furiously.
Epilepsy - You've done absolutely NO credible study on the Nature vs Nurture issue, it's obvious. In pretty much every field, particularly psychology and human development, it is recognised that there is a BLEND of both. In fact, it was mentioned in one of my lectures just a couple of weeks ago that people who come down heavily at either extreme on the scale are obviously poorly informed and should be ignored. Do some research and you will also discover that DNA as such is not "responsible" for behaviours. In addition, your inability to post without imbecillic personal insults attached is also highly indicative of your mental age, which I'd estimate at about 16.
#58 Better not to call them anything if you ask me. #72 May I remind you that smearing shit on the walls isn't a personality. It's the sign of either incredibly bad parenting, or a serious mental disorder. The kid should know that it's completely inappropriate and uncalled for behavior, especially over something as ridiculous as ice cream for breakfast, which the kid should also know is unhealthy. That's not personality; that's inappropriate behavior.
@ #72 - You can't see that there's an orders-of-magnitude difference between a tantrum and smearing shit on the walls? My kids have both had some screaming, howling writhing-on-the-floor tantrums in their time (some that lasted over an hour - literally tantrummed themselves to sleep) but they've never done anything that even approaches the shit -smearing. I've also known some pretty feral kids in my time and even they have never done anything like that.
Dysichordia. Buddy. I have actually studied nature vs. nurture very much. You are obviously biased towards your field which I assume to be psychology which tends to look upon nurture or a mixture as the only plausible choice. Granted I am bias as well since I only look at the argument through biology. If you actually kept an open mind in your research you would most likely see that evidence swings both ways and it can be interpreted by individuals. I have done studies and I find that nature guides us not nurture. If you were as learned as you say you are you would realize that different fields have varying interpretations on evidence.
Epilepsy - You may have studied a little biology, but at your age (yes, I had a look & I'll correct myself - you're 17, not 16) unless you are a Sheldon Cooper you haven't really studied much. When/if you go on to further study, you're going to cringe at your current absolute certainty in a few years. But that's ok - we all do it =) Anyway, I have to leave you all to it for now. Exams to cram for =S Ciao fer now =)
Take it from a graduate biologist, nurture most definitely has an effect on child rearing, just as nature has its influence. The fact that you're even considering our environment has no consequence on how we adapt, learn, and change our behavior leads me to believe you're misguided on your stance.
