Very good counsel. Very nice that you went to one of the more controversial Proverbs on the subject. Disappointed, however that you didn't go to the one that I believe is most telling. Although you did allude to the false quote often given, I would have liked to have seen you mention that God specifically says if you spare the rod you "hate" your child. So much for the "I love my child too much to ever hit them." Call God a Liar at your own peril. As for me, I'll stand with God as I believe He knows just a wee bit more than any man. (Prov. 14:12)
