"Thanks to DSS, we aren't allowed to discipline our children anymore."
There it is. The motto of lazy parenting.
Newsflash: Discipline means to teach, to train. It does not mean beat.
Stop being lazy and learn how to teach your children what you want them to be.
Loki sez: Doesn't mean the SPCA won't get you for feeding me loaf cat food instead of shredded with gravy.
