Working hard or hardly working

The road to easy parenting is lined with little thought. This goes both ways - overdone praise or automatic discipline. My answer to 'that kid needs a spanking' is that I've always given myself enough credit to outsmart my kid with appropriate consequences. Kids need to learn to be responsible for themselves. We have to teach them self encouragement, motivation and discipline. It is not an easy task.
