    When I was a kid a belt to the @$$ was policy.

    But Calvin, kids like you need more of those things than almost anybody else, because otherwise you’ll try to find loopholes in the policy.

    Calvin has no idea how long we, parents, have waited to inflict the same torturous lectures on our kids, our parents inflicted on us; and we will not be deprived.

    @gmartin997: Your generation may be “the sandwich generation”: Your own parents may have dictated to you, but under new thinking of how to raise kids,you can’t dictate to your own kids.

    On the other hand, when you DO tell him something the first thing he says is “WHY?!”

    A new policy is definitely in order; in this case, I’d recommend term life.At the rate Calvin’s going whole life won’t happen and the rates are cheaper for term.

    Unfortunately, one can tell which kids were disciplined and which were not. Completely different mindset. Many women chose to have kids singly in my age group, combined with the psychobabble of no discipline and the party party party mindset.
    As a result a portion of Gen Y has no self-discipline, don’t respect the rights of others and since they’ve never been told no and had it meant when they actively rebelled, they are pretty messed up. Failures in life.

    What irks me is when one of those who didn’t discipline their kids says “I didn’t spank, but my kids turned out ok” but it turns out their idea of OK is drug use, violence toward others and usually run-ins with the law. Sometimes jail time. How that is supposedly “OK” I do not know.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    Okay what about us over disciplined kids?

    My mom’s top down obey me our else really backfired. I’m proudly nothing like her. She;d rip her hair out if she knew half of what I do.

    But I have a stable job, my own house, and a girlfriend for almost 2 years. No kids which almost seems to vex her.

    Maybe that’s why we survived no seatbelts, steel dashboards, standing up riding in the front seat with dad, no bike helmets or knee and elbow pads. etc. and today’s kids can’t brush their teeth without an electric brush and bottled water. New thinking. I honestly don’t get concepts like a hands-free soap dispenser when you’re about to wash your hands anyway. There is such a thing as overprotection.

    OK, so you’ve succeeded in becoming a rebel and have your own life now. Suppose the unthinkable happens and you become responsible for raising a child of your own. Are you qualified? How would YOU handle it? History proves it can and does happen, after all, and kids are all unique and don’t come with manuals. Are you prepared to handle it?

    Linus’s attempt to limit Lucy’s speech was also unsuccessful:
