    One should never EVER under any circumstances ever ever hit a child  -

    but when you do they should come off your hand and stick on the wall !

    Treat your baby (no matter how little s/he is) with the same respect, awareness that s/he is an individual little human being;  and kindness you hope s/he will one day grow to have for others.

    Think of the things you would like to say to your mum and dad if they were no longer around.  Now think of your kids.  Is there any common themes that come up with you and these two groups?  If so, it's time for some long soul searching.

    Remember that kids are naturally nice good people with no opinions, hangups, irrational fears or religion- it is parents who screw that little gift up.
