Parenting By Example
One thing I have never done is tell her no without explaining why. Parenting should not be a dictatorship. I do not want to teach her that she should be submissive. Having an interactive conversation with your child about why they cannot do something or why they should do somthing does not have to be an argument.

A Curious Obsession
Is this fascination with spanking really limited to the milieu of erotic literature, or is it part of something culturally bigger? Steve Richardson, editor, publisher and founder of CF Publications, strongly believes that it is something bigger. "My guess is that somewhere between one-third and two-thirds of the population has some interest in spanking," says Richardson.

From the Cave to Upsilon Andromedae
In the Middle Ages we lived in a spiritual realm that was governed by religious leaders and other-worldly dogma. We were told that mankind was at the center of the universe, surrounded by the entire cosmos, for one solitary purpose, to win or lose salvation.
