Spare the rod and spoil the child?! @BruceSallan #DadChat Recap

May 21, 2012

Spare the rod and spoil the child?

That ain’t in the Bible! But there’s several equivalents in the Old Testament – most of them in Proverbs. Here’s one example of such:

He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes (diligently). Proverbs 13:24

Note: This #DadChat RECAP appeared last week on Bruce Sallan’s blog.

Are parents spoiling their kids?

Are you? Am I?

That’s what Bruce Sallan (@BruceSallan on Twitter) is asking. He asks himself in last week’s weekly column, Entitled. Last Thursday, Bruce and co-hosts Charlie (@HowToBeADad) AND Andy (@betadad) asked the big questions at #Dadchat.

Do you spoil your kid(s)?

Why do you spoil your kid(s)?

How do you teach kid(s) otherwise?
