I come from what we in Chicago call the Doc and Marty whatever happens don’t ever go to 2020 shirt but in fact I love this last generation of the belt. My father was a cop, so his belt was particularly nasty. This would have been all through the 1960s. If he came home and I had left a toy on the stairs, off came the belt. I was born in 1959, and was probably hit when I was around four. Once, I was in my underwear in bed, my dad had worked the 3PM-11PM shift. Off came the belt and I was whacked across my stomach and testicles, though I doubt the latter was meant to happen. At times, my dad would just hand the belt to my mother while he undressed or went to get a beer. Unfortunately, my mother had no aim, so I was hit everywhere, haphazardly. My sister has three daughters. They were never spanked, never grounded. To an extent, they are spoiled, and get what they want. Each went through stages and two of my nieces are doing well, one is ready for Harvard. The other, her twin, is difficult to be with. Their dad tells them stories about how he was hit by the belt (he is my age, 56), and at times I think that they should have been spanked years ago, not hard but just to know of consequences. Instead of being told to stay in their respective rooms for an hour. Thinking that might be wrong, it will always be one of my grey areas. Can’t help it. You should also provide them with opportunities and resources for growth. If your kid loves animals, take them to the zoo. Or even the creek in your local park. See how many different kinds of animals you can find living there. Ask your child about what relationships the different animals might have with each other. And if you’re not competent to make that call, then hire experts whatever. And that is a very tricky thing on their part making that call, but it has to be done. Buffett and Gates are either failed in this evaluation of their kids or got it right and are not telling anyone. So, our opinions about whether Buffy and Billy did the right thing is pointless and not valid since we don’t know much about the kids to pass on the cruel verdict. There’s nothing better than sharing your success and money with your loved ones. I’m a very smart person. I’ve created and made myself virtually out of nothing.
