I 100% agree, Amanda. And, to me, it shows in the respect our children show us. My kids are all a little snide, or rule breakers sometimes, but not one of them is a bad kid. Not one of them ever does anything ultra defiant, and they've never hit me or each other. They're respectful to adults, and other kids their age, and I think a lot of that comes from a steady discipline. I'm not sure I'd call myself strict, but I am structured and I expect my children to behave overall, while leaving some room for them to find their identity.

I mean, my oldest two hate getting spanked, but it speaks volumes about the respect they have that even though they're pre-teens, they are fully cooperative when it's time to go over my lap.
