YES YES YES and MORE YYAAAAASSS!!! Our First Lady Michelle Obama and our President Barack Obama said it clear as day! "WE DON'T SPANK," they said. "You don't have to," Barack Obama said.

Now I am not a big Dr. Phil viewer, but I have to give props where props are due. He laid it out calm and simple for these parents. What spanking, hitting, popping or any type of corporal punishment, does to a child, goes beyond just fear.

Oooooooohhhh did my girl Jada have it on point when she said, "Prepare your children in the way where they can have ANYTHING!"

It's like being set up to fail from the giddy up. That viewpoint is soooo fear-based. Preparing children to lose, instead of preparing them to win, creates a person who ends up doing just that.
