I have two sons, no daughters. My wife never hit them. I hit each once. Each did the same thing. During a tantrum in the kitchen he smashed a glass on the floor, then glared at us.
I picked him up by one arm. Took him to a bedroom. Pushed my wife out and locked to door. Stood him up on the bed. Pulled his shorts down and put a big red handprint on his but. Turned him to the mirror. Removed his hands covering it. Then turned him so he could look me in the eye. Always made my boys do that when we talked. Then said to him without harshness or yelling:
You threw a fit on the kitchen floor. That is not why your but hurts. That glass was not yours to break. You broke it anyway. What you did to that glass is why it hurts.
Your but won’t get hurt if you intentionally break one of your own things. It will get hurt each time you intentionally do that to someone else’s thing. Do you understand? When I was eye to eye convinced he did. I comely said, pull up you shorts. Gave him a hug. Then said, now go tell your mom you are sorry you broke her glass. He did that while he rubbed his but.
Each of my boys did that once, then never again. Oh each did more fits and tantrums, attitude, stupid, heavy on the stupid. Hey, they were boys. But not that.
Our Republicans are on the floor in our Congress throwing an ACA (Obamacare) god awful fit. I have no problem with that. I agree with some of it. What I do have a problem with is:
While they do that, they are breaking things in our federal government not theirs. Each time they break something in it, they glare at us. The bedroom? (Your fit is not why your but hurts. That glass was not yours. What you did to it is why it hurts.)
