Disciplining Other People's Kids. Right or Wrong?

Is it right to hit another person's child as a form of discipline?

'The Slap' a new drama on NBC about the fall-out of two families after a parent slaps someone else's child has reignited  the debate.

Denene Miller, the creator of MyBrownBaby, a parenting website, took part in a four panel discussion on NBC and recently wrote an article about her personal opinions on the issue.

Battle Hymn of the Lion Mother

Yale Professor, Amy Chua’s new book ‘Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother’ has caused some serious controversy amongst parents in the US and probably in Europe too. It’s basically reignited a debate that’s always been going on. That is the ‘Strict versus soft parenting’ one. She just provided a new dimension to it. Her book is mainly talking about a specific style of parenting which might be seen as harsh within the Western parenting context. Parents using this style don’t subscribe to the ‘Everybody’s a winner’ or ‘there are no losers’ mantra sweeping schools and parenting methods in the West. This type of approach doesn’t praise children just for the sake of it just so their egos aren’t hurt. This parenting style expects results from children and puts them under pressure to perform and deliver.
