It just seems that rather than being able to talk about what works for them, most parents have to make their opinion right by making all other methods wrong, ridiculous, etc (then again, I guess the same could be said about training philosophies and horses, lol)
It just seems that instead of saying, "I spanked and it worked for me" it has to be "Anything other than spanking is just psychobabble crap that doesn't teach your kid a darn thing" or instead of "I choose not to use physical discipline, I have successfully done x, y or z" it has to be "What YOU are doing is ABUSE and you should be ashamed of yourself - *I* can get my child to behave without having to BEAT them"
Maybe I'm just burned out on the whole right/wrong mommy/parenting war thing, I don't know.
