American College of Pediatricians January 2017Family First Comment: Here’s a balanced and thorough analysis “Back-up disciplinary (smacking) can be used non-abusively when a child refuses to comply with milder corrective techniques, such as time out. Back-up (smacking) teaches a defiant child to cooperate with the milder disciplinary technique, thereby reducing the need to use disciplinary (smacking) in the future. Parental discipline that uses this form of disciplinary (smacking) has been associated with long term reductions in behavioural problems in children. Research opposing all forms of corporal punishment neglects the findings of these better designed studies in which disciplinary (smacking) is well defined, employed only for defiance, and distinguished from abusive punishments.”#commonsense #defyinghumannatureParents need effective methods to discipline their young children, and research shows that appropriately applied disciplinary spanking can be one of them. Lately, some publicized research has labeled all forms of disciplinary spanking as harmful to children, even though their methods are so biased that they make all other disciplinary responses look harmful or ineffective. A closer examination of their accusations reveals their methodological flaws and bias-driven claims.Child discipline (or training) is essential to healthy child development. The American College of Pediatricians urges all parents to rely first and foremost upon non-physical forms of corrective discipline, such as explanations, acceptable compromises, and time out. The College recognizes, however, that there are occasions when these forms of correction are not sufficient to correct childhood misbehavior. Under these circumstances, when other methods fail, scientific evidence supports the limited use of a narrowly defined disciplinary spank in specific situations.A recent meta-analysis identified an optimal type of back-up spanking, which led to less defiance or aggression than 77% of alternative disciplinary tactics. This same study found that outcomes of disciplinary spanking were worse than outcomes of other disciplinary responses only when used too severely or as the main disciplinary response.

Spanking should only be used when children fail to respond to milder disciplinary tactics (e.g., time out) or fail to stop harmful misbehavior (e.g., running into a street). Parents should ensure that their children know that disciplinary actions are motivated by love and concern for their well-being. Every child is different, so the effectiveness of disciplinary tactics may vary from one child to another or from one situation to another. Parents need a full range of non-abusive disciplinary options to guide their children toward achieving their full potential, rather than having effective options eliminated on the basis of inadequate evidence.

Parents need effective methods to discipline their young children, and research shows that appropriately applied disciplinary spanking can be one of them. Recent studies, however, claim that all disciplinary spanking is harmful to children. This research has been used to ban disciplinary spanking in many countries, and activists are preparing to lobby US legislators to follow suit. The American College of Pediatricians has reviewed this conflicting research and identified significant flaws in those studies that assert universal harm.

The statement continued: “The incident occurred in the 17th minute. Healy will now appear at a judicial hearing tomorrow, Thursday June 6, at the Sofitel Hotel in Brisbane.” Match citing officer, South African Freek Burger, asked Sheehan to provide him with a statement after he made a biting allegation to referee Glen Jackson during the game. The game was held up while television match official Glenn Newman looked at replays from different angles of any alleged offence, but nothing materialised from that footage. Healy, who had been widely tipped to win a Lions Test place against Australia later this month, could face a lengthy ban. But he is also battling to overcome a suspected ankle ligament injury, the full extent of which the Lions management hope to know within 24-48 hours. The Lions leave Perth for Brisbane on Thursday, where they face the Queensland Reds on Saturday. Press Association Healy is alleged to have committed the offence on Western Force scrum-half Brett Sheehan during Wednesday’s tour game at Patersons Stadium, the Australian Rugby Union has announced. Ireland and Leinster forward Healy was later carried off after suffering an ankle injury that is threatening his future participation in the tour. The ARU said, in a statement: “British and Irish Lions prop, Cian Healy, has been cited for acts contrary to good sportsmanship against Emirates Western Force scrum-half, Brett Sheehan, in the opening match of the DHL Australia 2013 Lions Tour. Healy has been cited under Law 10.4.m Acts contrary to good sportsmanship, a player may not bite an opponent.” British and Irish Lions prop Cian Healy has been cited for allegedly biting an opponent.

Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 21, 2014 at 2:36 am Contact Phil: firstname.lastname@example.org | @PhilDAbb NEW YORK — With a flick of the wrist, Chris McCullough gave a quick tease to just how versatile he can be. Four minutes into Syracuse’s matchup with California, the freshman saw space in front of him, pulled the trigger on his first career 3-pointer and nailed it.But his weaknesses were also on display, losing the ball twice around the rim as he attacked the basket — the second of which led to California guard Jabari Bird dunking easily on the break and SU head coach Jim Boeheim folding his arms and calling timeout as the Golden Bears pulled away in the second half. While McCullough’s offensive game was efficient and he defended the rim well with five blocks on the night, the freshman didn’t match up well physically during the No. 23 Orange’s (2-1) 73-59 loss to the Golden Bears (3-0) in Madison Square Garden on Thursday night.“Chris has some really good basketball skills, but his stamina and physicality — that only comes over time,” Boeheim said. “He’s a smart player, he knows what he’s doing, he understands the game, but he’s not physical enough for the college game right now. And his stamina is not as good as it needs to be.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn addition to showing reliability on the defensive end as a rim protector, McCullough’s offense — 5-for-8 shooting and 12 points — was economical compared to how he performed in SU’s exhibition against Adrian and the season opener against Kennesaw State.McCullough accounted for six of SU’s first eight points Thursday night, swishing the 3 and then getting a basket in the paint after a free throw. In the second half, he added a dunk off a pass from point guard Kaleb Joseph.But ultimately, Syracuse’s offense as a whole fell flat with Christmas relegated to just 23 minutes.“I think Chris is another guy who can score, but … he gets pushed around a little bit. That’s to be expected,” Boeheim said. “Really, we have got to find some scoring in other places.”Against Adrian on Nov. 10, a Division III team with no players taller than 6 feet, 5 inches, the 6-foot-10 McCullough finished 2-of-11 from the field despite grabbing nine offensive rebounds.SU’s success on the offensive glass stood out and caught the Golden Bears’ eyes while watching tape, Bird said. The Orange had pulled down 36 offensive rebounds through its first two games, but grabbed just 13 in its third as it scrapped with a team of similar size. In 38 minutes against the Golden Bears, McCullough collected just three offensive boards. He cleaned up a Tyler Roberson air ball with a layup, and a misfired Trevor Cooney 3 bounced long and he drove to the basket and flipped it in.“That was the bulk of their offense,” Bird said of SU’s offensive rebounds. “We just decided to keep them off the glass and make them make tough shots all game, we’ll have a chance to win.”As Christmas’ early foul troubles persist, McCullough showed promise as a rim protector. Within a minute of Christmas fouling out with 6:23 left in the game, McCullough deflected a dunk attempt by California forward David Kravish in transition, then rejected another fastbreak attempt at the rim a possession later. When Boeheim’s discussed Christmas’ unhurried development as a big man, he’s pointed to the fact that big men generally take longer to improve than guards and small forwards. He expects McCullough to progress at the same rate.“Nobody wants to hear it, but it takes time,” Boeheim said. “Hakim Warrick was like that and even a little bit thinner when he was a freshman. He struggled the whole freshman year really into his sophomore year, but it does take time.” Comments

WWE SMACKDOWNFemi Solaja in New York courtesy MultiChoiceThe sweet revenge for Shinsuke Nakamura against The Singh Brothers was one of the major high point at the WWE SmackDown bouts late Tuesday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Two days ago the Japanese wrestler was handed his first single loss of the championship to Jinder Mahal.The loss to Mahal was caused by the Singh Brothers who distracted Nakamura long enough for the champion to gain the upper hand for the controversial victory.However, at the SmackDown event, it was a different scene as Mahal watched helplessly as the master of flying kicks gave the challengers enough dose of punishment.Before the bout, Bryan, an acquaintance of Nakamura had told Mahal that it’s payback time by going up against his cronies the Singh Brothers.In the ring, Nakamura blasted both Sunil and Samir Singh, knocking them around with hard strikes. A distraction from Mahal opened the door for the heels to battle back.A triangle choke, though, was enough to put away the brothers. Mahal tried to ambush Nakamura afterward, but he countered with a Kinshasa.The flamboyant Japanese wrestler won via Samirâ€™s tapout to a triangle submission leading to a pin fall and thereafter blues and red lighting illuminate the hall as passionate fans celebrate with him.Before the bout, AJ Styles kicked off the night by issuing an open challenge for his U.S. title. McMahon screwed him over and few minutes later, Shane-O-Mac stepped out to highlight his dominance, stating he called the match fairly.In hot exchange of words, Styles demanded to defend the title, and the commissioner agreed to the match. Owens, though, demanded to choose his own referee.And per McMahon, this would be Owens’ last shot at the championship while Styles held it.“I told the world that I am the workhorse of the WWE,” Styles responded following Owens claim that “you should be focused on your right hand hitting the mat three times,” he responded.The efficient segment followed up the SummerSlam controversy well. Owens, Styles and McMahon all had a ton of tension here. We’re getting closer and closer to the McMahon vs. Owens feud that will be the highlight of SmackDown in the coming weeks.And WWE continues to find ways to keep the Styles-Owens matchups interesting. KO picking the ref is a unique, fun stipulation. The last-chance element of the bout adds high stakes.In the women tag team championship match, Natalya and Carmella teamed up against Naomi and Lynch in the epic battle. In exchange of pin fall claims, Natalya and her partner were on the losing side.The stage appearance of Naomi was awesome, wearing a sweet Technicolor-esque dream coat during her entrance. She hung it on the ring post, then immediately got in Natalyaâ€™s face.Naomi started the match against Carmella, who danced around the ring for a lap before tagging in Natalya. They lock up as the fight got to a break.Upon return, Lynch hit a running legdrop on Natalya. The new champion attempted to call a timeout, then pulled Lynch into the turnbuckle and kicked away at her. Natalya hooked a sleeper on Becky, who freed herself, only to be floored by a discus clothesline.Natalya pushed Lynch back into her teamâ€™s corner. She attempted to tag Carmella, who dropped to the floor to avoid getting involved in the match. Natalya glared down at her partner. Lynch took advantage of the situation with a schoolboy, then hit an enziguri.Both women regained their feet. Lynch hit a charging Natalya with an elbow in the corner, but was thrown onto her face when she climbed the ropes to follow up. Natalya scored a two count, then yelled, â€œWhat are you doing?â€ at Carmella. Outside the ring, the wave is back in Brooklyn.In the exchange, Naomi and Becky Lynch beat Natalya and Carmella when Naomi pinned Carmella after a split-legged moonsault.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
