Punishing the children severely only reflects badly
on bad parenting skills,
First, they take away little treats, that the children
look forward to from week to week,
It is never a temporary adjustment but a power play
by the "Domestic Management",
When time-out turns into a disaster they cleverly go after
the bigger life events, such as parties and allowances in
Time-out only serves selfish parents well, so they can turn
their children into drones while they buy and sell,
Yet, they complain when the little ones act detached and
They want to have all the fun while the little ones wait
Time-out is cruel and unusual punishment that smashes their glee....
