Barbara Newhall asked:
In the decades since he first wrote this book, Dobson has not altered his views on corporal punishment as as way to bring children into submission to parents and ultimately God (who sends the disobedient to hell). Here's the story on that. http://barbarafalconernewhall.com/2014/10/09/james-dobson-bully-your-pet-hit-your-kid-make-them-obey-you-and-god/ How do people feel about teaching kids to, literally, fear God?
Victor Ward I feel like this isn't really a question as much as an accusation. I don't think Dobson sees it as a method to place fear into the child, so unless you can reconcile those base premises you won't really get a satisfactory answer one way or the other.
