/ Differences in How Polish People Raise a Child and How Americans Raise a Child
Maybe spanking is going out of style, so to speak, esp with the popularity of the Supernanny tv show??
I have to say I get really annoyed with Supernanny, for a start when she became this "all knowing celebrity" she did not have children of her own. Children behave completely different with strangers than they do with their mothers, as they are out of their comfort zone of familiarity.
I have watched programmes where she is clearly dealing with a child who has Attention Deficit, or other disorders on the autistic spectrum, and she treats them as "an out of control naughty child" and makes no reference or allowances at all. It is such children that need a different type of guidance and she either ignores the fact, or fails to recognise it.
I personally think that programmes such as these should be axed from tv as they give out the wrong messages to families.
