I swear, sugar is evil.
I just gave my sister's kids a basketful.

Wow, I'd be so pissed if I got a sticker instead of candy! But seriously, do you notice that these kids that don't get the candy aren't as willing to please?
Have fun out there Bill!

Pastor's moments NEVER had any type of candy. Sunday school had no candy or treats, though, they often had a coffee hour after the second service. Bible school ALWAYS had a snack and that was usually cookies and Kool-Aid, the only reason we went, I think.
But, yes, they did have corporal punishment in those days, and while church and SS never had this mentioned, nor did I ever see a kid taken out to be straightened out by The Board of Education from these, they were in school. And yet, it wasn't an every day occurence. They were pretty free with a yardstick in the early years, or a ping pong paddle, they used a donkey tail for tattling, and the older teachers all had their paddles, specially and individually designed with holes in them and contour handles for the best movement and whirring sounds.
They stationed these right on their chalk tray of their blackboards, and it was never out of sight or out of mind.
These days they use an awful lot of sugar, and if you have a kid whose behavior becomes markedly obnoxious when you pump sugar into them, it can be a big problem. And if you tell the teacher NOT to give the kids sugar, they act as though you are crippling them. My sister has special non-sugar snacks that she provides the teacher with for her daughter, but it is treated like an imposition, to not be able to give them sugar, chocolate.
I am not a fan of all that. Kids need to learn that they must behave, and they should not expect a gold nugget every time they manage it. We do not have to go back to the dark ages where kids were strapped for just about everything, but especially with the obesity problem with kids, teachers have to have more in their toolboxes than chocolate.

|glowingtoadfly||Scheduled exercise and training provide discipline in that a tired, often trained dog is less likely to act out. Redirection and time outs and no are also used. Happy Eostre, day of the dawn goddess and harbinger of Spring!|

Happy Easter to you too Bill, and everyone!
GTF, I just saw your edit: "Rhythm and schedule provide discipline." How do you figure that? Establishing a routine isn't going to affect how a dog learns something - other than how to tell time, if the routine never changes. Mine know this, as far as mealtime goes.
