Saturday Morning Cartoon: The Dog Whisperer

I thought this was funny the first time I saw it:

Since then, it re-aired recently, and put into newer context when I learned that the Dog Whisperer in the South Park epidode is a real person: Cesar Millan of National Geographic's "The Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan".

Dennis Prager had on Cesar Millan
. I thought it was hilarious that Prager would draw a connection between Cesar Millan's doctrine of working with Mother Nature, in relation to the natural needs of dogs:
  • Exercise
  • Discipline
  • Affection
And applying it to humans, in how we nurture our kids. Rather than "affection, affection, affection", what children need is "exercise, discipline, and affection".

So South Park wasn't just being funny after all....who woulda thunk it.

Children crave discipline, they just don't know it, and most American children really need exercise!

This was indeed a funny episode, but one that could teach parents a few things. We have a bunch of spoiled brats in this country, thanks to Doctor Spock! None of my children would have ever dared speak to me like that. I know what God placed all that padding on their little tushes for. :)

I shocked some friends as they realized that I raised my child on routines and schedules. Children are more secure and understand disipline with those two things. All this letting children decide their own bedtimes and letting them rule the house is so destructive to the family. I didn't spank but he hated lectures of disapproval so I didn't have to! I am happy to say he was a champ in his behavior at restaurants as a young child and traveling. Just tell them what you expect and they'll try to get there.

Perhaps if I had only one child I wouldn't have ever had to spank either, but I had three, two boys one year apart, and a daughter two years younger than the younger boy. Sibling rivalry is a bear! LOL!

Oh... I didn't have to spank the fourth one, my granddaughter whom we adopted. Schedules and routine works out pretty well for one child. Also a behavior chart when she was younger. She absolutely hated getting black stars, which meant demerits! Works like a charm. :)
