"If controlling another human being is the goal of parenting, then force is necessary. Fear, intimidation, threats, power-plays, and physical pain are the means of control. But if growing healthy humans is the goal, then building trust relationships, encouraging, guiding, leading, teaching, and communicating are the tools for success."

- L.R. Knost,
The Problem with Punishment
