POP 002: AudioBlog – Challenges of Transition
Summary In this episode, I cover a previously written blog, Challenges of Transition. Also, I provide a brief introduction to future plans for the Parent of Progress blog/website/podcast. Show Links Challenges of Transition blog post: http://parentofprogress.com/challenges-of-transition/ Stefan Molyneux: freedomainradio.com Janet Lansbury: janetlansbury.com Robin Grille: http://hearttoheartparenting.org Transcript: Well good morning everyone. Welcome to the Parent of Progress Podcast where we are Improving Childhood by Evolving Parenthood. My name is Daniel Wagner and this is Episode number two. Today I think I just wanted to try something a little different. One being the interview format which you saw in episode one which turned out really well and was a lot of fun to do. I’d definitely like to get more guests. The second type I’d like to do is something more like this following episode where it will be more like an audio blog where I will read over one of the blogs that I had written previously and maybe add a little extra commentary and a little extra insight and thought to it and maybe make fun of my own writing style. The third type that I’m thinking may be a lot of fun is this idea I call Trolling the Trolls. What it involves is going and looking at some of the commentary on other blogs around the internet and seeing some of the arguments being made and really showcase the people who are trolling and trying to talk crap. Basically to obliterate their argument the best I can with actual reason and actual statistics, because typically I see the statistics coming from the anti-spanking side. The pro spankers tend to use anecdotal evidence and feelings. Feelings are nice, they have their place, but when it comes to something as important as raising your children, I think I tend to steer more toward the empirical evidence side and make my judgments from there. So let’s go ahead and get started. No sense in retyping the blog post, so here’s the link for the original http://parentofprogress.com/challenges-of-transition/ . And now on to the additional speaking points from this Podcast. Now, as I kind of read over that (and it’s been awhile since I actually published that post), I’m realizing that a lot of those challenges are still here. Especially trying to help the kids transition. It’s been very interesting seeing some of the remnants of past behavioral techniques we’ve used, and seeing them having trouble adjusting to

Please leave us a review on iTunes if you enjoyed the show! Transcript Hi and welcome to the Parent of Podcast Progress… um Parent of Progress Podcast. Yeah, that’s the one. Where peaceful parenting strategies take a front row seat in the conversation. I’m your host, Daniel Wagner. And as a former authoritarian parent, it’s my mission to evolve parenthood four children at a time. Today I’ll be speaking with Terry Primm, a newly reformed peaceful parenting advocate and father of none. But even though he is not yet a parent, he does intend to be some day. Also, I’d love to hear your feedback. Please let me know what you think of the show over at parentofprogress.com/contact Enjoy the show. Before we get started, I just wanted to go over this news article I found in the CBS news.com website. This article, titled “Spanking Triggers Vicious Cycle, Study Finds” I just wanted to get your thoughts about a couple things here. They mentioned that about 28% of mothers reported spanking their children during their first year of life, increasing to 57% at age three, and then hovering around 53% at age five, and 48% at age nine. Basically 49% of parents were still spanking their children as nine year olds. What do you think about that? T: Well first of all, I want to meet these women who spank one year olds, because that is absolutely ridiculous. What can a one year old possibly do or understand that he’s getting a spanking for. D: As if they’re cognitively developed enough to understand what’s going on. I guess all they see is “well my caretaker is whooping my ass or hitting me. This is the person I’m supposed to depend on for all my needs. And here I am getting beat and being silenced, being told I’m somehow misbehaving.” T: It’s like,
