Please, can somebody convince Rob Sherman to enter into individual or family therapy, for the sake of himself and his family [December 17]? (It would also be nice if he would stop giving atheists and liberals a bad name.) It is disappointing to see someone who looks for “evidence” regarding faith in God who cannot look at the research evidence which clearly demonstrates how ineffective and harmful corporal punishment is. I almost expected to read Mr. Sherman bring out the classic “spare the rod, spoil the child.” He needs to figure out why he is clinging to a parenting tool which does not fit with the rest of his belief system.
