Poll #1134085 The Discipline of Discipline

Dr. William Glaser contends that a parent should never try to force a child to do what he or she does not want to do. Do you agree with this contention?

I checked other on this one, because I think the worst punishment a person could do is being forced to eat a chicken sandwich doused in katchup.
