    Silver, do you mean "old school" as in "proper school?"

    With the possible exception of the chat thread, one needs to read and understand a whole thread before posting advice or instructions, and then it helps if you have a clue about the subject, or at least the decency to say you're posting from a basis of limited information (eg I am not a Vet or a professional dog trainer).

    Melba seems to have posted without reading the whole thread and aborbing all the circumstances and then posted stuff that clearly ignores previously posted information, well I guess that's the definition of ignorant and ill-informed. It looks ugly.

    Masha - you can't take advice like that personally.

    We've only suggested - mostly - that Masha's mum's dog training skills might be a bit limited. I say that as a long time member of a dog training club. Methods and techniques have changed in the last 30 years.

    And it is part of growing up to question the authority of one's parents. That's what being a teenager is about - learning to make one's own decisions.

    Masha - most parents mean well and want the best for their children - no matter how inappropriate their methods may seem. Every child, eventually needs to forgive their parents, the mistakes - everybody makes mistakes even if they didn't mean to.

    I have the impression, from what you wrote about your mother, that she does mean well. She just has a fundamental difference of opinion (to many of us) when it comes to methods for training dogs (and perhaps teenagers).

    It is also true that some parents should never have been allowed to breed, and many of their children escape into the internet. Posting and venting here is better than tagging the local scout hall at night (or worse) in my opinion.

    SilvershadowWolf - excellent post.

    Melba - I think of "old school" as that place that Oliver Twist was in when he asked for "more". Firmly buried in a belief system that is obsolete and generally considered damaging. Not that the current belief systems are always harmless - but there is a balance between oppression and freedom, especially when it comes to trainig dogs and children and teenagers. Not that I have any qualifications when it comes to training children apart from my own experience growing up.

    No, I mean "old school" as in "mostly out dated". Your mentalities are your own. Unfortunately (or fortunately, however you look at it), they are becoming increasingly limited in their applications.

    However, you obviously think you are very right, and everyone else is wrong. No one else can sway you either way (nor should they, for your opinions are what you want them to be). Just don't think you can come on here and tell everyone else what they can and cannot do, because frankly, 98% of people here do not agree with you.

    Since when are basic manners and respect limited to the "old school"?

    I was talking to my grandparents about this not too long ago.

    Respect and good manners (for them and for everyone they knew) was reinforced with fear of their parents. I'm not saying that every "old school" family had this same mentality, but I know a fair few did (and still do ). I'm sorry, being beaten for speaking out of turn, and "children" being oppressed to the point where they cannot voice any opinion, has NO place in today's society.

    [QUOTE=silvershadowwolf24;81961]I was talking to my grandparents about this not too long ago.

    Amazing how one can twist situations and words in this manner.

    Hyacinth. I read every bit of this thread. I know what I am talking about. I am also a mother and a good one I might add. By a good one, I mean I look after my children's emotional, physical, mental and psychological wellbeing and I cater for their needs. I lead by example.

    I am not going to forever justify what I said and why I said it. If you are over 18, you might understand what I mean and if you happen to be a mother, you will then understand 100% what I mean.

    We obviously come from different worlds. I came to this forum thinking I will find people of like mind i.e. who share their love of animals and their experiences. I certainly did not come to this forum to learn teaching techniques for my dogs especially from people I don't know and who don't know my dog. This is why I scarcely visit.

    The aim of this thread however was to manipulate and seek attention. All of you scholars eager to show your prowess fell for it! for Masha!
