"This is going to hurt me a lot more than it hurts you."

How so very true this statement is. Especially as a parent. So many times I have had to stand stronger at giving out the punishment than I think my kids have had to stand to take it. It is hurtful to you as a parent. I think we are programmed that way, though, to ensure that we don't go overboard when it does come to discipline. If a parent can punish a child in such a way that is more hurtful to the child than to the parent administering it, then there is a serious problem.
