Positive parenting means a smack free zone

SKIP stands for Strategies with Kids – Information for Parents campaign will work with community groups to provide resources and training for parents and caregivers of children up to five years old. SKIP will fund approved agencies suggesting that more authority lies with approved "experts", rather than parents. It works with Plunket and Barnardos, the two key organisations that want to ban smacking.

SKIP even has a newsletter. It outlines grants given to various groups that promote positive parenting - or in other works groups that ban smacking. One group even got a grant to ensure that their community was a "smack-free zone", and the group didn’t just work with under five year olds either so it is debatable that is should have got tax payer funding in the first place.

It is clear that Every Child Count's main answer to politicians for promoting positive parenting for children over five is to ban smacking. If you are from Plunket or Barnardos and are reading this, you may want to leave a note stating what the alternatives are when "positive parenting" doesn’t work.

The promotion of gentle parenting or positive discipline is not the same as the promotion of a ban on smacking.

Neither is encouraging parents to find positive ways to help their children learn to obey, a way to undermine parental authority.

I can understand your concern about the government and parental responsibility/authority. Yet, please consider that encouraging discipline that is positive and respectful of a child is not the same thing as the government taking over the parent's roles.

Tulip girl, the Government is not promoting positive parenting. THe Greens are promoting a ban on smacking. If the government put out positive parenting legislation, what do you think it would say?

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
