He warns against "harsh spanking" because "It is not necessary to beat the child into submission; a little bit of pain goes a long way for a young child.As long as the tears represent a genuine release of emotion, they should be permitted to fall.But crying quickly changes from inner sobbing to an expression of protest ...Young "Jimmie Lee" (as he was called) concentrated on his studies.Dobson interviewed serial killer Ted Bundy on-camera the day before Bundy's execution on January 24, 1989.
