A good person who values life and empathetic but also logically rationalize situations both short and long term and factor in outcomes in a positive manner.  That's what a good person is and a great person goes beyond that has grit to make society and and everyone around him into better people and inspires people to become great people to spread that positive aura around them.

I love this.

 

Me too...glad this was said!

True.

Yeah I don't buy that you need to be a parent to have an opinion either. Your beliefs prior to having children play a huge role. He said so himself, he decided that beatings were not his thing based on his experience, so he approached raising his child from that perspective.

I'm sorry, but I thought the question was directed towards parentsConfused

The OP can comment on her intent. But there were clearly multiple questions in the OP. Even if there weren't that doesn't stop others from commenting, regardless of your opinion in the value of said comments.

i think you can be a good parent but not a good person… 

i guess a 'good person' is subjective though 

but yea I've seen it.

DMV folks, there's a parenting show on NpR. There is an author of a book called "all joy and no fun the paradox of modern parenthood".

I want to get her book.

Spankings didn't help me one bit. I wasn't a terrible child, just wanted attention. If someone would have explained why instead of beat me. It would have helped me immensely.
