Adrian Peterson Suspended For the Year


Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings was notified today that he has been suspended without pay for at least the remainder of the 2014 NFL season, and will not be considered for reinstatement before April 15, for violating the NFL Personal Conduct Policy in an incident of abusive discipline that he inflicted on his four-year-old son last May. Peterson pled no contest on November 4 in state court in Montgomery County, Texas to reckless assault of the child.

  1. And to answer the question someone had about how to handle behaviors without beating or timeout…look up Skinner’s theory on conditioning and applying positive/negative reinforcement. It’s not a matter of beat or time out…there is an inbetween lol.

  2. I modify behavior for a living so yes, behaviors can be modified without physical discipline. Spankings don’t always work either. I see the same kids who get their tails beat up still acting up in stores along side the kids who have time out (that was me…no spanking would stop me hehehe). So idk I’m torn. I spanked my daughter maybe 3 times in her 3 years of life and she’s afraid to move unless I say so. And just because we survived what we went through doesn’t necessarily make it “right.” Just my opinion…but different things work for different folks I guess.
