Cranial Percussion Therapy - or a More-Basic Method?
Over at Dr. Boli's place, a divisive reader maintains that CPT (Cranial Percussion Therapy) is the answer to disobedience of all sorts, and that reader offers this anecdotal evidence:
Every mother who has ever taken it upon herself to smack some sense into her child has administered CPT in its most ancient and therefore most effective form, making a record of literally billions of case studies unmatched by any other therapy.Billions of case studies? Each case is purely anecdotal! Now, I would agree that CPT works, but as I suggested to that divisive reader, there is an even more basic method, one that gets to the bottom of the problem, namely, SKITA:
Personally, I find that SKITA works better than CPT. The real problem is not that people don't know, it's that they're just too darned lazy, so they concoct excuses like, "Oh, I don’t understand." That's when the CPT gets applied, and it does work, but to get to the seat of the problem, which is laziness ("Oh, I'm too busy," they always say), giving the subject a SKITA works even better. I'd be happy to demonstrate how a swift kick works, but I wouldn't know where to begin with a public demonstration, and I don't have the time anyway.So, remember, folks, the problem ain't cognitive, it's behavioral! People are lazy and just won't do what they ought to do! No need to strike the cranium - just kick the butt.
