    I think with any discipline, it is all a matter of degree and frequency. After all, time-out could mean being locked in a cupboard! Verbal assaults can be worse than a smack.

    Possibly the same reason things go wrong in politics and business. Getting to the top requires a degree of ruthlessness that can turn things bad no matter how good the original motivation was.

    I'm not an accountant, so you should check with yours. But you can register for GST whatever you do. However, you'd need to pay GST on rent.
