    There's at least a whole generation that could have used a good old fashioned butt whooping from their mamas (or grandmas) to set them straight and maybe we wouldn't see some of the things we see today from kids and teens like disrespect, laziness, no work ethic, feeling entitled, back talking, rudeness, no manners, etc. But instead we have "helicopter parents" who don't set any boundaries, let their kids run the household, and run interference for every little problem so their kids never are taught how to be fully functioning human beings when they become adults. For God's sake, these kids don't need their parents to be their "buddy" - they need their parents to actually be parents.

    This is always a very popular question!
    My usual answer: I was never spanked by my parents, i never spanked my sons; but I was whipped a couple of times in elementary school, and also when I was hazed in college.

    Depending on the extent of the whooping. Smacking your child has recently become illegal here, and strangely enough the amount of kids screaming their heads off and throwing tantrums in the streets also seems to have increased. People have even faced court appearances over smacking their child's bottom.
    My son has a naughty chair and if that doesn't work also gets sent to his room and his toys taken of him, most of the time that works but on occasion he will get a smack, especially when acting violent or hostile.
    I have a few friends who were not disciplined as children and found it very hard to adjust when they moved out of home and had to fend for themselves.

    I am a supporter of spanking at home and school.
    I got spanked. It didn't make me a deranged psychopath. Some kids really, really need it.
    Anyone seen Jessi Slaughter? Her parents could have cured her of her issues eons ago with a few whuppins. Now their stuck with a monster.

    Standing, or kneeling, in the corner is embarrassing, especially if there are other children around. Our school-mistresses often punished the boys this way.

    That's the whole point of it. Maybe the kid will learn not to be an idiot and that the whole world does not revolve around him. This will teach him to be responsible and accept the consequences of his actions.

    That boy would be crying and rubbing his bright red butt after I was done with him. Butt whoopings are discipline.

    BTW, grandpas and grandsons are good friends, one reason is they have one common enemy. Guess who?

    Many, many studies have shown it has little influence other than negative if practiced instead of communication otherwise available. You want your kids to be obedient, and that means they stop when you tell them NO, as in keeping them from running into traffic. Abused children usually become abusive parents, so use your brain and stay one step ahead of them to avoid corporal punishment.

    "Spare the rod and spoil the child." Spanking is not child abuse, slapping a kid across the face is child abuse. There's nothing wrong with making them stand in the corner and so on.

    So, it is okay to hit other parts of the body, but the face is off limits? That doesn't make a lot of sense when hitting is hitting....an act of aggression that has other solutions not involving physical contact while anger may be a contributing factor. Corners are good, if they know why.

    I was spanked as a kid and I turned out alright. C'mon there is a huge difference between serious abuse and a spanking.

    I was spanked too, but many times it left bruises, but it wasn't anything even my teachers would show concern over. Too easy to cross the line, and it IS abuse even if that is not the intention. Studies show that it is the go-to beginning of most all cases begins with that same statement. That does not make it acceptable.

    I was never given any bruises. Besides in my opinon it's simple logic, let a kid walk over you they become spoiled. Don't teach them that actions have consequences they get hurt. What is so bad about a slap on the wrist or butt? It's not like, locking a kid in a room and starving them, or whipping them. It stings a little, but it doesn't qualify as abuse.
  • sugarbuzz Son of ... 2010/12/14 23:56:30

    It does qualify as abuse. Check with child services. There is no reason to let them walk all over you....it is called communication and taking away privileges and many other sanctions where NO PHYSICAL harm is involved. Kids who are spanked, are sent the message that it IS okay to use physical means to settle differences or to solve problems that can be settled in far better ways. Studies show that they will go from being spanked to rationalizing that it is okay to do so, and will use the same methods used on them, thus perpetuating the vicious cycle. Too many times it is a fine line between a slapping and carrying that "slap" into abuse. You were spanked, and see no harm? Thus you think it okay to use that as a disciplinary tool, and where will the line be drawn? It is a mis-use of communication, and no matter how you rationalize...it is wrong on many levels.

    Smacking the bottom and hand is ok, as long as it's not the only form of discipline and it should never result in bruises. My mum was also left with bruises and welts and while she still smacked my brother and I, she was always careful how she did it. We are perfectly adjusted, in fact I actually asked mum a couple of years back if she smacked us, as I couldn't remember it. She responded that she never stopped. It doesn't have to be a traumatic experience.

    The point is, studies have found that using physical aggression to solve social and emotional issues, is wrong on many levels. Many of us survived and learned how wrong it is, by education and being shown OTHER ways other than that of physical aggression. It sends out all the wrong messages and has been shown that more who have survived such, will opt for the same because they figure they survived and if they only beat a bit, it will be okay. IT IS NOT. There are civilized ways to educate and find better alternatives.
