There's nothing wrong with spanking so gtfoh with that nonesense. It's why a lot of kids are disrespectful and entitled these day. Spanking with enough force to break skin and scar is ABUSE, spanking that leaves to momentary redness is COMPLETELY FINE. Society smdh
Nonsense? Okey doke, I'll just not listen to years of psychology studies that show beatings are bad for children.
No where did I say spankings, by the way. I said hitting with objects, AKA beatings.
Kids aren't any more disrespectful now than they ever were. That's just something that everyone says as they get older when they see bad kids. People said it in the 70's, people said it in the 50's, and our kids will be saying it in 2030.
I was a disrespectful little idiot that was thrown out of school as a teenager. No beating was going to make me act right, if anything it would have made me act more destructively. I wasn't going to go home if my mom or dad would have beaten me. A psychiatrist is what I needed, not a leather belt. Beating me wouldn't have done anything but made me resent my parents, just like my dad resents my grandmother, who was physically and mentally abusive to him and his sisters. They now have no relationship, and no tears will be shed when she passes.
