Say you meet a girl (I'm assuming you're a straight male. If not, I'm sure you can just switch girl with guy in the hypothetical). She's attractive, you two have a lot in common, you start dating.

You two fall in love, get married, have children, the whole deal.

She grew up with parents who would hit her. They wouldn't beat her terribly or anything, but they'd maybe smack her, or hit her hard and definitely inflict some physical pain if she really acted up.

She grew up with an idea that that's proper parenting. So she wants to be that way with her (and your) kids.

How do you handle this? Forbid it? Let her do it, but you keep your own way? Or maybe you are also the same way?

Depends on the response it invokes in the child.


edit: assuming the kid is not a baby. Hitting a baby is always wrong.

Forbid it, definitely. Somewhat sounds like my mom though, and i sure as hell don't want my kids to go through that.

I would discourage/forbid it? Not sure, it sounds inconsistent with somebody I'd be with but I guess it's possible

Present her with a rational argument why it's ineffective parenting. If she persists, well then I'll just have to do some parental parenting if you catch my drift.

As long as it's not a senseless beating or visible it's all good. She can go to town on that little F**ker!
#8
eh... A slap on the hand never did anything. Taking it further isn't necessary. I would observe, and stop any situation I thought she took it too far.

If by hitting you mean spanking, then i dont care. It's an effective discipline and when done in the proper, loving way, then there's no problem with it. I dont buy this garbage that a spank once in a while is "child abuse" (it's not), and i really ****ing detest the idiots that are trying to outlaw it. Removing all privileges and isolating the kid (ie, grounding) is a more cruel punishment then a wooden spoon to the asscheek every once in a while.

honestly, I think more parents need to spank their kids. I was spanked. not like violently with a belt, but when I was bad I got spanked. and I've never gotten out of line at school, with the law, or anything.

some teenager's behavior these days is just appalling.

but really, I don't see anything wrong with it. as long as your're not like. BEATING the kid to death. it's discipline.

Like I said in the last thread like this: If you have to resort to hitting your child you've failed as a parent.

Hitting and spanking are two different things. I do not condone hitting a child, but I do support spanking. I do not believe in leaving bruises or marks on a child's skin. That's taking it too far.
#15
I would have a serious talk about why she shouldn't do it. If she is too closed-minded to even consider not doing it, then she's not the kind of person I'd have kids with anyway.

Punishment =/= reinforcement.

I like to think that I'm against hitting kids. I don't see what that's supposed to teach them. Besides, once they're a certain age, they're taller and probably as strong as you are.

Having said that, I think if my kids were really loud and obnoxious, I'd have a hard time keeping myself from hitting them. Sometimes it seems like the only way to get them to STFU. I'm not very patient with kids.

I don't plan to reproduce.
#17
Well, if the kid is a baby, I would not condone any kind of hitting on an infant. If the kid was maybe around 6 or above a spanking is okay, I guess. Some kids really don't learn but it's up to the parents to set boundaries without hitting. I was spanked as a child and I didn't mind it cause I did put my parents through a ton of hell. Look at me now, I'm a great person.

i used to get hit as a child it does nothing, no lesson is learned, and you end up disliking your parents.

not only that but as i said i was hit as a child and i have no urge ever to hit a child.

Depends on the situation. Certainly just flat-out throwing a tantrum or something deserves a good olde fashion spanking. Hitting the kid all the time for every little thing isn't right though, you have to find a balance.

Personally, when I got spanked as a kid, I sure as hell didn't do what got me spanked again.
#23
You don't need to beat the living hell out of a kid. A spank here and there is deserved if the kid is being a little bastard. But things need to be explained to kids so they know what the did wrong, and why they got spanked.
#24
I wouldn't let her at all. I wouldn't be like "Bitch you don't be doin that!" though lol, just tell her that's not how we should bring up our kids

hitting kids is ok. Inflicting pain is not. My dad used to hit me till the age of 10 and I think he is a good father.

The occasional spank? Sure. Beating the shit out of a kid for pooping their pants? (cwutididthar?) I forbid it.

You should smack your wife for smacking your kids. She was raised that way. She'll understand.

I chose "I'll let her do keep on keepin' on." because it was fun to read.

I'll show her the scientific studies that show that it is ineffective and damaging, and if she won't take science's advice, I'll promptly divorce her knowing that she must've been the wrong choice.

If anyone touches my son (whenever I finally am ok with actually having a dependent), I will slaughter them. At least that's how I felt about my dog, so I assume a child would invoke similar feelings in me.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!
#32
Okay, so we first need to ask the question, what is she doing out of the kitchen? Second, if you don't approve of her hitting the kids, smack her upside the head to show her who is boss, and only you, the man is allowed to doll out the discipline.

I totally understand not wanting your wife to hit the kids, hitting the kids is the mans job and the woman should stick to cooking/cleaning and blowjobs. Plus, it undermines your authority, if the kids think mom is allowed to hit them, then they know that you aren't fully in control.

Once my teacher tells me that beating in someone is a proof that you don't have enough arguments to face the situation, its the same principle for my future kids.

Oh man, that is so funny. It's been funny every time someone has said this joke in the Pit for years, every single time a topic about women has been brought up. Clearly, when a joke gets laughs the first time, it gets more and more laughs each time it's told over and over again, despite its unoriginality and redundancy. Comedy is wonderful.
