What does everyone think of this age-old contraversy, of beating your child? By beating I obviously mean light punishment, meant more as humiliation than pain, rather than full on drunken clobberings.

I personally find it hard to make up my mind on the issue, with both sides having valid arguements, eg Children have less and less respect for authority nowdays and they need to be taught it is wrong to disobey people in higher authority than you, but then again violence only begats more violence, if the children are taught that violence is an acceptable method for dealing with behaviour they don't like then that'll hardly make them grow into decent human beings will it, eh?

Parents who beat their kids must not have been beaten enough as kids to know it's wrong to beat your kids.

I was disciplined in a similar way, I am not a spoiled little asshole who wants everything his way, it works, take it from me, I was treated the same way, and ill do the same to my kids. Only for major infractions, if the kid spills some juice by accident im not going to Falcon Punch him.

I put the blanket over me and make my knees into a 'tent' so he couldn't see my boner. I jizzed while he gave me a lecture on using coasters.

They say everyone has something they feel strongly about.
This is mine.

2 ducks and a rabbi walk into a bar.
The rabbi enjoys a nice drink and the ducks are shooed out so that health services aren't called in.

Every kid needs a good beating once and a while, but not terribly hard and not terribly often. Do it too hard and too much, that's abuse.

A smack on the arse, very occasionally, yes, but a beating? No.

I've suffered a few spanks on the hands and arms, and I'm very okay with that.
It hasn't done me harm, however, it's a very thin line to draw, where it stops being okay.

Yeah I was hit as a child. I'll do same to my kids. It wasn't too hard or anything like that. I was only ever hit in the butt to. My dad would just say, you wanna whack? and i would know to not do it. I don't like to call it beating them though. I call it discipline.
#22
No, there's a difference between a light smack on the bottom or the wrist and full-blown beating them up.

i don't think thers nethin rong with a slap on the legs wen they step out of line - i was smacked and u dnt c me goin round smahin bus shelters.
#24
There's a difference between punishing your kid and beating them. If your kid can't sit down (ie. what my parents did to me) then that's beating and illegal. If you spank them for doing something bad, then it's fair game.
#25
Does anyone find the image of somelittle kid over there parents lap screaming while getting smacked on the bottom absolutely hilarious

*stops laughing*
Wait, i'm horrible.

It's wrong. And they grow up to have S&M fetishes.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

I got smacked around a bit as a kid, and I certainly do not view violence as a solution to any of my problems.

I honestly think I am the better for it. Especially considering kids behavior nowadays.

I mean, like kids who hit their parents? The idea of laying a hand on either of my parents NEVER even entered my mind because I would have been ended. And that is that.
#31
Children should be taught what a positive authority is and what a negative authority is, to question whether an authority figure is right or wrong, and to behave accordingly. Authority does not gain our respect via it's title, but by earning and deserving our trust as subordinates.

Exactly how I was raised. People don't control their kids today.

What does he have to do with beating kids? Aside from being an excessively abusive person, Duke Nukem ain't all bad.

You guys want an example. My friend was spanked as a child and as soon as his dad left and wasn't there to watch him he began smoking pot and stole over half of his moms paycheck every week. For no reason too. He would only use it to buy random things and give em away.

I'd send my kid mixed messages and beat him for a crime sometimes and other times support him as if he got an 'A' on a quiz for the same thing so he won't know what the hell to expect.
