I spanked my son twice. Once when he was 2 and he tried to run into traffic, I spanked his hand. And the one time at 6, he decided to write on the computers and walls, which he had never before. I cried so much afterward;I believe parents or people who want to abuse a child is going to do just that. With or without whoopings.
I do support a parents right to discipline their child, including spankings.
There was a time when our parents did beat their kids using the slave owners methods.
One of my uncles would hang his boys from the basement pipes naked and beat them. Wasn't against the law then. My own Dad(RIP Dad) would tie my older sister and brothers to the pipes under the sink and beat them.
I would cry and run to my mother(RIP Mom) while they were being beat. I had never received a wooping from my Dad. Mama said he would never whoop me. She eventually got him to stop. They were straight off the sharecropper farm and these whoopings seemed normal.
I spanked my son because he responded to spanking with better behaviour. Having him stand in the corner would accomplish nothing for my child.
In ATL there are these groups of young Black youth on a crime wave of car jacking, home invasions, and holding people up on the streets in broad daylight and darkness. These kids are 13, 14, and younger.
Now the parents of these undisplined children are called bad parents. Why?
These young boys and girls need their butts spanked.
Either we discipline our kids or the police will.
I was not completely against whuppings. I reserved the right to decide if they were needed, He's grown now amd i didn't need to whip him. In retospecr I only should have whpped him for running into traffic,
Now my nephew,,,,, He puzzles me. They beat him, knock him upside the head, etc. He is past the point of being whipped. I believe that have topped out on whppings. He is willing to take the consequences.
And I wonder if they could have raised him without whuppings. What would be have been like,
