  • No, I have never been hit by my parents and I'm very, very much against it myself. I don't give a rat's ass about some people claiming that there's supposedly a difference between spanking a child's butt and hitting it across the face. It doesn't matter. Hitting your child is wrong in ALL circumstances and it doesn't achieve ANYTHING. Hitting is simply an expression of bad parenting. If you want your child to learn something from his/her mistakes, the punishment has to have a direct connection to whatever the child did wrong. By hitting a child, all you'll ever teach it is fear, insecurity, and a feeling of worthlessness and humiliation.

    • Funny, I've been spanked and never learned any of things you're saying. I only learned not to repeat the mistakes. I also respect my parents more now. And I don't care what people think I'm disciplining my children.

      "NUMEROUS STUDIES have found increased risk of impaired child development from the use of corporal punishment. Corporal punishment by parents has been linked to increased aggression, mental health problems, impaired cognitive development, and drug and alcohol abuse. Many of these results are based on LARGE LONGITUDE STUDIES controlling for VARIOUS confounding factors. Joan Durrant and Ron Ensom write that "Together, results CONSISTENTLY suggest that physical punishment has a direct causal effect on externalizing behaviour, whether through a reflexive response to pain, modeling, or coercive family processes"

      It's insane that people like you are even allowed to attend a university in the US because clearly you have about as much knowledge and understanding of science as some peasant in the 10th century. It's also not surprising that you come from the US because it's the only western country where people like you exist.

    • So to make it short, I feel bad for your future children and it's a shame that people like you are even allowed to get children. There are thousands of couples who wish they could have a child and then there are people like who think it's totally acceptable to beat a human being who's 2 ft shorter and 100 lbs lighter. If you want to bully someone, at least have the decency of get yourself somebody who can defend himself/herself.
      And that's it. I'm gonna block your ass cuz I will not continue to argue with a person who thinks it's okay to abuse children.

  • My mother did the ass spanking but it was weird and I think kind of traumatizing for me because of the kind of vulnerability associated and the kind of weird fetishes people can have with spanking, plus she did it for things that I wasn't guilty of doing but was just having her own emotional fit and thinking I caused trouble.

    I went to primary school in Japan and my teachers had a much better punishment that didn't have that kind of weird effect. When I got in trouble, my teachers made me hold two buckets of water with my arms outstretched. I was not allowed to spill the water for ten minutes or lower my arms or else I would have to do it again the next day. That helped not only teach me my lesson but helped to make me stronger.

  • I think with all things there is a spectrum, I think corporal punishment and spanking in particular should be used sparingly. That's how I was raised and I really only got spanked a couple times when I was really young.

    I'm against it
    It teaches nothing but fear
    Fear is a poor external motivator

    The concous is a powerful motivator

  • I remember being spanked once.

    My and my brothers were very brow beaten by my mother. We had extremely strict rules and if we didn't follow them, we were denied food and drink for the night.

    Generally, we didn't step out of line. The only one who did was my oldest. And he was kicked out of the house several times a child by my mum and sent to the army.

    You can probably tell she was a lovely woman. That's why we haven't seen or spoken for 8 years.

  • Pro whooping. I know, sounds terrible.
    But I have seen TOO many children who have been spoiled when they were very young and never got a small spanking to help them know right from wrong.
    I feel like a small spanking is okay, as long as it's not going to damage the child's body permanently and the child learns from it.
    I was definitely spanked and never ever again did I do my wrong doings.

  • I got my ass beat as a kid, and sometimes with sticks, switches, sandals, wired hangers, leather belts, I got punched, and etc. I think that I'm an in betweener. I hate beatings, and or when parents beat their kids. However I have dealt with some kids (bad ass kids) who needed them but didn't get any discipline. I think beatings may be necessary, but also I think there are other ways to punish kids without beating them.
