The men in my family don’t play when it comes to stuff like that

He was a horrible man, and totally not close to us.
What if it your daughter
Was he wailing on her? Or was it just a swat? The details are to vague.
I guess a swat, but it made him cry
One of my sons would cry if you scolded him harshly. The other 2 had thicker skin. He was a good kid, the other 2 were more spirited like me and could take a whooping and still walk that thin line. But if this great-uncle was that monsterous he wouldn't be around the family at all.
He could as well slap your wife
If that happens he'd probably get the scissors to family jewels.
Why? I don't see anything wrong
Funny you are a child beater but not s woman beater.You are strange
Kids should learn what no means before life pulls the rug out from under them. And to be clear I'm not beating my kids I'm teaching them. To be stronger and not to expect handouts for being a nuisance. Most parents haven't got a clue how to parent. They quit parenting at the step of grounding.
He wasn't paralysed, he was a psycho
Look at that loser who said yes
Stomping on a bird
Do you realize that cruelty to animals is a sign of future misdoings, such as being a serial killer or school shooter?
I think we went a little over the edge there.
A child doesn't know what they are doing, so that's irrelevant
You must be a huge push over letting strangers beat your kids
He wasn't a stranger, he was a family member (uncle).
Unrelated to the parent of the kid who hates him. The guy was a well known psychopath
Funny how you try to portray him as an uncle when he would be unrelated to the parent.You are pathetic
You said quote, " who was your dad's uncle", which makes them a family member. In some families all the adults are responsible for discipline. The problem being the parents may work and not be home all the time so someone needs to step in with discipline. And you also didn't specify what kind of hitting. Playful, a light swat to the butt, or a punch that send them across the room. You could be a bit more specific in your questions.
You have mental problems
I was spanked while being raised. I am not speaking of abuse. Just whatever discipline you choose should be left to you. That's all I meant
If you don't mind other men hitting your child, then sorry you are a complete losee
I mind anyone laying hands on anyone. I was taught a father disciplined the child out of love. I am in agreement with you, but I also like to avoid needless confrontation. If the discipline was out of love, I simply mean to recognize that. If it is abuse, I don't condone it. It takes a village to raise a child, and we do best when we are forgiving of others and their mistakes.
You sound like a push over
Well I am 5 ft 6. I was bullied a lot and have self Esteem Issues. On top of that I haven't slept a restful night my whole life. I am not a pushover. Just tired of fighting when forgiveness is easier
