  • Domestic Corporal Punishment

    Now, I'm definitely not saying you should beat your kids

    but my parents spanked me as a kid and I think it did me well

    Do you, did you, or will you spank your kids?

    Re: Domestic Corporal Punishment

    Spanking is appropriate in certain circumstances. One should be careful when administrating it. It can be easy to get carried away, and you also don't want to do it so much that it has no impact anymore. I was spanked only under certain circumstances, not for every little thing done. Mostly when I was really bad, or in direct defiance of my parents. That is how I feel it should be done.

      ^^^

      Agreed...timing and administration is very important...parents always made certain that I knew what was going on and why it was happening

      One time, my mom spanked me and I chuckled...she delivered the, "we'll see what your father thinks about this when he gets home" line

      Of course he didn't spank me just to spank me....but the fear for the rest of the afternoon was punishment enough

        I was thumped in the forehead on many occasions. I wasn't a horrible child, but had my moments. I probably won't hit my children (if they are ever produced). I'm not a violent person and think there are better methods. However, I always felt Tony shoulda slapped the shit out of little AJ more than he did.

        Who knows and I'm sure my opinion is invalid for not having children.

          I'm definitely pro-violence when it comes to children.

            I grew up without spanking. I think my mother tried it once, but couldn't bring herself to do it again. I think I turned out ok-- I'm pretty disciplined.

            Personally, I think that being stern in your expectations and the applications of other punishments is just as effective. Being flakey, buddy-buddy, inconsistent or trying to reason with a child as if they were an adult is the bigger problem.

            Just my two cents as a non-parent. Parents blast away.

              This is what I wanted...both sides

              We have people in our extended family that were treated in the manner Randy described "buddy buddy", etc

              They're absolute monsters

                Domestic Corporal Punishment

                Well when I was growing up I was spanked a handful of times. And so far I have spanked mine a handful as well. However my dad instilled in me a great fear of "disappointing" him. Pretty much kept me in line, and I have done the same with my kids. Seems to be working pretty well. The kids mind fairly well, at least as well as a 3 & 5 year old can, when they are at my house. Now at there moms house they don't mind for crap but the ex wife "feels like they are best friends", right up until the point she calls me to talk to the kids.

                  This is almost the same way as how I was handled. I was brought up with the great fear of "disappointment." This is mainly what kept me in line. There were times my dad would just sit me down and say "we don't do this this way." and I knew not to cross him. I was only spanked in special circumstances.

                    Re: Domestic Corporal Punishment

                    Spanking is something bad parents do to make themselves feel better about their child's bad behavior


                    just my 2 cents


                    that being said, I've found it necessary on a few rare occasions, but I reserve it only for the most serious of offenses

                      spanking is fine (if they are your kids)
                      beating is not ok

                      my dad would make us go out and pick our own switch, then he would wrap it around our thighs instead of butt cheeks because he knew it stung worse that way. I always thought that was a bit much.

                          For me, this goes without saying. If some other jag parent spanked my kid, I wouldn't be cool with that. I don't want my kid acting up at someone else's house, and that is behavior that should be corrected, but let me correct it.

                          Also, I think some Christian schools still allow spanking, and I'm not down with that either

                            You couldn't even find a picture that actually had Chris Farley in it? You're such a lazy piece of dog shit.

                              I think it needs to be reserved for special occasions, otherwise it loses it's effectiveness. It's not for everybody and good for you if you never have to spank your kids, but it's the trump card in my household.
