You and the teachers should have. Time out has ruined a whole generation. Kids today don't know there are consequences for their actions. Now we got a bunch of useless kids who don't want to work and think the world owes them everything. They got a trophy for just participating. Everybody that got their butts beat grew up just fine. I just don't even know what to think about some kids today. Maybe you should have whipped your kids.

I certainly am in favor of warming up some young misbehavin fannies! Of course then we soothe them with a nice gentle shower.

i have family that owns a daycare. I have seen lots of kids come and go. Why is it the parents that won't spank their kids are the ones whos kids that misbehave the most? They are always the meanest kids. ALWAYS!

I spank my children and they are well behaved in public and at home. They have respect for people and know that if they get out of line there will be consequences. My sister on the other hand has three children that are literally bouncing off the walls, respect nothing and no one and have never been spanked. She counts....1,2, 2 1/2..... and even when she does get to 3 she does nothing! It is so frustrating! Her kids run all over her and its gotten to the point that i wont be seen out with them. The kids are school age and are constantly in trouble. Not that my kids are perfect in any way.... but my sister and i grew up the same, we both got "spankings" (not many....we didnt push our parents buttons because one whipping lasted a while), i cant figure out why in the world there is ZERO discipline in her house. I cant see the benefit of it at all. Is there anyone out there that can honestly say they dont whip their children and that their children behave well?

My step daughter is 18 and I still spank her bare bottom. Problem is she kinda seems to like it. She squirms and squeals.

All the kids have "A.D.D"...."A.D .H.D"..now a days..whip their butts!! We didn't have all these fake disorders ...we got our butts beat and we walked the line real quick. Parents don't want to hurt their kids feelings. Or tell them "No"..they are afraid to make them mad...they want to be their best friend instead of their parent. Kids also have been taught that if they are made to do something they don't like or if they get punished then they should call 911 or DHS....things sure are a changing since I was a kid. I didn't look at my parents funny or make that hissy fit sound (you all know the one) in fear of losing my left eye or my front tooth, and it worked. Kids are spoiled rotten, and only have their hand out for more.

Hell, I'd almost be afraid to spank a child these days! This was in a different state but in 2002, CPS took our 9 yr. old son and 2 yr. old daughter away for three months because of an anonymous hotline call alleging that we beat our children. My daughter was playing in the front yard and had put something in her mouth and choked on it so I beat on her back to dislodge the object and this was misinterpreted by some ignorant do-gooder as child abuse. Of course a 2 year old can't defend my actions so it was my word against theirs even though a doctor was able to confirm my story. You can't even save your kid's life anymore without having your life turned into a living hell so I'd imagine spanking isn't much easier to get away with.

As long as you spank with your hand, on your childs rear end only there is nothing anyone can say as long as you dont cause bruising.

I never really got spankings, mainly because I never really pushed my parents. But I know my parents got limbs from a tree to the backs of the legs, and their parents the same... Look at their world then compared to ours now... They were doing something right back then. It's sad that there is actually a law on how to "properly" spank a child

I agree with a lot of you. I spanked my kids when they got out of line,I listened to people say we shouldn't spank our kids. There's a difference between discipline and abuse. I never abused my kids, I spanked them when I thought they needed it. I didn't do the "counting" thing.
Some kids today will tell their parents if you spank me you'll be arrested. Hog wash.

If my kid ever said something like that to me I'd give them a reason to call!

Women were much more respectful to their men folk years back also.Before they were allowed to vote you had more control over them.We need to take away those rights and get them in line again.

My grandparents raised me, and my mom raised my siblings. I was whipped when I needed it, whether it was with a belt, a switch ( I had to cut it myself, and if I bought in a little flimsy one, I was in bigger trouble), their hand,or pretty much whatever they could get their hands on. My siblings not so much they could, have gotten away with anything, as my mom wouldn't do much to them. I turned out just fine, my siblings on the other hand, to this day run a mock and have been in jail. I tried once pulling the whole " If you touch me I'm calling the cops" Then they left and I got my ass beat again. I am a firm believer in " Spareth the rod, spoileth the child." If more parents whether it be this generation, last generation or generations to come, whipping your children is not abuse as long as you dont do it accessive. I can remember back that, I got my ass busted sometimes 6 or 7 times a day for not listening, rolling my eyes, sometimes not even doing half the crap the kids today do. I thankG God that my grandparents taught me, "yes ma'am and No Ma'am" and respect. I don't have kids, but I can say that when I do have them. I will most likely have the say disiplinary actions as I was given. As it teaches respect not only for there elders, the people around them, and there selves. There is a time to be and parent and there is a time to be your childs best friend. Dont hand them $ 20 and tell them to get out of your hair like so many parents do nowadays. Then 6 months down the road say " I dont know how my daughter got pregnant and hooked on drugs, or I dont know how my son could be locked up behind bars and on drugs" People be parents and teach your child there are consquences to not following the rules. Whipping you children is not abuse. There is a difference in punishment and beating them.

I remember getting my rear end set on FIRE because I tried to steal some toys from the neighbor's kid. My momma took me back to their house, found a switch and whipped my ass right there in the front yard. I never tried to steal anything again.

How come you can't beat on your wife or your friends or neighbors but lets beat on those LITTLE people.
I myself think you ought to pick on someone your own size.
So you got beat and your fine?I see you still carry those same sadistic traits and still think it's fine.

Because people over the age of 10 ought to possess enough rational thought and critical thinking skills to know whether something is right or wrong and respond appropriately to verbal or non-tangible punishment. You can't have a rational discussion with a person who hasn't developed rational thought. A smack on the hand or the ass is easier to understand.
