What is that? You beating them instead of them beating each other?

My children are pinching and poking and pushing and arguing and grabbing and hurting each other constantly. I understand the desire for them to go out in the yard and get it over with. I also consider that a better solution than my "oh so kindly" asking them to stop, because that doesn't work.
Now, I will say that I wouldn't put it on facebook though.
This made me LOL!!! Thank you.

If you consider a hickory beating then I guess so. I got the hickory many of times and I turned out just fine. My parents taught me to respect my sister and other women not beat on them. This lady is teaching this young man to hit women which will in return land him assault on female charges in the future and jail time. Great job! We will end up paying for his criminal charges with our tax dollars.

I totally agree with "spare the rod, spoil the child", but must also consider that there are hundreds of people in various positions of "authority" that are just looking for people who abuse their children, and that North Carolina's DSS/CPS system is the easiest to get into, and the hardest to get out of. Goodness knows they can't go after the "minimum parenting" parents, who do nothing to try to control or discipline their children, so all the workers have to do all day is try to find the line between good parenting and abuse. Hmm, if that was "good parenting", I may not have a job. Must have been abuse.

So, my choice is between "use the hickory" once, and then my kids don't have a parent for the rest of their adolescence, or I figure out something else. Like maybe, go outside and get it out of your system, so maybe we can have peace for a few days.

Not to knock the CPS/DSS workers, I don't envy them. They are in a damned if you do, damned if you don't position.

I remember a good hickory stick on my back side, but I'm the baby in the family, so I never got it that much. I remember our maids would come after us with a stick she took off of tree, but we would run from her and hide under the house. Needless to say, she quit, as well as the others. They didn't play with us or interact hardly at all. All they did was sit in front of the TV with their scarf around their head and cry watching the Guiding Light.

I agree with your DSS philosophy, but there is many other ways to stop children from picking at each other. You don't encourage a male to beat up on the female. In this particular case the kids are teens and that is teaching them bad morals. Sounds to me the kids are bored. Give them something to do. Take them bowling or something. She could even just make them run laps around the house to burn off energy. At that age punish them by taking their phones and facebook away. Don't teach a male it is ok to lay hands on a woman. It is wrong. Honestly I believe DSS could have a problem with that also. I don't see where they could justify putting two teens in the yard and telling them to fight it out. Your right DSS is damned if they do and damned if they don't.
