I don't know whats wrong with teenagers now a days. If I talked to an adult like they do I would have got a butt whooping. I'm not blaming the parents because the law doesn't let you touch your kids. I'm not saying beat them, but there is nothing wrong with a butt whipping.

I vote we bring back the discipline with out getting in trouble with the cops.

Spanking sometimes works, but not always.
A good swat on the butt never killed anyone.

Spank them yes. Beat them no. Sadly its almost a crime to punish your kids like this because some people take it too far. I agree, I would have been whipped good for the things kids get away with today.

Whip your kids only if you love them.

I have several friends that are social workers. There is no law against spanking your kids. Beating and abusing yes but no spanking. They spank their kids. As long as its on the butt with a open hand. For parents that jerk and slap their toddlers in their mouth they just need the shit beat out of them. How ever if my adult kid 17 cuses me or disrespects me im going to smack their mouth. I feel we as true mommies and daddys want go overboard and that its our jobs to teach them. These egg and sperm donors are the ones social service need to watch. My opinion.

Well I wasn't spanked growing up, I HAD THE DEVIL BEAT OUT OF ME, lol.

But it taught me respect and the fear and the love of God.

And last but not least, the fear of my momma!
God Rest her Soul, she passed about 15 year ago, and I'm still scared of her, lol.

All jokes aside ( although I wasn't joking ), if that child needs it's tail busted, then bust it.

My three are nearly grown now, and I wish I had busted their tail a whole lot more than what I did.
I should have lined them up 3 times a day and just whipped the fire outta their tailends,because they needed it?...NO..Just because I could have! hehehe..:)

Spanking is ok abuse is not there are so many disrespectful teens out there I see them on tv and just want to smack them to knock some sense in them I blame the parents 100 percent if the parents disciplined them when the talked back lied or stole then they would have learned not to do it again r face a conscience. I say bring the Spanking back I'd vote yes

Im sorry but most kids are whipped out of anger and I find it hard to believe you can hit a kid and then say I did it because I love you. I saw what my wife's kids went through at the hands of their daddy's girlfriend and Im sorry but thats not love. I will never spank a kid again. Prime example I can spank my son but If I do the same to one of you thats domestic violence. I can go to jail for doing that to you but its ok to do it to a defenseless kid and dcs in this town will do nothing. Its ok in this town to leave bruises.

Its not her place to put her hands on those kids. I think it was the Dads place to correct his children. Its his fault as much as it was the girlfriends. I was at Walmart one time and my child thought it was ok to run through the store. No, that wasn't going to happen. I restrained him by holding on to his sweater on the arm. He started throwing a fit one woman called the cops. I get out to the car and there was a police officer. I told him if he can do any better then take him. The officer said we are just responding to a call. I didn't touch him except to restrain him. What I'm getting at is that you cant even raise your voice at your kid with out someone calling the cops. I believe in spankings but I'm the one who does it nobody else. I don't beat my kid but a good swat doesn't hert them Maybe there feelings but that's it. It could actually save there life. It saved mine. Should I let him run through the store? I know this hes not disrespectful to adults like these other teenagers.

You are so right. How dare someone spank a child. That is abuse. That child sghould be allowed to do what ever they want. It is abuse to spank their behinds. Just like it is abuse to speak in a harsh tone to a child. That is raising your voice in a threatening manner. That is domestic assault if you do it to me and I feel threatened. I can have you thrown in jail so how dare someone do that to a poor defenseless child. DO NOT even think of taking a toy from the child. That is so wrong. If you took my toy that is theft and punishable by jail time so how dare you even think of doing that to a poor defenseless child. Oh and do not dare have a child do chores. That is child labor and laws against it. Poor defenseless child should not ever have to raise a hand to wash a dish or dust a livingroom or pick up his or her laundry. That is what the adults are for. Do not even think of making a poor defenseless child do something like that.

When those poor defenseless children become teenagers and you ask them to pick up their dirty clothes and they look at you and say F U! I dont have to that is YOUR job. YOU are the parent. When you get a call from the principal because your child was disrespectful to a teacher because she asked for his or her homework that they told you they did not have any the night before. When the police officer calls you to come to the come pick up your child from the police station because they had no respect for someone elses property what are you going to do?

How dare you to disipline your child because in the grown up life you can not take away my toys, you can not spank my butt, you can not put me in time out because that is holding me against my will.
I want to wish you the best with that concept. But, obviously it is not working. Look at all the hoodlums this society has today. Why? Because it is so wrong to disipline a child. Everyone wants to be their childs best friend.

I have never had to spank my child. We have used alternative methods, lots of communication and my child tells me things I do not want to hear at times(things he has been asked to do, things others he knows are doing), but all in all is a great child. Plays two sports, honor roll, in bed by ten at night because he chooses to and is a senior this year. I grew up in the circle of abuse, and you have to make the effort to break that cycle. You really have to start early and not let your life, job and such get in the way. I left the best job I possibly will ever have because I was seeing the adverse effects it had on my children due to the hours I had to work. Parenting itself is a full time job that good parents just do not get the credit they deserve for it at times. Watching him go to college, take pride in himself and what he does as well as making something of himself will make all that hard work and sacrifice worth it!

Beating...uh NO! BUTT WOOPIN...uh, yeah...why? IT WORKS! I now have great kids that are grown and productive in this world! Why did I raise my kids like this? Because it's effective and I loved them enough to pay attention to them and what they were doing! My children didn't just grow up...they were raised!

Not spanking your child lets them grow up to believe they can get away with anything because they did as a child.

I also have a senior who is in bed by 10 who has straight A's. She tells me everything also I have raised her and chose to do without where I could stay at home. Im very proud of her also but she got spankings. She got time outs also I used all of them methods. I didn't abuse her but did dicipline her. My granny is dead and gone but there wasn't no finer women and she switched me a many of times. Would make me go cut her one also

The kids nowadays rule their house, the parents just do the paying. I see it all the time and especially at Walmart and other stores. Kids out at midnight crying for what they want, creating havoc running with carts, one hit me in the ankle and laughed, the mother just said "I told you to watch where you are running" Geezzzz, lady, he should have been in bed 4 hrs ago.
