    Child Beaters Deserve To Rot In Hell.

    There's a special corner of hell reserved for this child-beating bastard. His wife's no better, she stood by, let it happen, and took part in it. Hope they both rot in hell - along with my parents.

    How Would You Allow a Child to Get That Bad In the First Place?

    I think it's wrong that a parent allows a child to behave so badly in the first place that they think they deserve it

    Spanking Children Is Wrong According To My Experience

    Spanking seems to be more appropriate for adults in the bedroom. The sexual hook up, which is common in adults, tells me that sexuality is always implicated in the spanking of children; that there is always an unacceptable risk of sexual abuse, trauma and development problems...

    I hate when parents hit or spank their children. There's no point to it and it doesn't prove anything to the child. Spanking your kid(s) shows your child that using violence is the correct way to respond to an incident in your life. Punishing your kid from something they really...
