I Would Like to Know Why Someone Would Smack a Crying Child

    It Only Makes It Worse

    I got this before-I-give-you-some-thing-to-cry-over several times - and, several times, the end result. I was quite vocal before, during and after a bare-bottom spanking and Mom didn't stint when it came to a followup. It was bad enough at home, but when she took me shopping and...

    Crying Child

    It better never happen in front of me cause if it happens, nice as I am, I will turn out evil and, I may smack that person instead.  One thing about me, I am very protective when it comes to children and no one needs touching or hurting an innocent kid / child / baby, no matter...

    Makes My Blood Boil

    When I see this happening I just want to scream at the adult..WHY?????  Is it because you are too stupid to find out and understand why they are crying?  It is that you are so uncaring to find out if there is some discomfort that they are experiencing?  Are you too...

    Lost Touch

    Hello, I am lying in my bed alone, My wife no longer sleeps here. It's all too complicated to explain, but, the lonliness is dreadful. I really should leave rather than absorb the hurt she can clobber me with so easily but then I would miss my kids. I have now spent far too...

    What The Hell?!

    The kid already OBVIOUSLY feels bad, so what the eff is your problem and what is smacking the kid going to achieve? Some people are complete tools.

    What the Hell...

    Why would someone even think about hitting a crying child, or a child period! I mean, that it totally and completly messed up, on all levels! It just makes me sick that someone would do this to a child, but I do know it happens.

    Why ELSE Would They Be?

    It just compounds the problem, whatever it might be. Maybe the adult feels better after doing it, but as a spanked kid, I can tell you they feel worse. I know I did. You know if the child in question is yours whether he or she is going to shriek and carry on, especially after a...

    I Don't Remember What I Did

    I never remember what it is that I did when I was 6.  Later I remembered why he hit me, but never when I was little. What I do remember, was my dad slapping me. I didn't see his hand coming, just felt the open hand strike my face, turn my whole head sideways. I immediately...
