I live in England, where it's fine and dandy in the home, and have many friends in countries where it's just illegal.
I think it's fine, if applied correctly it can be damn effective. If you just slap a kid whenever you get a little frustrated, it's very silly, and, well, just plain mean.
My parents have slapped me like, three or four times, ever and I turned out pretty fine if I can say so myself.
NO! NOT ON ANY LEVEL!
Totally agree with you.
capital punishment works best
I need to read the bible
No. I would say, as a last resort.
Corporal Punishment was normally used in the era I grew up and I believe it made our generation better people. I am talking about spanking, not beating. As a child I was spanked by parents, teachers, scout leaders or any adult in an authority role.
My husband and I spanked our son and daughter until they were old enough to go to college. Yes, bare bottom with either a strap or paddle. Son is a successful surgeon and daughter is an attorney. Both married, extremely well-adjusted. More than once they have both thanked us for being their "north star".
No, Corporal Punishment is a horrible way to discipline kids. There are better ways to communicate with a child. Hitting a child doesn't solve the problem and you run the risk of making the child violent or afraid of you and the world. It destroys their confidence and little souls.
If your child's behavior is getting out of hand, you can always ask for an advice from a therapist or a mom with experience to help you solve the problem. A child doesn't know how to control emotions... it is learning as an adult you can have control over it.
Not for kids, or adults, or animals, or house plants.... It is not a discipline.
Once when my son was sent to time out, he turned towards me, screamed "no" and spat in my face. He deserved the three swats he got on the bottom directing him to the time out spot. It was what he needed to appreciate that I was still his mom and he was supposed to show me respect at all times.
Is it the "best" discipline? Only in very rare circumstances.
NO! Not at all, under any circumstances! Violence has never solved or taught anyone anything. Love, hard love maybe, but love is the answer. In my opinion.
best? no - but i'm not sure it should be illegal
nope. My school cane people b**tt in teacher room and even in hall infront of everyone (serious problem). But i never B*tt cane virgin. lol
It should be a part of the tools at the disposal of pairents.
I don't believe in bashing kids, thats not corporal punishment thats just abuse.
If they respond to it
