Role Models

Is it any wonder how many still see spanking as a suitable punishment when you take the time to look at who the kids have as role models and how they behave on tv and in films?!?!
Over the years I've take in many films and tv shows and often have sat there, found myself thinking 'he/she could use a good spanking'!
A few who have definitely entered that category are:
Lucy Camden from 7th Heaven - I often found that her sassy attitude as smart
mouth should have been rewarded on more than one occasion with a swift trip across a knee.
Hermoine Granger from Harry Potter - I mean, come on, am I the only one who thinks this?!?!
Lindsay Lohan's character in Mean Girls and Freaky Friday - both showed a lot of attitude that needed correcting!
Simon from 7th Heaven - on occasion, his attitude needed stern adjustment.

It's easy to see why the kids now can be the way they are when you look at who they have to look at!
Wouk love to hear others views on this, any characters you think in your opinion could have benefited from some discipline?
Look forward to reading your responses.

Ever watch shows on Disney, i.e. Good luck charley, Wizard of waverly place, Austin and Alley, Suite life on deck and Jessie. everyone of those characters at one time or another would of been over my knee for a good spanking. These are shows that preens and teens watch. Know wonder are kids talk to their elders as they do.

I don't watch much TV, but based on what I've seen, most of the kids are whining and disrespectful and believe that the world revolves around them. The daughters on Dexter and Mad Men, and the son on Breaking Bad, come immediately to mind. Sure, the kid on BB is a disabled teenager, but every time he pouts (and he pouts ALL the time), I want Bryan Cranston to take a belt to his butt. If I had kids like that, there would be a belt or hairbrush in every room of the house.
