10. The cycle of violence

Continues.

Some humans can accept physical abuse and bury it or fight back and toughen. Some are damaged for life mentally. I was way way too sensitive as a child and responded very badly to physical punishment. I was scared of my father and have hated him thru his death and beyond. Do you want that as part of a relationship in your family dynamic?

23. I too agree 100%.

I was an abused child - the emotional last throughout one's lifetime.

6. Never

I still have psychological issues from corporal punishment and threats of it.

Why is it legal to struck a child when, as adults, itís considered assault?
It causes psychological harm and I hated my father until he died. And still do.

Physical punishment is a vicious cycle that begets more violence, hate, fear, retribution and long lasting psychological issues.

No, just no.

13. What?

No, never. Not in the schools, and not by people who aren't thier parents. In fact, It should not even be done by their parents.

Children should be disciplined, but never physically punished. This is not the way to deal with disobedience. It's sadistic and sick. It says a lot more about the person who is punishing than it does about their victime. It is so incrediby screwed up!

14. Wrong. It is the lazy way. Fear does not create a foundation or is effective. It is a failure.

3. They were gonna paddle me in middle school

Because a bully played poor widdle me when I hit him to escape when he tried to trap me against a wall with his buddies. And the adults believed that asshole.

So I was in the principals office when he took the paddle off the wall.

I told him go ahead hit me. It's not any worse than what I get at home because of my drunk ass father.

Nothing worse than the asshole kids do to me in this school. Go ahead beat the shit out of me if it makes you feel better.

He didn't paddle me.

I'm just glad I had the presence of mind to say that.

15. I went to a school up north for 3rd and 4th grade where the principal had a "paddle room"

She was also the 4th grade teacher. I find it hard to believe now, but I know it happened. The usual recipients were a pair of boys in my 3rd grade class who really were incorrigible. But this was in the '60s, I can't imagine this ever being allowed now.

And I'm glad to hear that you escaped paddling. No child deserves that.

24. Child abuse must never be normalized

Physical,emotional,
mental,financial and sexual.

Adults should have to get licsences to have kids. Go through a full psych test, a temperament evaluation, an empathy evaluation.
And couples therapy.

Before they bring another innocent vulnerable kid into this harsh world.

They have to be able to cope with a child upending thier lives. And they have to prove they really want the child. An independent being that might not
do as they say or do
What they want.

Parents need also to be checked on,not only to check about abuse,but also to get the parents help if they are struggling.

I think tribal style life would help kids,go back to the village model.

5. My wife is 5'4". 120 lbs wet. You hit her kid like that in front of her and you'd have hell to pay.

I got whipped as a kid because my dad thought that was how you raised children. He was wrong. He was a great father but those times are forever engraved on me of times he let his emotions get the best of him.

Normally he corrected my behavior thru reason and embarrassment which was much more effective. The few times he whipped me just created anger and resentment.

That woman needs to be charged with a crime.

7. Yup! Agree.

Anger and resentment and for me, fear and nightmares I had till he died. I hated my father so I lost a critical relationship bond that has effected all my adult male relationships.

Our criminal justice system no longer includes corporal punishment as a form of punishment, why is it OK to beat children?

17. '...and youd have hell to pay.' AGREED.

Every mom I know would make that bitch come through THEM FIRST with that paddle. Some of those moms, had not great childhoods of their own, and as an unfortunate consequence damn well know how to take a hit.

And how to hit back.

18. My parents were both spankers.

They didn't really "decide" to use corporal punishment; it never occurred to them not to. To them, that was just what parents did, including their own parents and the vast majority of other people they knew.

Fortunately, my sister and I both survived without major damage. Unfortunately for my niece and nephews, my sister and bil became religious fundies, and they bought into that "spare the rod and spoil the child" garbage.(Yeah, I don't get it, either.) DH and I never spanked our daughter. She grew up to be a well-behaved, upstanding citizen, as did 2 of my sister's kinds. The other two of my sister's kids have both had varying amounts of trouble with law. So much for the "magic" of spanking!
