With a name like Shotgun, I'd do anything you told me to do!
What's Your Opinion Regarding Spanking A Child?
While I believe spanking can be a correct form of discipline, it should never be done out of rage and as far as I'm concerned
but that's exactly what you did with that other person's child isn't it? or am I reading the account wrong?
No, I was not enraged when I spanked her. I didn't yell, I gave her two taps on the bum and calmly said "If you ever kick me again, you'll get it twice as hard." This is not being enraged. Enraged, to me, is when you hit a kid all over----like on their head, face, back, arms or legs, yelling at them at the top of your voice. There's a world of difference. I didn't physically hurt her, I didn't yell at her but she knew exactly why she was getting spanked.
There's nothing worse than seeing a little brat in a temper tantrum in a public place while mommy tries to "reason" with the child......That's when a child needs a dererved tap on the ass.
She uses the Invisible God of the Universe Jehovah as her touchstone to make BBgun behave properly, please Jah, love Jah, Jah doesn't like that..and so on.
Itry to use love of family and wanting to please each other as the touchstone, a tangible and visible relationship which has true meaning. BBgun will sometimes cry when I tell her how much she's hurt my feelings by doing something which endangered herself or by being disrespectful.(maybe girls are different) Shithead.....I mean Shotgun, that was beautiful.....and I mean that!
How much better to teach reality, and love of each other, rather than make it a duty to a deity. The diety would be more pleased anyway I would think, doing it your way.
Now that I was being nice.......can I call ya a pudhead just for the fun of it ya sick bastard?
Mary I do believe that you weren't enraged. but you sure were mad, weren't you?
to me, it's all iffy. yes, I know some kids who are absolute brats and will act insane out in public. maybe its stupid to reason with a child while in the middle of a tantrum, maybe a spank is justified. but I've also seen kids who act 10 times worse when spanked, so then, what do you do? what will a kid do when spanked in public? cry and cry, but then what? will the spanking really make him act better next time? by the time I was about 10 I knew how to do things in such a way so as to avoid getting caught by my mother and not get hit. wouldn't all kids who get spanked do the same? so then what does spanking really teach them?
I spanked my little girl till she was about 5. She's 30 now(gawd I'm old)
Sometimes when I spanked her I was pissed and I think some are being unfair to say you shouldn't spank when your pissed. You spank a kid..... WHEN they do whatever they did to get one......right then. (I'm not talking about in public) It's at THAT time you as a parent are pissed. You tell your kid 2 or 3 times not to touch something and they do it again and you get pissed they didn't listen. They defied you on purpose and knew better, at least in your mind. Next....you whip their little arse for not listening and obeying what you asked of them. Is that not human? Is it unreasonable?
As I've gotten older I have wondered whether there are other ways to train a child without a spanking as people train dogs without spanking them. People train dogs without "using the rod" even on a dog, but does it work with a kid? Some might only grab their kids arm and squeeze it harder than normal to show the kid who has the power, but not spank. Is there a difference? I've seen kids where spankings did nothing, and other kids in which a harsh scolding word did the trick. All kids are different, but I'm a believer in a spanking isn't going harm a child. I could be wrong.....but so far I've been correct 100% of everything I've ever said
I believe that sending a child to
it'shis/her for a time out only teaches them a hostage confinement techniques!!!!!!!!!
mac, bottom warming class
I believe that sending a child to it's room for a time out only teaches them a hostage confinement techniques!!!!!!!!!
You been watchin "The Silence of the Lambs" again haven't you? He only wanted her skin ya knucklehead
I believe that sending a child to it's room for a time out only teaches them a hostage confinement techniques!!!!!!!!!I believe that referring to a child as an object only teaches them to confuse themself with their toys
