I'm not down with physical punishment, but I believe emotional punishment, making children feel ashamed of themselves etc would be more harmful in the long run, than someone giving their child a spank on the butt every once in a while.

:!:



Imagine if kids were doing this type of shit to each other... The outrage it would cause... I see it as no different from a kid getting another kids photo and writing humiliating shit & posting it all over for the world wide web... But because it's the parents, it's acceptable?



What a joke!

This kind of reminds me of a quote I read on Facebook. Something along the lines of "while you're trying to raise a great kid, don't forget you already have one."



Everyone is so determined to have the perfect, most respectful, smartest kid that they only concentrate on the "bad" things they do, that they have to fix. Instead of constantly pointing out a child's weaknesses, how about boosting them up with their strengths... There's plenty of ways to open up the pathway to respect and I honestly believe most punishments do more harm than good. I also believe children deserve respect, just as much as adults, but I've been told I'm a hippy so what would I know? lol.
