Hell F***ING no! Inflicting even the slightest pain on a child counts as crossing the Moral Event Horizon to me.
When I see 10 year old kids at stores start hissyfitting; crying and grabbing everything off the shelves and throwing it on the ground over a toy, I seriously think they should get hit. When your mind is that twisted and spoiled mere words won't get through to them --- 23/11/12 Me: WTF Why do you have 6 boots? NoobElise: Aren't I a spider?
I do not support child abuse but I do think think children need to be corrected by spanking in very, very few cases.
What you do to correct your child is up to you.
I went to a restaurant with my mom the other day and this 6 year old was raising all sorts of s*** and all the parents did was shush the child which did nothing.
S*** if that was me my mom woild have used the plate to turn my ass into some shade of crimson that is only seen on horror movies. --- Pokemon Black FC: 1206 7087 1869 [Vesper] Pokemon Black2 FC: 0648 3939 0779 [Brandon]
Parents this day and age just spoil the F*** out of kids and then wonder why they turn out so bad.
I honestly don't get it, if your kid is being an ass to you, how do you think buying expensive things (worse so for families that are struggling) will at all change that? I'm really spoiled and am surprised how I am today compared to my drug using friends. --- FC White: Claire 3267 4946 2393
