I am surprised that so few people have picked up on my earlier comment regarding the fact that most childcare centre caregivers and school teachers are able to successfully "grow" children - multiple ones at one time, without ever, ever resorting to any sort of physical chastisement.

If teachers and caregivers can do it whilst dealing with the dynamics and issues that happen though having a whole group of demanding little ones at the same time, then so can parents.
schools have long been revered for their ability to inflict emotional damage that is far more sinister than a simple smack on the behind.

Don't know if it's an urban myth, but...

In the check in queue in an airport a guy was stood behind a family where the kid was screaming its head off. The guy leans towards the mother and says "Excuse me madam but did you just hit that child?!" The mother replies with "Most certainly not!" to which the guy replies "Well, I suggest you do so immediately!"

When we grew up and went to school, there were certain teachers who would hurt the children anyway they could
By pouring their derision upon anything we did
Exposing any weakness however carefully hidden by the kids.
But in the town it was well known
When they got home at night their fat and psychopathic wives
Would thrash them within inches of their lives!

Is that really how you read that post? That's very clearly not what I was suggesting, here's a cliff notes version:

I was responding to the multiple people who attributed the rise in crime in the UK to a decrease in spanking. Considering that a rise in crime didn't take place in Sweden after a ban on spanking, clearly banning spanking doesn't result in a breakdown of society. I never suggested banning spanking would solve crime problems, only that it won't lead to an increase in crime. Hope that clears things up.
I think the multiple people you refer to were referring to lack of discipline and respect in youngsters which does not necessarily lead to reported crime, reported being the key word here.
There are many other reasons, which go hand in hand with lack of respect and discipline which contribute to the increase in crime in the UK but that's a whole other thread.

Let me give you an example:
Kids in the street in the 70's shouting and playing in the street, neighbour comes out tells them to shut up and move on or said neighbour will march them home to their parents (you get taken home to your parents by a neighbour for being 'cheeky' you're getting a smack), kids move on.

Fast forward to now, a neighbour would not dream of opening the door due to the abuse they would get from said kids, then in certain cases it goes further to windows being broken etc etc etc.

Re: Just saw a mother beating the living sh1t out of her kid in Rhine Falls area...

The one think that I have learnt as a parent is that I will need a huge amount of patience. When I give my children warnings, I don't count to 3, I count to 100. Once I get to 100, and they have not responded they get a timeout. Number of minutes according to the age. Have you ever tried putting a 3 year old in time out where they have to sit still and do nothing else? It is agony for them.

Counting also helps to calm me down and at the same time helps them learn to count..

Hitting tells the child that it is the right way to solve problems. If they don't observe their parent solving problems in a humane way, then they will learn to do hitting themselves. And the cycle continues and they will grow to become parents that hit their own children.

I am totally against hitting/spanking a child.

Perhaps some of you might be interested in The Sexual dangers of Spanking Children.

No. They learn the meaning of authority, actions and consequences. In any case, violence sometimes is a solution. Otherwise, why have armies or police?

Instantly, the judgement comes in and circular reasoning. It's also a false statement. My children do not hit. They understand that the right to smack lies with the parent and no-one else.

You might as well say that if you take toys away from misbehaving children, then they'll think it's ok to take other kids toys.

Really?

Well they would say that, wouldn't they - it's an anti-spanking site. Who is Tom Johnson? What are his qualifications? Has his work been peer reviewed, has it been published in a reputable journal? I love the logic: some sexual perverts like to spank therefore all spankers are sexual perverts.

So: failed parent, child abuser, sexual pervert. Anymore?

Is this a serious post?
If what you say is true then on every street corner of the UK there would be people over the age of 40 hitting each other, because in the 70's most kids were smacked, and before that most kids were smacked on a regular basis.

Smacking a child tells them their parent is not happy with them, they have crossed the line and it better not happen again.

As for the link, well thankfully I am not easily swayed by bull$hit, same as I do not believe every person that looks at my kid is a paedophile.

You maybe be against smacking, that's your choice as a parent but please don't try and preach bull$hit.

What do you tell a misbehaving child with two black eyes?





Nothing, you've already told them twice.

Re: Just saw a mother beating the living sh1t out of her kid in Rhine Falls area...

When I was young, my punishment for for prevarication was to be hit several times while being chased around a small tree.

I soon learned my lesson, and no more was I beaten about the bush.

If there is just one person who now thinks twice about hitting their child that this thread has influenced, then the joke is on you & if some of you think this was meant to be some kind of argument, I won it, hands down.

(though I think it will be more than just one)
