So uh...hitting kids. 118 Lifestyle Discussion 7/22/14 10:26am
Gay African Mammoth
I dunno, someone else said they were different too, but when you read the definitions they're the same thing. Hitting: bring one's hand or a tool or weapon into contact with (someone or something) quickly and forcefully. Spanking: an act of slapping, especially on the buttocks as a punishment for children. So spanking is LITERALLY hitting but specifically...on the butt. So no, they se ...

I can relate to this, I was hit a lot as a kid and often it just confused the ******** out of me because I had questions and arguments. I agree that a lot of parents don't treat their kids like people who have minds and can be reasoned with and are very quick to hit them because it stops s**t faster than reasoning with them. But these parents are definitely abusive in comparison to parents who ...

Alright quick error fix, I ment nobody "here" participating in this ongoing conversation propagates spanking a child where it isn't necessary. At least I'm pretty sure, I haven't read every single reply. But in terms of how to deal with a child that is throwing a tantrum and you not thinking that a spanking will make it go away, that's exactly that, what "you think". There have already bee ...

I agree with you if at any point the situation can be delt with without the need to use force. Because force is a last-step type of deal with your kids, or should be. I'm still not sure if it's not entirely viable when dealing with an unruly teenager as I'm not sure anyone addressed that here yet. And I can relate heavily to what you described that you went through, sept I didn't break any ...

If spanking wasn't the answer for you and it didn't fix anything, then your mom was being unnecessary. No one propagates spanking where it isn't necessary or teaches a really good lesson. Someone in the thread spoke about spanking your kid on the hand if they stole something to show them that there are severe punishments for doing this sort of thing, and that later on in life the punishments ar ...

For sure, and I agree with you bruh. Talking over hitting is always the best way to go, when you can do that.

I get what you mean, but I don't know if I agree that spanking is automatically or inherently an act of aggression. And it sounds to me like when you were spanked or hit, your parents didn't also talk to you and help you understand why it is they did so , and what it was they were trying to teach you. Like I said to me it's not a first thing to go to, if you do then you're abusive and don't un ...

******** s**t man...this planet is ********. This is the sort of thing that makes me feel like culture propagates ignorance sometimes. That being said I don't know if it's a cultural thing or something else in specific that made your mom's country feel that whipping was such an effective means to raise a child that they created a belt for the abusive parent on the go. What is your mom's home c ...

So then do you think the issue might also more so be the fact that he wasn't taught respect if he doesn't care about what someone has to say when they're talking to him? And do you feel that your mom was just too lax with her form of discipline when it came to him? Basically how would you have done it if you were in her shoes?

As some of the posters have stated, there are times and places for it. It's not an all one side or the other. It shouldn't be the first action unless the kid needs to be stopped immediately, or simply more extreme forms of discipline are necessary. You're lumping people who believe that spanking their kid as a first result is the right thing to do, with people who feel like it can be a valua ...

Thanks for the insight, but so why do you feel your brother was inapproachable to logic and reasoning? Is it really possible for someone to just BE that way, and not learn it?

For sure this was the primary form of discipline in my household and throughout the vast majority of my extended family. It was "he's acting up? get the belt", and then like 15-40 hits. It was always clearly the adult just taking out their frustration too.

Yeah that's abuse for sure, and I share that past with you, so I know how you feel. Sept I'm extremely bitter towards my mom for handling the situations the way that she handled them. She wants me to just forget, but she hasn't changed, so that's a big no. This is of course the problem with parents who think that hitting first is the best course of action. In my case it was taught to my m ...

Well if you label hitting in this scenario as the physical abuse, and the spanking as the disciplinary action, then yes of course they're then automatically different. But if you go by their definitions I.E that hitting is the action of striking something or bringing an object to another object with force and impact...and spanking is THAT but to the buttocks, then yes they're the same.
