Bonus Question:

1) How would different cultures react to this video(cultural views on parenting)in your opinion?
[Just curious to know]



From my perspective, I think Asian cultures would be the most appalled because they are among the most strict towards their children. North American parents are the most likely to spoil their kids. Not to generalize or anything, but that's always been my impression based on what I've observed first-hand.

The French would shrug their shoulders and go "eh".


Actually, modern Chinese families spoil their children to a great degree thanks to the One Child policy. In North America, the same thing is happening, but due to a different reason. We've been fed this idea that every child is a winner, they're perfect the way they are and you can fix everything with medicine. It also doesn't help that if you spank your child you could be facing jail time and the loss of custody.

On this video; Too bad it was being recorded, because she should have slapped him right back, but harder, knocking the little shit out of the chair. Then lean in real close and whisper, "If you ever lay a hand on me or disrespect me to that degree again, I will end you."

Would have fixed him right then and there. But alas, the best we can do is tell him how him hitting us made us feel and suggest that he please refrain from doing so again in the future.

1. Spoiled little brat. Hand him to me; he'll see tears by the end of the first hour.
2. The world already sees the Western World like this while they starve and try to survive.

umm the problem isnt a lack of corporal punishment, that dosn't mean your soft. The problem is a lack of parenting or consequence of ANY kind oftentimes today. You dont need pain to learn. And seriously, fear isn't respect and only breeds rebellion, respect is when by leading through example you instill qualities of love and admiration in an individual. Violence only breeds violence. Hitting your kid to get your way(stop a behavior) only teaches them to respond the same way.

I wouldn't start insulting people for their weight or suggesting that children should be beaten.

Therapy and counseling are better alternatives.
Plus, there's a very good chance that kids grow out of being rude.

It was Dr.Phil so I am curious how much of it was real and how much was for ratings.

Making fun of the kid for his weight is indeed wrong though.

Even if it wasn't "real", the point is still that kid smacked his mom and yelled at her while the mom wasn't doing much of anything.

Violence doesn't only breed violence. It's how and when it's done that makes the impact, and if violence is the only method used. The personality of the child makes a huge difference, too. I'm from a family of three, and we were punished the same; however, my older sis is the only one who was rebellious. Conversely, both myself and my younger sis have always been very mellow towards our parents. And although we all fear our mother to various degrees, we also love, respect, and admire her.

Also, therapy and counseling aren't necessarily better alternatives. My elder sister, who I've already mentioned, briefly underwent both... Lets just say that it didn't work very well. Boot camp and natural maturation are what really turned her life around. Boot camp was her idea, by the way.

Boot camp is definitely something that kid needed.
