What's your opinion on corporal punishment?
Did you parents use it on you?

I think that if parents raise their kids right from the start there is no need for it. A little slap in the hand isn't bad but I'm against using belts. I hate belts. My mother never hit us but I saw my uncle hit my cousins several times.

Nope. I think it should be banned.



It's not the kids that's the problem. It's your parenting. Learn to say no and be firm. Violence will only lead to more violence, and the cycle never ends. People need to learn how to control their kids without violence.

Well, here's the truth/fact:

A little slap in the hand is bad and demonic. I don't care how hard it is, you're never allowed to smack children ever at all. What if a belt.spanker obliterate your film, that sacrificed all your money on that cost $900 centillion dollars, using a belt? Yes, you're suppose to hate all belts around the world because, they think it's okay to mess with children. People who threaten children, pets, and anybody with belts are demons. Don't ever say the word 'parents'. Don't ever say that their parents. Belt-hitting children is demonic, spanking is demonic, and hand-tapping is demonic. If you ever catch someone spanking and hitting children, even with belts, you need to call child services, right away, immeadiately. Spanking is abuse, and you need to log on to endcorporalpunishment.org and find out why spanking is abuse and demonic. There are thousands of children dying of child abuse including spanking, belt-spanking, etc.. So, do not listen to what these people are about to type to not reallize that spanking is 100% abuse and 100% demonic and to not admit that they're wrong. Spanking never works, is it is never meant to work because it's demonic. The bible never said anything about spanking, just listen to me and you, you're cousins, and all children and people around the world will be granted love, peace, and freedom from demonic abuses including spanking, etc. In closing, I would simply say that the fact is that spanking is abuse and demonic. Be sure to research why spanking is abuse and demonic.

It's suppose to be a fact.

Whenever I "misbehaved", my parents used to hit me with whatever they can get their hands on when I was a kid.

Having an Asian mother... Yeah. I got the shizzle beat out of me a number of times.

We have to keep in mind that every child reacts differently to various situations and punishments. Some are fantastic listeners and seldom require a slap on the hand if the timeout treatment fails. Others may be hard-headed (like myself) and might only understand certain actions in combination with a scolding.

I do not approve of excessive beatings or the use of items such as belts - that's beyond the point of reason. My dad's approach, when necessary, was to give a firm smack on our rear-ends with his bare hand. He then explained to us why we were punished. My dad disapproves of the use of belts (he had to deal with it as a kid) and always said when he punished us, he hurt himself in the process (hence, bare hand).

Well gee. I thought this thread was about prisons using corporal punishment instead of spanking your children.

I don't know, I probably wouldn't hit a child, a situation could call for it but I seriously doubt one will ever happen. On the opposite end of the spectrum of corporal punishment like the death penalty I don't know either., I really don't know anything at all do I?

Most people who are hit as a child are black/African American or European/white.

Slavery, the switches, belts, whips, etc, were how slaves were trained and put into submission. When they mis behaved, they got beat, not spanked(unless the handler was into that kinda thing), but beat, that's why parents use belts, switches, and the like is because it was passed down through slavery.

Violence is popular among black populations, they are particularly comfortable inflicting harm on their young, they are the most violent population in the United States, whites being the 2nd most abusive. They go for the world as well.

Hispanics can be violent as well, but it's a lower chance than a black or a white.

I'm Korean and so is one of my younger sisters, other than our deranged, pedo-father, we haven't really been hurt by relatives. But the youngest is European/Black mix and she got beat up far more often.

Other animals don't a habit of beating up their own, but those that do, only do so because it was done to them = slavery.

Moral of the story? Well, it depends, if you're a handler or a parent.

I don't have any kids, but I don't attack anyone, ever.

My folks were pretty good to me. They would yell at me and say some nasty stuff sometimes but my mom Never hit me and my Father only hit me once in all my life. It was a rare occasion that they would ever even threaten me and I was NOT a well mannered kid.
NOW my aunts and uncles would threaten me all the time with the "belt" or the "razor strap" or some other kind of abuse.... Usually only when it involved me defending myself against their kids... They never carried out any of their threats, mostly because they knew they'd have to contend with my folks . . . and if it ever came to blows, they knew my dad could kick their asses.

It isn't just corporal punishment it's all the other abuse. If you have to threaten violence on a child, you are a despicable human being. If you have to lie and play head-games with a little kid because you cannot deal with your own children's crappy behavior, you aren't really a parent.

I used to take care of kids at the church I went to for a number of years and you could tell which kids were well disciplined and which ones weren't. I also babysat for extra money and I found there are better ways than threats and violence to deal with kids. IT ALSO STARTS WITH THE PARENTS.

It doesn't seem right to strike a child, but it's more circumstantial than that. I think the severity of punishment should be in direct proportion to their cognizance as a person and the intent and extent of their crime/wrongdoing.

Don't hit a 4 year old for lying to you about the color of the sky.
But should you really lay off a 12 year old that lied about giving their relative medication, resulting in said relative's death?

This is why morality/justice is nothing but an extension of commonly held ideals that amount to self-satisfaction.

I didn't get hit much as a child, but my mom has slapped me in the face once or twice and I definitely showed my disapproval. I was and still am a "good kid," who doesn't get in trouble. I didn't accept getting hit though, so the last time my mom hit me, which wasn't because I did something wrong but because I called a brother out for throwing his life away, I hit back. I don't take shit like that, so hitting never worked on me.

So I don't know. For some, I guess it could possibly be a good way to keep a kid in line, but it sure as hell never worked on me. It would be great if all parents were able to raise us to not need to be hit, but that's probably unreasonable to think that's going to happen, so corporal punishment would probably be the better option.
