Hitting a kid is more wrong at certain ages. Like when you're three. Mix that with lots of shouting and hatred and you have the relationship I currently have with my father. I haven't seen him in two years.

Abusing a child pissing me off, those people that do that to their child are low lives to me. Everyone has problems, but it doesn't mean you can take it out on a child. I had my share of whooping, but I wasn't beaten.

Physical as well as psychological abuse. The lightest nicest way I can think of phrasing it in being told how "worthless" you are as a human being. Gave me issues like I didn't have enough already growing up. 20 years on, and phrases still echoes in my head. Building an emotional "mask" I wear everyday to make it through the day. Kids assume adults know everything, but it seems adults are just as confused and lost as kids are, just with a little more experience and more power. I still see myself as a monster, a scientist growing up in a semi-religious family.

I have not married or had children yet. Until I can provide a place to raise them in a sound household shielding them from my folks I hesitate. So yeah I do agree with this thread that parents can give kids anger issues.

Because they don't know how to be good parents. They resort to violent behavior to produce good results in their child, out of fear.

Abuse is usually caused by not being able to handle stress, but it can be because of the parents mental situation, and that's not saying its the child's fault, its just the weak vs. The strong I guess >_>

Some parents were victims of abuse as well. So "that" is all they knew growing up and it's what they think parenting is. Or it could be many other reasons, like they feel the child is holding them back or a burden. In that situation usually inflicting mental/physcial abuse makes them feel better. Mostly the parents have history of abuse in their childhood.

I'm not really sure how I would go about punishing my children. I don't have any yet, but when I was a kid I did occasionally get punished with physical strikes. I'm sorry, but those occasional strikes are no where near abuse. Abuse, to me, is day in day out verbal, emotional and physical abuse. Occasionally using physical punishment ain't too bad. Some kids are much stubborn than others. But I know for sure there are a lot of kids that aren't punished the same way I was for the same thing. It's just crazy how some kids are, though. Truly. Particularly juveniles.

I agree with you 100%

They get high off of it. I grew up with a father who had anger management problems, but he wanted me to see a psychologist before he saw one, but that was a problem because I have a couple mental "problems" myself... Not like they would do any harm.

Apparently in Asia, they call it "disciplining" their children lol.

Abusive parents are never right. They should learn how to raise their kids in a different, more civilized way.
The treshold for "abusive" is different to everyone though.

I had my fair share of an abusive parent, so if somebody knew the answer I'd be amazed. I still don't know why a parent can be so abusive.
