The problem would not exist today.
Think not.....ask the older, wiser, folks in your community and see what they think and say on this.......


Im not going to flame you for this one, because Im 100% behind it.

All of the older generations would never even THINK about backtalking there parents, out of fear they would have their backsides skinned by a nice leather belt.

The new generations are being molded into pussies.

Whiney little, back-talking pussies.

Call Social Services on me? *SMACK*

I agree, to a point. Spankings are definitely warranted, IMO. Beatings, however, are a different story. And as far as "older, wiser, folks", they may be older, but that doesn't mean they're wiser in many cases.

Yeah, parents again slacking off on the parenting. Spanking is yes. beating, no. You want to apply punishment when negative reinforvement isn't enough, but not cause the child harm. Pain, yes. I've seen abused children, ones who were beaten. They either turned into brutes themselves or cowards. Beating helps no one. Spanking is the proper application of force. But, the so called older and wiser want to ban it- shows how much they know.

Unfortunatelly, these days, if someone sees you spank your kid, you get slapped with a child abuse suit. And the kids are being taught this in school, so they tend to take advantage of it in public...

Children and youner adults are being increasingly subjected to the occult as an introduction to the dark side.

I do not see where they can handle this darkness and some of them succomb to it.

It was better when we were positive and clean and hopefull.

Now it is the trap of escaping the darkness and dissolution.
