Who the hell here is talking about severe beatings???!!!
Who's talking about beatings full stop?
I'll tell you this right now that most of my friends whose parents let them do whatever they wanted and didn't punish them are/have been in prison.
They are scumbags now.
When I did something completely out of line when I was young (and when I was young I thought I was always in the right, we all did) my father would
give me a good whack with his slipper and ground me.
After a while, he didn't even have to do that, he'd just give me that look like he was about to and it'd put the fear of God into me of what
I'll tell you this right now, I look back and I realise that he saved my life. He's the most loving and kind man in the world and because he had to
make the hard choice of smacking me across the arse of whatever saved my life.
And it wasn't that I didn't do bad stuff in case he'd hit me, it was because I didn't want to let my parents down and hurt them so bad that
