If you had refused to stare at the corner when you were a child, what do you think your parents would have done then?
If I was older, they would have taken away privileges, like TV or dessert.
If I was younger, they would have either spanked me or locked me in the cupboard under the stairs (jk).

Also, think how betrayed a child feels if a parent hits them.
This child came into the world - it had no say in that.
This child got certain parents or parent - it had no say in that.
This child has to put all its trust in that parent or those parents....then they hit this child?
No no no, this is so wrong on many levels.

It's okay, some kids are Malleable and others are Ruthless. Parents don't get to pick which one they get.
