I don't spank because my kids are too young and they arn't that bad yet. a good parent won't have to use much spanking if they bring them up well.. good job.. S&F [/quote
no beating of anyone
but a smack is sometimes necessary
why do people react so badly when I say I do believe in a certain amount of punishment?
I shout at my cat 'no'
they reckon I should use a water spray
ifthe cat is backing up to my computer to pee on it I should water spray the cat and so get water on my computer and have it fail because electricity and water dont mix? should I throw something to make a noise? if miss I could hit the cat and knock it out!
so I shout 'no'
why is that so horrendous?
why is it so bad to do things which do stop the cat peeing on my things? shout 'no' and occasional couple of smacks and some time out in a carry cage and the cat is cured of 6 years continuous peeing daily all over the house
so what was so wrong with that? nothign else worked - nothing - I tried everything
I resorted to those 3 punishments as a last resort and I am the monster
but think about it - if a cat pees all over the house and you dont cure it you will likely have the cat put down
so isnt it better to shout 'no' or to give it a couple of smacks or to put in carry cage for 30 minutes as a time out?
and with children - isnt it better to smack a few times and so maybe they will not grow up to commit crimes? and end up in jail
for the record I smacked my cat 1 time in 10 years - only 1 time

A little smack on the lower leg and a warning not to do that again.
That protected kids, and they knew where they were.
The whole politically correct thing has wrecked the world and led to lies and mayhem.

now what about pets? people are complaining their pets are peeing or pooing in the house or scratchign or biting them
if 1 little smack or 1 little time out in a carry cage fixes the problem fast why is it so bad? I am not advocating abuse - just a smack as a last resort or time out in a carry cage for 1 or 3 hours during the night?
so these people who do not approve of punishment meted out to a child or a dog or cat - they can have problem children and problem dog and problem cat.

It is a proven fact that you psychologically learn something specific if you learn it with pain stimuli included. In fact this is probably the most efficient way to learn something, because you'll learn it if you don't want to continue getting hurt.
This is more effective on young children too since they will rebel more UNLESS they know you aren't screwing around.
I'm not saying beat your kid, but some textbook spanking doesn't cut it most of the time either. It's all up to the parents' discretion.
