The punishment she was given is standard stuff. I use to get whipped as a child and honestly.. I'm very greatful that I was.
I attribute the good dicipline my parents gave me to the person I am today.
To those of you that consider this over the top, I think you aren't clearly looking at the big picture here. Society operates on threats and
punishment... Why is it that we would seek to punish that man if we truly believe that punishment does not teach or correct behaviours?
This strikes me as nothing short of damaged logic....
Now if the parents were drunk, or substance abusing, and just beating their child for absolutely no reason, then sure.. that is DEFINITELY abuse and I
have no tollerance for that. I also agree that punishment should be given with a clear mind and calm attitude. and then after it's been done an
explanation of what needs correcting should always be given.
I think society has a sickness, we are trying to take all responsibility from the parents of the children and hand this to the state so that parents
are no longer in any authority role to look after and be in control of how their own offspring turn out. We are trying to box in society.. and
unfortunately it's the bleeding hearts and do-gooders that lead this weaponless warefare.
I think that there is a respectful age where a child and physical punishmens should stop and be replaced by new mature tactics... but children.. well
they still DO NOT KNOW the difference between right, wrong Yes and No.. sadly it seems that if these aren't introduced to children at a younger
age.. they never learn and we are starting to reap the fruits of this in society now with youths becoming more and more problematic and
I could go on but I have better things to spend my time doing... I just find it odd at how many people are lining up behind support against physical
punishment or punishment in general and yet.. we use these same means to deal with offenders in society as part of our legal system...?? what's
with this.. unexplainable broken logic?
