When i was a kid my father spanked me several times, my mother too, i used to behave well but sometimes i was bad, really bad, so they did it with
their hands and with the belt if i had been really bad, now i'm an adult and i am not a criminal, not a sadist, i'm not a monster or a crazy man, they
didn't destroy men with that and if i didn't understood then why they did it now i do, so i don't see nothing bad in spanking.
I don't have kids but my sister and brother in law live with me, they have two sons that i love, the older 4 years old and the small one only 9
months, i spent a lot of time with then because my sister and brother in law work a lot, the older one is a total hellion, is a terrible kid, one of
those who fall to the floor screaming and yelling like maniacs, yesterday he was watching videos in a computer, at night it was time to sleep so my
sister turn off the computer and he started screaming, we tried to reason with him, it was late, he had to go to school in the morning, he had watched
too many videos already, we talk, and what he did?, he took his little brother and push him against a wall!!!
Of course i took the kid and spanked him because it was necessary, he got quiet, asked forgiveness and went to bed, is not the first time i had to do
it, or my sister, or even my mother, but hell yes, sometimes is the best option.
In fact, my nephew obey me more because i'm the one who doesn't make empty threats to him, when i say to him "is this we are going to do and if you
don't behave i will punish you" he know im going to do it, my sister do the same and he doesn't obey at all because he doesnt believe her.
BTW, i used to think that when i ha my own kids i would never spank them, i would never lay a finger of them but thanks to my nephew i had been cured
of that naive thinking, now i know that when i had them i would do it if necessary for they behaviour.
