I did, but back in the day, that was all our parents knew.  We know better now.  I spanked my kids once or twice when they were very little.  But I warned them that it would be the consequence for doing what I told them not to do and it was just a smack on the thigh or leg. 


A friend of mine and his brother got hit with a weight belt often in the 80's and early 90's (3 sets of ten). Horrifying 
His brother has severe anger issues now, hits women and goes to jail.

Now understand something guys, this was a man that was hit in the 80's and 90's. Most of you are probably fine, but got hit in the 60's or before I assume?
Kids that get hit over the past 30 years become more effected then those hit in over 30 years ago.



I remember when he became a father he never did that to his. However he gave one slap on the bottom after warning the child 10 times.

Severely, and I mean they would have gotten some serious prison time were it to occur today.  The school even knew.  It got me out of dressing down for gym class due to severity.

Now, ask me if I believe in corporal punishment, yes I do.  I agree that there are times when a firm hand is needed to get the attention of the child, but not a belt.  The parent should feel every bit of what they're doing. 

Now ask me if I ever deployed this type of discipline in any form, no I haven't.  I was not confident that I would use correctly, and wanted to break the extreme cycle of abuse I experienced.  I'm sure that my kids will use it though. 


I think its pretty rare for a child who was not hit, to hit.

I guess I was lucky. My father never hit me. He did yell at me once that I can remember. I had thrown a coffee can full of kerosene into a coal furnace that was lit. I was with my cousin Vinnie in the cellar of our three family house. My mom had a wooden long spoon that she stirred the sauce with when making it. And she would chase me with that, she didn’t hit very hard though. My grandmother chased me down three flights of stairs with the broom once. I made my aunt Anna faint by putting a big rubber spider where she would stumble on it for sure while washing the dishes.
I and Vinnie got our hands hit by a strap by the principle of the school, two days in a row. We beat the school bully up twice.

I never did, but all three of my older brothers did. Lots of times. A lot of it was a cycle. They’d make me cry, I’d run to our Mom or Dad, my brother(s) would get whupped, and I’d cry some more at the sight of them being spanked. We laugh about it now.  Smiley

Considering that it is well known that you're a liar, why don't you back that up.

Damn! kerosene into a coal furnace? You're lucky they didn't hit you. If they did, it would of been bad.

yes!  I deserved it each and every time.  I turned out alright and loved my dad for everything he was and everything he did for me.  I don't do this for my kids though.  It's as different a world now as the good old days when making it home wasted was a badge of honor!  Kids can turn out good or bad with or without "the belt", but thy need a mom and a dad.  Today, parent's are risking losing their kids if they dare to do to them what was done to most of us.  It's the lesser of two evils, not beating them even when they deserve it or beating them and possibly having your kids taken away from you and them growing up being raised by someone else.

I am by saying it. 2nd, Wadsworth is the only one that claims I have lied, just as he does to you and others that disagree with him. I guess you have something in common. The only time I lied is when I said "I told you guys Trump would win"
I have an education related to this topic, how about you?

As I said it is rare (I didn't say it never happens).  Often children that are hit at home hit other children. It's not 100% of the time. Some children that get hit don't have issues out side of the home. Often though you'll find they do have behavior issues at school and around their peers. They are less emotionally healthy. I don't expect you to understand that.

You are a great example of people that don't hit even though they were. Were you hit as a child prior to the 80's? I don't know how old you are. I ask because this tends to effect child today more then it did children of long ago. 60s and before.
