Just for clarity, the judgment said you can't spank YOUR children, so is it ok to spank someone else's naughty little brat?
If not, what about a light tazing? :twisted:

The reason kids are so disrespectful and undisciplined these days. Give them a good hiding on the ass when they deserve it. They will thank you for it when they are older.

Case in point: Me.
I was shipped off from SA to Germany when I was about 8. Could hardly speak any German, never mind write any (was just taken out of Standard one in St. Andrews, Bloemfontain). Put in a German school grade three. You can guess how it went. My maths was good. That's all that was good.
Eventually I got a big smack around the head from the teacher. I was terrified. Somehow my German instantly improved. A lot. My next test result was the equivalent of a "B" (up from my usual "F"). And that was repeated hence forth.

So - I am grateful for that smack. It worked. Never got to thank that teacher.

Bottom line: Applied correctly it is not such a bad thing. But it is misuse that is the issue here. Banning this completely is an overreaction IMHO.

Only if it actually involves a monkey, similar concept to choking the chicken..

Spanking ones child is not nearly as much fun as I thought it would be....

As usual, this is a one size fits all approach is not useful. Abusers should be punished to the full extent of the law, but rarely are. The rest of us should be left alone to try and figure out a measured approach to discipline.

I was lashed a billion times at boarding school, usually for fairly minor things, yet the one thing that stuck with me was a teacher belittling me in front of my peers when I was 12. Some of our teachers were no doubt sadists and perverts, and in being so they provided an accurate frame of reference of society as a whole, but I think they were mostly just out of ideas when it came to controlling a horde of testosterone fuelled barbarians.

I have a pin in my arm to keep it from dislocating, hitting my children normally hurts me more than them!

But yeah, with that terrorist 3 yr old the only language he understands is a pak slae!

My house, my rules? Not really. There are an endless number of evil deeds that are prohibited by law even in one's own home, eg, infanticide, spousal abuse, running a meths lab etc etc etc etc.

Interesting the comments about being thankful afterwards, FWIW, getting hidings never did anything for me except earn my undying hatred for anyone who had dared hit me. I have no respect for any of those people whatsoever, fortunately they're all dead now ...

I DID think that spanking was a good thing and yes I was whipped in school and at home... however, then I thought about how often I have spanked my children (once maybe) and how they have turned out so far and now feel that its unnecessary.

Spanking doesnt command respect, nor is it necessary in my opinion. If a parent is unable to talk to his children like human beings, and command respect by doing and not by saying then parents have bigger problems on their hands.

Yes, yes, we were all spanked and we turned out so perfectly so it must be the right way to go, right :?: BS... spanking is for parents who have run out of options...

As in all things intent is important. I certainly did not enjoy being clouted, and I certainly loathed many who lashed me, but not because they lashed me. Some were just bad apples. They were usually rightly ostracised by their peers, or actually dismissed after pushing their luck.

One fool arrived at my school from Mauritius, having never been allowed to administer corporal punishment previously. His little trick was to make people bend over and he would then give them a flying kick to the fundament. Not long after arriving he picked on the wrong chap, in the wrong class, and was promptly dropped with a right hook to the Jaw. He was fired, and the puncher received but one lash as a token punishment.

I had friends who used to take any beatings very personally, they had a tough time at school, but ironically were often the rebellious types who were always in trouble.

Why do you want to hit your own child anyway? If you cannot control your own child then the problem lies(spelling) with you not the kid! Go for a parental guidance course if you cannot manage....... There are no shortcuts in parenting!
