This is such a ******* stupid train of thought.

>I was beaten as a child
>I turned out to be a remotely decent human being
>Hitting children must make them good

You could apply this logic to anything from your childhood. My dad died when I was really young, and I turned out good, so clearly that means that everyone could benefit from having a dead parent!

Stop being so willfully ignorant and go look up some studies. Physical abuse has been proven to be an ineffective means of discipline time an time again, and if you really think that there aren't any better ways to communicate a point to a human being, let alone a child, then you are clearly not fit to be raising a child in the first place.

my parents didn't as a result I treat people as I would like to be treated; I ignore them at all costs.

You know, people make the big mistake and think that it's all about a parent's actions, and how he or she chooses to , among other things, discipline his or her child. Although there is truth to this, there is one factor that is more important, and that people (especially the ones who criticize) often overlook, and that is the nature in which the action is done.

Children are very susceptible, and easily impressionable. My father used physical punishment on me, but there is one thing I'll always remember: he was very rarely openly aggravated with me. He made a point to never punish me in anger, and was consequent about it. I always knew that when I was spanked, I had it coming, and I truly believe I was made better for it. As long as the punishment matches the degree of the child's disobedience, and as long as it is done in the light of love and to teach, then it's actually pretty hard to "break" someone.

I mean, I believe I'm a better person for it... and I'll probably be a hardass with my kids some day, because I'll care for them. Being a hardass is demanding, so unless you're a sadist that enjoys instilling fear in your offspring, you don't actually want to be one.

The job of a parent is, after all, to parent, in whatever way is best for their child. I believe my parents accomplished that with me, and I will take up the argument with any misguided, useful idiot who says otherwise.

I really hate seeing these posts.

Its currently not socially acceptable to hit your children, and many of us believe the next generation of kids are unruly and need more discipline. Honestly, I plan on being a pretty strict parent, but I dont plan on hitting my kid under any circumstances. There are ways to discipline a child without resorting to violence, it may work for some but not everyone. Hitting children has been linked to a couple types of psychological disorders and it just seems unnecessary to me.

Jesus Christ people, this post is about spanking a child for breaking something, or smacking their hands for hitting someone.

Not about giving them the belt/spoon for talking back.

Of course if you beat a child they are going to rebel and lash out and be a bigger dick than before.
But spanking a child for kicking the cat/dog or making them hold a phone book at arm's length because they prank called someone isn't going to cause them to become a psychopath.

It's all about making the punishment fit the crime. Spanking me for bad grades never changed the grades, but making me sit at the kitchen table with nothing but a textbook did.
Just like sending me to my room for hitting my brother never made me not want to hit my brother, my mother hitting the backs of my hand made me not do that.

And you know what, they prepared me for later in life, they taught me that my boss wouldn't hit me for handing in shotty reports, he'd just make me stay late, and that the fear of spending a night in jail wouldn't stop me from getting a fight, it's the fear of a cop, or someone beating me up that made me not fight people.

TLDR - This post is about discipline, not beating children.

Neither of my parents ever laid a finger on me.

Have never been arrested, never got suspended from school, I eat well and exercise, and am in college working towards a degree. I'd say I turned out okay.

Mine didn't. They were just decent people and helped others when they could.

You don't hit a child into being good.
#15 - infinitereaper (12/12/2013) [+] (2 replies)
Being hit and punished as a child just made me angry.
I realized that those with power could get away with anything and that I was the powerless sheep.
Having to bow down, having to hang your head low, just taking verbal and physical abuse... years and years of that... really left an impression on me.

Frankly I don't think that violence is always the answer.

I hate my dad because he treats me the same way he was treated by his father, if not somewhat better. Violent discipline is in no way good. It's abuse, period.

I was never spanked as a child and I still have respect...

I wasn't spanked. My parents weren't extremely strict either. I just got a lot of love and was told when I did something wrong. And I still show people respect. It's just stupid to spank children when you don't even have to, and I think some parents cross the line to beating when they think that spanking isn't enough. Most psychopaths and serial killers say that they were beaten as a child and not shown enough love. So why risk it and spank your child when you can just take the effort to raise them to be good people without spanking them?   
   
tl;dr: You don't have to spank your child to make them respect others. Just raise them right.

I was spanked as a child.

One thing led to another, and suddenly I found myself killing Jews.

"I got spanked and then I respected others."
"I wasn't spanked and I still respected others."

"I wasn't spanked and I was a little **** ."
"I was spanked and I still became a little **** ."

Seriously, this is what arguments basically consist of nowadays. Neither way of raising a child is foolproof, and when either is done wrong, will have disastrous consequences.

Going "You wouldn't spank? TOO LENIENT!" or "You would spank? CHILD ABUSER!" makes you just as bad as the parents who do a **** job of raising kids in the first place.

if you were beat its because your parents dont know how to handle a kid, you can raise a good kid without ******* beating them. if you beat a kid they often lash out.

You're not beating them, you're disciplining them for being a little faggot.
