I never got the belt, but I still have a high enough moral standing to not be a cunt to everyone.

What OP really remembers

mfw OP's parents failed him by beating him, and now tries to convince people that it was for good.

Mutual respect between me and my parents, developed through conversation and explanation, is what made a decent person. Not being beaten.

I really like hearing people's personal opinions on this issue.

Personally, I was spanked as a child, and a couple of times I got the slipper, and the belt.
I don't however, feel like I learnt a moral sense of right and wrong from the experience, in fact, I think it encourage violence TOWARD my parents as I got older.

Don't get me wrong, I love my parents, but I would not adopt the same method.

In the same way I treat my dog with humility and train him using a reward systems rather than a punishment one, I aim to treat my child in a similar way.
Discussion, encouragement of good behaviour and spending time with your children goes a long way.

My mother tried spanking me once, and I just couldn't take her seriously and started laughing my ass off. I haven't been spanked since.

before my whippings when i sassed my mother, my dad always just told me to upstairs and prepare for my spanking... which to most kids would mean, cry, think about what youve done and that **** . I would go upstairs... and prepare. Id put on 17 pairs of underwear. then id put my jeans on over that before my dad came upstairs to whip his now deformed son.

Who the **** uses a braided belt? Straight leather has a much cleaner strike.

Is it better to raise someone to do what is right through fear of punishment?

Or better to raise someone who stands for justice, morality, compassion and sympathy?

Is it better to take the time to actually explain to your kids about the world, about life,
about humanity and how we are all in the same boat?

Its easy to hit someone, its easy to use fear, its easy to take the easy way out, but
honestly, I'm tired of this type of parenting method being praised

Depending on the kid I might knock his **** out, but with my hands, and not
excessively, just get their attention

As a child I knew there were things I didn't understand, I've always cared about
others and if I ever acted out is was for a basic sense for justice. My parents were never very bright, they never had reasons just rules, mandates of society and all that. I basically taught myself right from wrong

My parents hit me, all it ever did was make me hate them and want to kill
the stupid ******* , don't get me wrong they took care of me, and I love them
but they always hit me for stupid ****

You know, maybe it's just me, but I was always a pretty good kid, despite only having been spanked three times (that I can remember at least, the last time I remember being spanked was 15 years ago, so it's been a while)... I think the problem is that nobody ever teaches kids WHY they shouldn't do something, they just teach them what the penalty is. This does not teach good behavior, it only teaches kids to hide bad behavior to avoid punishment. If you don't teach a kid WHY they shouldn't do something, they will have no reason to not do it again if they think you won't find out about it. That's why I think I ended up such a good kid, because I was taught WHY I shouldn't do certain things.

On a somewhat unrelated note, I've also noticed that parents teach (or try to at least) their kids ******** lessons, like how they should always respect their elders. Respect is not something that is earned simply by being older than dirt. If you are a racist, misogynistic asshole, I don't care if you're in your 80's, you are not getting respect.

Teach kids to think, not to just follow the leader. We need more shepherds, not more sheep (so to speak).
