Nana's Vibrator: you're misguided and lazy for striking a 3-5 year old, as there are better ways to get a child's attention and teach them how to properly behave and react.

Very true.

ikanreed: Discipline is having a set bedtime.

Discipline is between two consenting adults.  Spanking is only one part of it.

What about spanking somebody else's child. My neighbor's daughter certainly needs it, prancing around in that cheerleader uniform.

js34603: What I don't get is why stop with kids? If spanking is such effective discipline let's start spanking adults. That'll learn 'em.

Missed your work deadline? Time for a spanking.

Speeding? Get my belt.

DUI? You best believe that's a paddling.

Once you spank them a couple times, they'll never commit another crime or miss a deadline.

When one of my employees missed their deadline through goofing around I took away their iPhone, made then stand in the corner of my office for an hour and told them they weren't allowed to go home and see their friends for a week.

Funny - that didn't go down to well either.

mafiageek1980: The_Sponge: mafiageek1980: 1). Is there a safeword involved? Otherwise, unless you pre-discussed it with your bottom/submissive/other, it's wrong.
2). Again, Spanking=hitting. There's no other way around it. YOU doing it with your lover (provided it was consensual/have a safeword/have their permission) is one thing. Hitting a child that has no say-so in the matter IS abuse and is hitting.

1) No, but I start out so light it doesn't really's more like a tap.

2) I've never had the need for a safe word just because I'm not into the really kinky stuff.

Yes, it does because you are hitting (light or not) the person. By NOT asking them BEFORE you do it, that deems it non-consensual in the adult case, which means, your lover could have technically filed assault charges against you if they really wanted to. You don't have to be into that kinky stuff to have respect for a person and ASK if they ENJOY being hit before you do it.

Why doesn't this apply equally to EVERY aspect of sexytime?

udhq: Phil Moskowitz: udhq: All spanking did to me was give me a seething hatred against idiots who need to use violence and fear to control their children, and a resolve to make sure that decision hurts my parents more than it ever did me.

Every couple of years when they try to reestablish contact with me and my family, I send them the same form letter that as a consequence of their actions, they will go to their graves without ever having met their grandchildren.

I admire and respect that level of spite. I have a parent I'm trolling the obits for myself.

It's absolutely not spite, not really even anger. They're pretty much non people to me at this point.

Well, that and I'm EXTREMELY protective of my kids. I almost feel sorry for the boys who are going to try and take my daughters out on dates later on...

Are you planning on controlling those boys through violence and fear?

PsiChick: Why do you want to hit your kids?

I don't have any kids, so I can't answer that particular question. However, if you want to know why I want to hit your kids, it's because I've met them.

mafiageek1980: The_Sponge: PsiChick: Better question: Why do you  want to hit your kids?

Spanking is not hitting.

I HOPE you are joking with that statement.

Spanking=hitting your kid as a form of discipline.


And if spanking equals "hitting", then I'm guilty of hitting various women during sexy time.

Can't argue with that. It takes a real sonuvabiatch to put a kid in overalls...

Seriously, all you "anti-spanking" people must not have kids. Let the childless dictate parenting, no wonder this current generation of kids are fat, bullied, Nintendo-playing chumps.

I speak from experience on this, as my step-son Kody used to be one of 'em. Little shiat had all the latest games and would still smart mouth his mom and I. That came to a stop after I showed him the belt a few times and cut the wire on his game. Now all he's says is "yes sir" or "no sir" and he spends about half the day out in the woods hunting and skinning squirrels.

The only thing we had to discipline him for recently was taking his buck knife to school, but it was an honest mistake on his part and he owned up to it.

Bottom line is my daddy spanked me and I turned out fine, and now I spank my son and it's done a world of good for that boy.

Researchers found that maternal spanking at age 5 was significantly associated with greater aggression and rule-breaking as well as lower scores on vocabulary tests at age 9.
Fathers' spanking at age 5 was associated with lower vocabulary scores at age 9, according to the research.

Meh. How many words do most people need to know anyway? It's not like they're going to need them to express ideas. Just basic animal wants and needs. All they really require is a few distinguishable grunts.
What did it do to math scores?

mafiageek1980: ikanreed: Best Princess Celestia: And if you dont discipline them, you get the young generations of today.

Yes, it's a good idea to project your failings onto an entire generation of people, and think that violence directed at children magically transforms into discipline, in direct contradiction to the quite serious evidence presented in the article.

Discipline is having a set bedtime.  Spankings are immature overreaction by parents who should-not-be.


That being said, the article is stupid. Spanking kids does not lead them to be violent adults. That notion is just plain stupid.

/won't ever spank my future kids
//Getting spanked did nothing for me as a kid but make me FEAR my parents
///nor did washing my mouth out with soap. I still have a filthy farking mouth as an adult ;)

And the fear didn't keep you in line? Though the whole cursing thing is just a natural part of adulthood but other things that are classified as 'just being a dick'.

That just means that you didn't get out all of your aggression the first time.

mediablitz: I've said it many times: If you have to spank a 3-5 year old, you are the loser. You have to actually put in WORK to raise good kids. Lazy parents spank because they are lazy.

Nothing screams lazy like smacking someone.  I mean when I'm lounging around the house instead of cleaning I get up and spank my wife because that's what you do when your lazy.

Jesus not this shiat again really?  Can we have a tipping thread next?
