"Before it was taken down on Tuesday, April 8, 2014, the video had been shared over 8,600 times."

At least they didn't say how many "hits" it had.

Cold_Sassy: Fuggin Bizzy: Warlordtrooper: just to play devils advocate here, isn't using a belt a rather normal form of punishment, at least it was when my mom was a kid.

...my mom used to discipline us with multiple blows from whatever weapon came to hand. I've always felt that was wrong, and resolved to do better for my kids.

My Mom did this exact thing too, paddle ball paddles, spatulas, belts, switches, you name it... and guess what?  We all lived and grew up to be successful adults.


Sorry to bring you the bad news, but no, you didn't. Successful adults don't comment on Fark.

Fuggin Bizzy: It's going to vary depending on who you ask, but I think it's pretty widely accepted that hitting a kid with something is too much. The rule I use with my kids is - at most, one smack on the ass with an open hand. That's it. Not multiple blows, no back/leg/head shots, and certainly no weapons. Sticks, belts, hairbrushes, wooden spoons...my mom used to discipline us with multiple blows from whatever weapon came to hand. I've always felt that was wrong, and resolved to do better for my kids


My father had an old leather belt hanging on the back of the basement door with "psychology" carved into it.  If we acted up, our last warning was always "I'm going to use psychology on you if you don't knock it off".

He seldom had to even bring it out.  And he could make a snapping sound with it that was utterly terrifying.

Gilligann: How the hell can someone do this?

Fortunately, as is often the case, their own stupidity was their downfall.

This morning I was changing my son out of his pajamas. He raises his arms and I pulled his shirt off. The neckline of the shirt pulled on his ears when I was taking it off and it hurt him. He said "you hurt me", and I felt farking awful about it. He's fine, but just the thought that something I did hurt him is not something I feel good about.

HotWingConspiracy: She then forces the child to say, repeatedly, that "it's not cool to be a gangster."

Obviously beating your kid and posting the act for the world to see is inadvisable on many levels, but I can endorse the sentiment here.


The best way to teach your kid that it's not cool to be a gangsta is to act like a violent thug and beat the shiat out of him.

ongbok: HotWingConspiracy: lostcat: And when the kid grows up to be a gangsta, everyone is going to complain that the parents didn't care and let the kid do whatever he wanted growing up.

Yeah they tried. I'm not confident it's the best practice, but nobody can say they don't care or were uninvolved.

I know plenty of people that when they started showing signs of leaning towards an interest in gangsterism and criminality that a few hard beatings and public humiliation by their parents steered them away from those interest. Other people who's parents thought that beating wasn't the answer, and thought that talking and groundings were the way to go, ended up in the gang life or ended up doing something stupid trying to play gangster that got them into a mess. When it comes to gangs and criminal stuff, when a kid starts showing an active interest in it, a very forceful and hard response is what is needed to discourage them from it before somebody else does.


Who needs a scientific study when you've got solid empirical evidence like this? Stupid libs. It's like it says in the Bible: spare the cat o' nine tails, spoil the child.

Ero hoc post propter hoc?

it's a funny thing, perhaps because I am a genuine sadist, I truly cannot ever imagine striking my child, much less using an implement to increase the pain and severity of those beatings  (and Yes I am a minor expert in using  those very same implements on consenting adults) It actually makes me physically sick to contemplate (even though it was a regular feature of my upbringing , and I don;t consider my parent to have been abusive, just misguided)

And it used to be normal for some cultures to rip the heart out of a random person every day to make sure the sun rises in the morning.


That's a bunch of BS. It was to make sure the sun  set in the  evening.

It was mentioned in the article that he was posting lies about himself on facebook, and that they forced him to say "it ain't cool to be a gangsta" into the camera. Now, if little deShawn, or Malik, or Toby, or whatever stupid name they gave this future criminal, beating the kid 50 times with the belt to keep him away from gang life doesn't seem too excessive to me. Especially if you consider the beating he'd take if he got initiated.

Or, people will point to all the studies that show using violence on children produces violent results. You can "care" without being a violent asshole. Not sure why you think it is one or the other. Too many beating as a kid?
