New York City 310 199x300 POSITIVE PARENTING:  SPANKING IS GOOD !!Have you ever had the situation where you witnessed a kid out of control and the parent was at a loss? They didn’t know what to do. I’ve seen this play out many times in my lifetime and each time I was so close to intervening, but I couldn’t.  This did not concern me.  It wasn’t any of my business.

There were many times in my kids lives where this same situation came up.  The only difference was I knew exactly what to do.  I believe my role as a parent includes training my children so that they may become useful members of society.  They’re behavior will determine how useful they will be.

Society does not tolerate bad behavior.  The jails are filled with many who exhibit this.  This is not to say that are children will become criminals if they don’t behave but, if we don’t start when they are young, to train them, then we are opening the door to many other problems.

Spanking is one way adjust this.  Some say that spanking is cruel.  They also say that it can destroy a child.

We must be able to to tell the difference between spanking and child abuse.  The two are not the same!! No one and I mean no one should abuse a child.  Physically or mentally.  Spanking is not abuse.  Spanking is a way to get and keep control over our children.

Sometimes parents, in their quest to give their kids freedom,  they turn them into animals.  They become these little monsters who don’t behave, are rude and are completely out of control.  I feel that if these behaviors are not nipped in the bud when they are young , these little monsters become big monsters.  I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve seen a teenager be disrespectful to his/her parents.  It saddens me and angers me at the same time.  I feel that if these parents had disciplined these kids when they were young, these present problems may not exist.  A simple spanking lets them know whose in control and who they need to show respect to.

In my own experience, a few taps on the backside is all that was needed.  That small act established who was in control.  It let it be known who was the parent and who was the kid. Very rarely did I have to do this more than once.  I remember  myself as a child, my dad or mom would give me a spanking, and if  a later time I misbehaved they would give me that look.  (Don’t act stupid. You know what I’m talking about. That look). That look let me know that if I didn’t turn myself around they would go to the next level. Most of the time it worked.

What was more important, they were showing me how to deal with my own kids. I do not have to beat my kids into submission. (Child Abuse Is Not Cool!!). A simple thing like spanking is a great tool to use in child rearing.

I’d sure like to know what you think about this post and all my other posts.

I love being a dad!!
