There must be white parents on this site because black parents deal with punishment totally different,timeouts and taking stuff away is not an option especially when I was a kid and I turned out fine so if anybody needs help it's y'all that think that corporal punishment is wrong so do't respond to me if you don't agree feel me?

  •, judgmental much? I am white and my mom is white. She beat me and whooped me from an early age. So, that blows your little theory out of the water. Not to mention..I know plenty black families that do time-out and taking away toys. Now what?

  • i'm black and i do time out. it's not a race thing.... it's a choice of how you want to dicipline your kid.

  • White people spank sometimes too. And not all black people do spank. I think you're confused

  • Sounds like you're a little pissy that you were called out for beating your 5 year old with a belt. Really, you didn't see that coming? It's not a color thing, it's a parent thing. And saying you turned out fine, yet are beating your kid with a belt. Contradicted yourself there. If you don't want different answers or comments, then you should really keep your thoughts to yourself.

  • That was illogical. I spank and time-out... I'm white. My parents always spanked. From what I know from at least 3 black friends that I have, they don't spank

  • Violence, corporal punishment, against children is wrong no matter what culture you are from. People don't get to make the excuse that I hit my kid because I'm black and I was smacked around and I turned out fine. You didn't turn out fine, you are hitting a helpless child.

  • Gross generalization. Discipline methods should depend on the child you're dealing with, not the skin tone.

  • Yeah, I gotta agree with Kiwismommy. It doesn't matter what race you are; hitting your kid with a belt is NOT acceptable. By the way, I'm 100% white girl, and I got spanked (my parents are white, as are their parents.... get what I'm saying?).

  • Hahaha, this is because you used a belt to "spank". LOL Belt beating is not the same as spanking to discipline. You are beating. I spank, meaning using my hand.
