Why are so many things considered abuse now a days? When I was a kid I got spankings, I had my teeth brushed with soap, And I went to bed hungery if I didn't want what was for dinner. I thnk I had wonderful parents!! They were loving, I always had every thing I needed and most of what I wanted, And they tought me how to be a decent human being. So why is it that if I were a child now I would probably be taken from them and put into foster care because of how they disciplined?? Would that have made me a better person than I am today? I know and believe there are many different kinds of abuse and truely abused kids need to be taken from their parents, but I know many children and adults who are or were "abused" by definition who are and were healthy and happy people. What do you think?

Over the years these tactics you mentioned have been proven by studies to do more harm than good, and it was totally accepted back then, times change and so should we. [older]
Most of those studeis were done by people who have never had kids and have no clue how to raise them. If those tactics were so bad and the new ones are so good, then why are there far more problems with kids today?
