Have any of you seen anybody hitting a child at the super market or any other public place and, if so, would you go up to the adult and say anything to the adult ? What would you say?
Would you report the person doing the hitting to the child to the police?
i have always wanted to go to the adult beating on the child and say something in the child's defense - as - Hitting a child only tells them that violence is the only way to teach a child right from wrong or the only way to reprimand them -
also, that the bigger guy always wins -
because, the child will only carry this treatment over to his/her family -
i broke the chain of hitting that went on in my family -
when we married, i simply told my husband that there would be no capital punishment in our home - there are better ways to reprimand a child -
now, i'm not talking about a whap on the bum of a tot who is about to run out on the street or plug his toy into an electric socket - i'm talking about a beating - one that leaves welts and draws blood -
a smack on the bum is okay with me - but, we didn't even do that -
i see no wrong in anybody else doing that, though -
wow, i probably have this whole thing so confused that ya'll can't even figure out the question now -
