I don't believe in spanking

Parents seem to be on this power trip with their kids. It's the only explanation for the ferocity with which these parents cling to the concept of spanking.

Children are young, less experienced, less knowledgeable and can be defiant, impulsive and downright annoying and often even infuriating. 

When you have someone that you rule over, who knows less than you and who defies and annoys you, you feel completely justified in hitting them.

You say it's to teach them a lesson. You say it's because they can't learn any other way. 

You say it's your right as their "ruler." 

Let's grow beyond this and act benevolently to our subjects, eh?

 This house is not a Democracy, it is a Dictatorship, and I am it's Dictator and I will rule as I see fit!

My kids get hit, when they hit.  So the rule here is, "If you don't want to be hit, then don't hit", it works like a charm!

Well I don't believe in "time outs" or "reasoning". Growing up it was do what you're told without delay & when you're told to do it with a "yes ma'am/sir" or "no ma'am/sir". I operate the same way my nana did; I'm only going to tell you once, I will not repeat myself.

You raise yours, I'll raise mine.

So it'll be fine when your kids get bigger and start hitting you back when you hit them then?

 My kids have total control over whether or not they get hit, by keeping their hands to themselves.  If they want to go toe to toe with me, they will regret it and I won't feel the least bit bad about it.
