Why am I not allowed to think spanking is abuse?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Maybe abuse is not the word but I think it should be illegal to hit anyone no matter what age. No one will convince me its ever okay to hit a child. As long as its legal I can tolerate people doing it but why is it so bad for me to think that way?

 People tend to get defensive when they know they're wrong.

Of course it's wrong to physically hurt a child. Anyone who disagrees is an uneducated moron.

I don't care if people have different opinions than me, just don't act like my opinion is invalid. Give respect to get it

I live in New Zealand and it IS illegal here.. I see lots of spanking comments on here andi'm a bit surprised at how frequent it happens? If you were to smack your child here in public someone who sees you do it has the right to call the police.

It is not bad yet we can just agree to disagree. Heck I spank as a last resort and I don't agree with a lot of parents on their reason for the spanking.
I only spank if my child is doing somthing that can put her in danger, it is to get her attention, not hurt her or humiliate her. I feel you should only ever use an open hand on the bottom and it should never be done out of anger. Yet there are some parents that spank that don't agree with me. Everyone raises their children differently.

You can think whatever you like. Doesn't mean everyone has to agree with you :)

Quoting Anonymous:

"Countries where spanking is legal though (such as Finland and Denmark) have very low crime rates compared to the US"

And it's funny how every person attributes that to what they want. Atheists say it's because they're highly secular countries. Anti-spanker a say it's because spanking is illegal, socialists say it's because of socialism.
Bottom line is that unless you can prove a direct link between spanking and a tendency to violence you have nothing by this association.
Those countries also have very high suicide rates, so should I start blaming Atheism or lack of corporal punishments for that? It's ridiculous to make associations that may not even exist.

All kids that I know who do not get spanking is stinking rude! You see moms out in public being embarrased by their kids, back talking and not acting right.  I spank my kids, and they are well mannered.  I bet your kid is rude, and your a mom that has to be running around in public trying to control your kid/s.

I couldn't care less what you think. You are entitled to your opinion. I'm sure you do something I think is wrong.
