I feel most of societys problems stem from the fact that parents refuse to hit their children, either because the want to be thier "friends", or they dont want to be arrested for abuse.

 

Should parents hit their children?

 

:Edit: If regular punishment fails

 

:Double Edit: By "Hit" I mean spank etc... not a punch to the gut

actually virus, unless your very lucky, no way your not going to have to hit your kids, most of the time when you dont hit your kids they get out of hand. Nowadays "your grounded" and "no allowance" doesnt cut it... ( atleast here in NY ). These are just my theorys...

Not every child is the same. I think parents should first explain to the child what they did wrong and punish them with stuff like staying in their room or sitting in a corner (with no entertainment of course) and use hitting only as a last resort. I do not think it is fair to hit the child as the first line of defense. That way, the child doesn't learn what they can do to help fix the problem or what exactly they were doing wrong.

I never said hit them for everything they do.

And drunken rage doesnt count in this poll.

I wasn't saying that that IS what you believe. But threre are many (on this forum) who just say "Smack 'em until they understand".

 

Children do not respect a parent who hits them. They fear them. Some parents prefer this Machiavellian technique, though.

I have never been hit but I still listened to my mother. My sister on the otherhand doesnt listen. I feel she needs a good smack on the butt every once in a while. Trust me when I say...every other way has been tried. Sending her to her room. Taking away EVERYTHING!!! Not just some stuff...I'm talking. No good food(just 2000 calorie diet), no tv, no electronics, nothing except food, water, homework and basic clothing. It didn't work. My mom still won't pop her one on the butt.

 

It all depends on the child...I put yes because of my sister.
