I've already posted this question in the gentle parenting section. But I honestly feel very passionate that hitting kids in anyway is wrong and I want to just confirm there are still parents out there that don't spank or hit. Also you may not notice but I am autistic and I'm slightly crazy in a nice way so I'm like a kid myself. I still play with toys and I love cartoons
And I live with my Mom
Also I am only asking because I wish this world was less cruel. Btw I LOVE THIS WEBSITE
I hate child abuse of any kind. I adore kids and I could never even imagine hitting them. I wouldn't spank a child for anything. There are more peaceful ways to deal with kids that don't involve violence. How can we teach them not to hit if we hit them ourselves? The closest I have ever got to hitting a child is doing play sword fighting with them :P you know? Light sabers or wooden sticks or pirate swords but seriously I don't believe in any type of violence against children.
When I was 10 Years old I was in Walmart on holidays in Orlando Florida (visiting Disney World) and I saw a mother continue to smack her about 11 year old daughter on her head and bum non stop and the daughter was crying shouting "that hurts" and the mother didn't care at all. It breaks my heart.
I honestly didn't care then as I was only 10 years old but now I look back and think how cruel that was. I have read some children get spanked With belts, paddles, hair brushes, slippers, switches and canes until there bottom is bright red I have read that some children get spanked with switches until there bottom is actually bleeding :C And it breaks my heart.
Can someone please explain to me how some parents can be so cruel? Why would any parent want there child's bum to bleed just because they was naughty? That's terrible Horrible and most definitely child abuse.
Anti Spanking parents need to stand up for children and put a full stop to the cruelty that happens to kids in this world. If it's not okay to hit an adult then why a helpless child that cannot defend themselves. I HATE CHILD ABUSE :C and I know kids are naughty sometime I mean all kids behave bad sometimes but every child is special and deserves to be loved and treated with care. Discipline children gently and not with violence.
Do you think a little spank on the bum with your hand is okay though? I don't anymore but at least that is less cruel right? But I still think it's wrong to ever hit a child even a little tap on the bum is wrong in my opinion I WOULD NEVER NEVER NEVER SPANK ANY CHILD NO MATTER WHAT I'm just feeling really depressed lately after reading some horrific child abuse stories involving spanking :C I'm autistic as well :P And I'm mostly happy I'm Sorry.
