Despite all the warnings and criticism, four out of five parents still spank their kids. Many experts believe the negative consequences outweigh any behavior benefits. Who's right?
It I did that at 14 with my mom's BMW. Gotta love moms, lol. You know I am sick and fucking tired of this man.
A British Columbia mother and father who used a plastic hockey stick and a skipping rope to spank their year-old daughter have been found guilty of assault with a weapon. A provincial court heard the couple from Salmon Arm wanted to punish their daughter for sending nude photos to a young man over the Internet and instead of being grounded, the teen chose the spanking. When the girl went to school with lacerations and bruises, her friends told administrators, who called RCMP.
Liza Campero filmed her brother's antics in a series of now viral tweets as her furious mother intercepted the boy and spanked him with a belt near oncoming traffic. Campero told KTRK that her brother disconnected the WiFi from the house last Friday and then shut off the security cameras so his mom couldn't see what he was doing. Once it was done, Campero said he grabbed the keys drove off to see his best friend. But mom was tipped off about the joyride by the mother of her son's friend.
Taylor Santos initially received a two-day in-school suspension for allegedly letting a classmate copy her homework, but then opted for an optional spanking to void the second day. The girl's mom, Anna Jorgensen, said Shaw did so with such a violent, upward motion that it left a numbing, burn-like mark. I'm not saying he went in to intentionally hurt my daughter, but intentional or not, it did happen.
I don't know There's a teenage girl on Dr. Phil today that I would love to kick the crap out of.
The jury is still out on whether spanking is a solid form of discipline, or if it should be classified as child abuse. It is a hot topic that has divided parents for centuries. Some see it as a good form of discipline, that is left as a last resort, while others see it as counter-productive and harmful. That teaching your children it is OK to be violent is not the way to correct their negative behaviour.
When year-old Taylor Santos, a sophomore at Springtown High School in Texas was called in to be disciplined for allegedly letting another student copy her work, she was punished by having a two-day suspension. The teen called her mother, who also approved the request. The story gets weirder, however: Taylor's mother, Anna Jorgensen, is now furious because a male vice principal spanked her daughter, although there was a female present during the punishment school policy says that females have to spank females, and the same goes for males.
