    twerking is the dance you see a lot of women with large rear ends doing. Basically just shaking their asses. I can understand why a father wouldn`t want his daughters doing it but he did go over the top. As for jail time...I doubt he`ll ever see the inside of a cell.

    Corporal punishment is *not* okay. At all. Ever. We`re about the only 1st world country that even allows it. In the other countries, the threat of its use and using it is seen as exactly what it is: assault and battery.

    Sorry... I work with DYS teenagers... If parents tanned backsides for doing stupidity like this more often, we`d have less idiot kids doing idiot things. But no... We have the bleeding heart wuss-bags screaming Abuse or Assault, and perfectly well meaning parents are going to court for disciplining their children, leaving their kids in the custody of the state. Raise a child with a weak hand and they will grow up into weak adults, raising their children to be weak adults. And over time, there is no longer any real discipline. People are never taught to fear the consequences of their actions. I got my ass beat when I did something stupid as a kid... Did I cry abuse? No. I sucked it up and learned to not do stupid things that were gonna end up getting me into trouble.

    SPrinkZ, I was hit plenty. Fortunately, never like this, nor like that TX judge did with his daughter, but, plenty bad enough.

    However, when one considers all research, the fact all other 1st world countries condemn it, the fact that we`re the ONLY 1st world country not to sign on to a UN resolution banning it says that I`m not the only one who find the practice barbaric. Would let a stranger hit your child if she did something bad? What about your dog? Would hit your neighbor`s child for punishment? All of that ought to indicate something to you. All hitting does is teach kids how not to get caught.

    UN Resolution.

    Over a dozen American medical associations against it.

    If these girls were shaking their behind in some other video, there would have been comment about their upbringing. Like `her father must be proud`
    We have a father who is taking interest in the children but needs education in how to discipline them. This is not OK.

    Hope they don`t take this opportunity to put him in jail.

    Smagboy, only parents have the right to spank their kids, not neighbors, friends or anyone else. Sure, it can be taken to abuse levels but that really is not the norm. Personally, nothing got my attention and made me think twice the next time than a non-mark making belt to the ass. Then it was "wait till your dad gets home", and it was up to my mom to actually tell him or not. And guess what, it works. My friends once wanted to egg a old mans house, the went to the store to get eggs and I went home because I knew what it meant. And countless other examples... Disciplining doesn`t automatically equal abuse, and it absolutely works.

    The comments on the video itself are also disgusting... Even if you do think those girls need to be taught something, beatings are well known to not just not work, but also be counter productive. Beaten kids were more likely to be criminals than there peers and were far more likely to beat their own kids.

    paperduck, do you actually know *why* in our laws (US) parents have a right to beat their kids? Look it up, it`s an EXCEPTION to the assault and battery laws. Right there beside self-defense. It`s ridiculous. Did you read any of the links I provided about how ALL major medical and psychological bodies and every other 1st World Country condemn corporal punishment as not working and being detrimental? Did you even thinking about the idea that it`s okay to hit your own kids but not someone else`s? Doesn`t that mean it`s a kind of drated up thing in the first place?

    Parents have a RIGHT to hit their kids? What a sick drating thing that that line of thought is. I mean, seriously, think about what that`s saying there. What do you think it`s teaching kids by battering them? Not to get caught. That`s it. Oh well.

    Hey, AJ, I`m simply posting peer-reviewed articles and links to professional and social groups that condemn corporal punishment for reasons related to study after study after study. It`s not like it`s just people being wimpy. And I`m also not calling for laws against it. I`m simply saying that an educated approach should guide someone to rethink their stance on corporal punishment.

    Why is it okay to hit a child, but we can`t hit prisoners? Why can`t we hit people in the military to teach discipline? Why can`t we hit another adult when we want to teach them right from wrong, or even our own pets, yet we consider it okay to hit children? It`s a sad state of affairs when you`re supporting the striking of children and vilifying someone who is giving reasoned, logical, proof-supported arguments against it. But I didn`t expect less from anyone, and that`s cool. As always, I can take it.

    You may think it`s effective in formative years, AJ, but, as I said, no other 1st world country condones it, all professional medical societies, even in this country, who`ve weighed in on it say it`s not effective and condemn it for having lasting negative effects, and, frankly, at this point, to support it is to be willfully ignorant of the adverse effects. Again, I`m not trying to criminalize a swat on the ass for misbehaving, but, when it`s allowed, it leads to crap like this video, or that judge in TX. Too, it prevents real, effective, productive alternatives. So, I`m trying to enlighten and eliminate ignorance on the subject.

    Here`s a meta study citing 88 others, published and endorsed by the APA: here. Overwhelming found against the use of corporal punishment. Study after study after study. Saying something is effective does

    Corporal punishment worked for thousands of years. I`m not saying beat children. What happened in this video is actually criminal.

    The reason why it isn`t used on prisoners or military, is because actual corporal punishment used the right way is only effective in the formative years. Spanking a grown man with all his faculties is just flirting lol.

    "Don`t do that. It`s bad. There is no consequence" is not effective.

    Discipline?
    There`s a big difference between discipline and beating your kid up. He was out of control walloping on them.

    On the other side of the isle is the UN Resolution banning spanking your kid. Stupid can go both ways.

    --------

    **This**

    A perfect example of how screwed up some people are. I can only assume it`s the beatings they received as a child that drove them to hate others and become the empty, heartless Republicans that they are today.

    Luckily, we are moving away from this dark ages type discipline and into MUCH more effective styles that teach the children to self control and not respond out of fear. My Daughter is one of the most well behaved kids I know. She`s good because she wants to be good. Not because she is afraid to be good. She feels good about herself when she makes the right choices.

    To be honest, it really explains a lot about the Right Wing extremists on here when they all support beating children.

    Gerry, why say the UN Resolution is stupid? I`d agree with you if there wasn`t an entire cruise ship load of evidence to back up such a decree. I mean, it`s not like people came to the decision just on a whim. Note that only extremely religious nations (and also those with the highest incarceration rates) still back corporal punishment of children as a right. If you can`t hit your partner as a means of punishment, if you can`t hit your friend, why is it okay to hit your kid? To say that they take it better, or actually learn from it, and adults don`t, is silly, and has no evidence, at all, to back it. If that`s true, why can`t we hit adults with the mental capacity of children? The fact that even allowing is because of an exception to Assault and Battery laws ought to say all that needs to be said on the subject. We don`t let kids hit each other, yet we think it`s okay for *us* to hit them?

    I should also add that I disagree with the "Let my kid do whatever they want" style of parenting. This results in kids that feel the world owes them a living. Little brat kids that are mouthy and misbehave.

    A properly raised child will be polite, respectful and well behaved but at the same time, will also be curious and feel happy and safe. No child should live in fear of their parents.

    Let me ask you this. When the only deterrent to bad actions is a spanking, what happens when the child is older and can no longer be spanked? Without the fear of spanking, the child can run amok. This is one of the MANY reasons why teaching a child to make the right choices, on their own, is the best way to go. Long after spankings are not a possibility, the child will still want to behave. They will will want to feel proud of themselves for making the right choices.

    And McGovern1981 solidifies my hypothesis. I wonder how many extreme Right Wing folks were spanked as children?

    The lack of a safe environment and clear hatred from the parent must result in the child hating and wanting to punish others. It all makes so much sense now.

    I love watching videos where parents traumatize there kids. I think my favorite has to be the one where the mother sold her kids Bayblades on Ebay, or the one where the the father shoots his daughters laptop, or "Consequences will never be the same." guy. Awesome!

    Old Olllie, Auburnjunky and McGovern all feel that, even though society says that hitting others is a crime, hitting a small, helpless child is just fine.

    All we need is 5Cats to chime in to tell us that parents are wussies and it`s okay to hit little kids and my theory will be proven correct!

    Seeing how every view you`ve ever posted on here is of the "Right Wing" variety (crossing into the "tea Party" extreme) I`m shocked that you feel you belong somewhere else on the scale.

    @ SmagBoy1 - I say the UN Resolution is stupid because there is nothing wrong with the judicious application of hand on bottom with children. Because some people beat their child up mercilessly does not invalidate swift, appropriate punishment.

    Extremism is usually stupid. Beat them for everything or never hit the kid. Extremist ideas usually have an idiot author.

    My sentiments exactly Gerry.

    "there is nothing wrong with the judicious application of hand on bottom with children. Because some people beat their child up mercilessly does not invalidate swift, appropriate punishment."

    Also, Patch, no one is advocating anyone hit a child. I think you have a hard time grasping that hitting, and corporal punishment are very very far apart.

    Hitting is beating. Spanking is rearing.

    Okay, Gerry, I understand. I guess what I was trying to get at is that a great deal of professionals, studies, data, etc., indicate that, in fact, application of hand on bottom (as punishment for a child) is actually *not* appropriate punishment due to the psychological harm it does. If it was one study, or two, or one doctor, or two, or even ten, I`d be right there with you. But, just because we don`t hear about it much here in the States, there`s an avalanche of evidence and data indicating that corporal punishment has no positive effects.

    That said, I understand what you`re saying, and your POV. I was raised here, in this culture, and it`s taken a lot of reading and thinking to get me to where I am on the subject. But, there`s enough data out there now, to me, to make it an issue that no longer has two reasonable sides.

    AJ, what happened to me is irrelevant. We used to not pasteurize milk. We used to not understand how disease works. We used to crap near where we ate. Just because something has been done a certain way for a long time doesn`t mean it`s right.

    I have a lot of faith in science. I also have a healthy bit of skepticism in my personality. So, I want to see a LOT of information before I form an opinion, and I`m always willing to learn more. If you consider the links I`ve posted, though, there`s a TON of info on this topic. We`re the ONLY First World country who hasn`t condemned corporal punishment. We`re in league with the Middle East and third world countries on this. The more you read about the psychological effect, the more you read about the alternatives, there`s really no other position to have, IMHO.

    Fair enough, McGovern. I stand corrected.

    auburnjunky:
    "Hitting is beating. Spanking is rearing."
    -------------

    I couldn`t disagree more. While I do agree that the "Time out" parent, that lets their child run rampant, is just as much a form of abuse as hitting them, how can you suggest that inflicting pain and fear in your child, by smacking their butt, is anything less than cruel?

    A child has no one in this World but their parents, hitting the child inflicts pain and causes them to fear the only people they truly trust. It creates a feeling of being alone.

    Luckily, I`m not alone in this. Medical studies have been saying it for years and it has been made illegal in most countries.

    I never saw it as fear in my parents when I would fear consequences. It was fear in the action, because I was too young to fathom that doing this will effect this, etc. Corporal punishment helped me develop that part of my personality.

    Also, I loved and respected my mother more after it happened. There was no fear. She never came AT me with a belt or paddle. I was always given chance to offer myself for punishment. No fear.

    It only happened like 3 or 4 times in my entire life. I have 4 kids. I have spanked my 15 year old a grand total of 4 times. My 6 year old once. My 12 year old twice, and my 10 year old once. After each time, they turned around and hugged me without coaxing and told me they love me, as I did my mother.

    Like I said, there is a HUGE difference between spanking and beating. I would venture to guess that your experts used beating as their basis for their studies, and not what happens to me or my kids during punishment.

    Everything has a appropriate application and an extreme. If you let a child have a scoop of ice cream after a meal once a week, OK. If you let them eat ice cream every day, after every meal, and as much as they want, you end up with a fat child. The same goes for Corporal Punishment. My mother spanked me. But I knew Why I was being punished and she didn`t lose her temper when she did it. There were an appropriate, controlled number of smacks with the switch or belt. It was enough to Hurt, and wound my feelings, but never enough to bruise or damage. Of course, that was in the 70`s-80`s before it was illegal. This man lost control, and ABUSED (not punished) his daughters. He should go to jail and should not be allowed to see his children again until they are over 21

    But why resort to hitting at all when other forms of punishment work so much better and don`t involve physicalities.

    Teach a child to do good because it makes them feel good to be good. Use positive reenforcement and when you issue a punishment, FOLLOW THROUGH WITH IT (THE most important thing and one of the main reasons that most parents fail with a "Spanking free" form of parenting). When a child is misbehaving, don`t be afraid to tell them no. You still have to discipline your child, hitting is not required. The medical community agrees that it does not work and, in worst case scenarios, can actually cause more problems then it solves.

    So...why do it at all?

    Punishment should never be performed while angry. The transgression doesn`t matter.

    I was whipped as a child. I never whipped my son. He`s a better person than I am. I`m don`t mean to suggest causation, but it`s something to think consider.

    Experts suggest there are better alternatives than whipping a disobedient child with an electric cord.

    What`s wrong with some of you people? Trolls?

    @ SmagBoy1 - I get what you`re saying, but those studies are a load of crap. Child rearing isn`t a science because each kid responds differently. The parent has to pay attention and use a discipline that works.

    Example, my brother was a rebellious idiot. No amount of licks with the strap would stop him from doing whatever stupid thing he wanted to do. I on the other hand needed just one swipe and I learned. My parents paid attention, they used other punishments for him. Labor was more effective with him, he hated chores.

    But spankings are a viable option in tool-box of parenting.

    Now I understand all the single black mothers out there. This is what happens when you let a black man stick around to raise the kids.

    Oh, wait a minute. A father beats his kids for acting like sluts. I award 99 problems but a ho ass daughter ain`t one to this guy.

    WTF? I never said it was okay to beat on kids. Stupid liberal Canucks, on the other hand, are another story.

    No matter what those kids did, no one deserves to be beaten to that extent. How can you keep going when your child is screaming like that? If he treated them better to begin with maybe they wouldn`t have stepped so far out of line. I`m glad my kids will never see me lose control like this.

    I fear for the children to be raised by this generation. They will be a bunch of egotistical narcisistic, spoilt, lazy, sexually out of control walking social problems. I got plenty of licks like this from my parents growing up. Did me good. Straight A`s, sports team, college education with awards, and love my parents to the max. Left to my own devices I would be a homeless crackhead by now at best. The screaming is for effect people, it hurts, but no where close to that level of screaming. If those chicks where getting a tattoo, which hurts a lot more, I bet they wouldn`t be screaming none. Western world needs a little more spanking and a little less of adults following the lead of children and allowing them total free reign.

    Using a cord to beat a kid is certainly child abuse. He shoulda stuck with the trusty old belt.

    Wrong @sshole. They may not have been behaving correctly, but you don`t beat children like that. I would love to get 5 minutes alone in a room with this d!ckhead, and get immunity from prosecution.
