Unpopular Opinion Puffin Meme | WHILE I AGREE, THERE NEEDS TO BE DISCIPLINE (EVEN SPANKING) I ALSO THINK KIDS THESE DAYS NEED MORE LOVE | image tagged in memes,unpopular opinion puffin | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Dropped off at daycare by 6 weeks, parents split, there are a lot of kids not getting much love or attention or discipline. Love + discipline = great person. Love - discipline = crazy brat. No love no discipline = hedon. Discipline without love = monster.

Agree. Things aren't like they used to be, though. We're well into our second and third generation of latchkey kids.

Long into the industrial age, there were many men self employed. While their wives helped with the business, to some extent, but kept her eye close on the workings of the household. Often Dad would take the boys with him to learn the trade. Also, multiple generations lived in the home. I grew up, Grandma had a job til she retired, then Mom went to work, but Grandma stayed with the kids still at home. She was a stern task master, and the only way out of doing chores was to get a job. Only the baby of the family waited until after he graduated to get a job. We never became quite the nuclear family of the later part of the 20th century. The original definition of the nuclear family was the parents and the kids. But, like a nuclear reactor, it was very unstable. Ask Swiggy about it if Imgflip ever asks him to come back.

BUT I DON'T WANT A TIMEOUT | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Agreed. I used spankings for my kid, and he is now 20 and a respectful adult. We have a close relationship, and he even thanks me for it. I did NOT beat him... it was discipline, and also taking time to explain why that behavior is unacceptable and what behavior is acceptable.

I have received many text messages and Facebook messages from old high school friends who I rarely speak to who saw him working or saw him out with his girlfriend, and they would tell me how very polite he was and how he was so well-mannered. All kids react differently to different types of discipline. You just have to find what works for your kid.

Thanks, you got my point completely :) If you love 10 times harder than you would ever smack them you are doing it right in my opinion. Plus there has to be a genuine reason for it, and it should be the last resort.

My youngest just turned 7 yesterday. I homeschool him, he is like me and very adhd, if he was in school they would demand I put him on medication. But since he is just like me and I understand him I know how to handle teaching him.

Was having problems with him overreacting and throwing a fit every time heard the word no. So I made a chart, sat him down with his 17 yr old sister who also disciplines him as well as me and laid out a system of rules we all have to follow. It helps to have the entire household follow the same game plan I have found.

Basically if he throws one fit he has to give me a hug and we walk over to to the chart and check box 1. Second fit is a timeout staring at the wall for 3 minutes and we check box 2. 3rd fit he loses video game privileges for the day. 4th is all electronics. And number 5 is the smack. He has never made it past box 3 since we started this. The first 3 days in fact he got no check marks at all. He knows that every day he has the same rules to follow and it has been amazing honestly. Not saying this would work for all kids, only sharing what has worked for me. I think I have the chart on this computer I will see if I can find and share it as well....

Thank you for sharing that, Jying! I would like to use that 5-step chart with my son, if you don’t mind. He is 7 also, is autistic and has ADHD. The word no is a big trigger word with him too. But with him being very visual and good with routines, I think your chart would help. Thanks for the insight! : )

Did you ever stop to think that the spanking part didn't help, but the other parts did? It doesn't take corporal punishment to raise a well adjusted, polite, responsible adult.

For my kid, I was doing the other parts alone first and they weren’t working. When I added the spanking, then his behavior changed. As I mentioned, all kids are different so I do agree that spanking is not necessarily needed for all kids. I was an example of that.

I was probably spanked a total of 10 times my whole childhood. All I normally needed was a stern look from my dad to change my behavior. My son outright admits that he didn’t listen or respond until the spanking was threatened or finally given. As he got older, I moved to taking away his PlayStation or LONG lecturing because those seemed to get his attention more. He actually said “Mom, can you just spank me and get it over with?” Lol

It really is about finding what works for your kid and then being consistent. It’s just hard sometimes to pinpoint what that motivation is for your kid.

I guess you're talking to me, I haven't had to use the "spanking" part since I started using this. I think you mistake a smack on the butt for beating my kid, I have never hurt more than his feelings by smacking his ass. Are you a parent? You sound more like a kid to me...
reply
1 up, 12m
Conversely, did YOU ever stop to think that the spanking part DOES help. I may not take corporal punishment with /all/ kids, but as SJWs are so fond of pointing out, everyone is unique, and not all kids are the same. Some kids DO need a spanking once in a while.

And it's even more true these days, because kids are getting smarter. They have too much power, and they know it. If you take away their X-Box or their phone, they know all they have to do is call a helpline and say "mommy and/or daddy touched me in a bad place".

If parents were allowed to apply judicious spankings when called for, they would be called for a lot less often.

It's the parents' job to teach their kids about consequences that are actively unpleasant, as opposed to minor inconveniences. Kids who aren't taught consequences are the kinds of kids that laughingly flip the bird at the judge during their trial.

Agreed. No days the kids feel they can do anything because there’s nothing to stop them. Our now 18-year-old Always used child protection against us if we were trying to Discipline him in any form. Let’s say he’s not living the best life and no matter what we want to do for him we are wrong.

Well he moved out of the house because there was no smoking no drinking no drugs rules for the house and he didn’t respect those. Go to work come back home and it was always a party. Since he moved out he’s had three apartments and kicked out of each. I think it’s gonna be one of those learn on your own life experience things. We are there for him but only so much we can do.

I was actually a victim of child abuse. When I was younger my dad used to hit me for the most trivial things, like spilling my glass of water, and younger, 4-year-old me thought this was normal and discipline. Then when I was 11, my dad hit my mom and nearly killed my cat, and we kicked him out. This wasn't the first time it had happened, they used to fight constantly. 3 years later, he hasn't come back, and I haven't seen him in almost 2 years. I hope the bastard dies a horrible, painful death.

I dislike the "spank the children" conversations because so many people don't seem to realize what some kids live through. I was diagnosed with PTSD when I was 6. Recently I was diagnosed with complex ptsd because the abuse never ended. "Spanking" was abuse in my home and it was an everyday experience. I doubt those that advocate for spanking ever had blood running down their legs from a switching or concussions from being punished for not sweeping in the right direction.

When you talk about spanking children you have to acknowledge the parents that beat their children and call it spanking. It happens more often than anyone wants to admit and yes a simple conversation about how kids need to be spanked into submission can cause an innocent child to be beaten.

I'm happy most people don't realize how much pain a child can go through because the adults around them think hitting a child is the same as discipline.

It’s not that hitting children for misbehaving is wrong, it’s that it’s iften done the wrong way. I got the paddle in school in the south way back in the day. The principal had no emotion and hit just once. Turned me around, still with no anger and asked if I wanted him to do it again. I never acted up again.

Now years later my son was getting reported as a trouble maker in one class. I asked him about and he said he was trying to get his teacher so mad at him that he would hit him and lose his job. I told my son if he makes a teacher that mad I was going to hit too and make the teacher git a raise. He stopped acting up.

There are other ways to discipline your kids that aren't physical. Take away something they want, but don't need for an extended period of time. Don't let them go out after school. A little smack I can get behind, but anything more than that is just unnecessary. A nonphysical but inconvenient (for the kid) punishment is probably the best way to go, honestly.

The smack I am meaning in this is not a beating or anything close to it. Like somebody else mentioned above they need to be loved as well. You should love them so much that if they step out of line and you smack their bottom, it's not a physical pain, it hurts their feelings that you are that upset with them. Because they know you love them and that the last thing you want to do is hurt them.

My six year old has an incredible tolerance for pain. I have seen him wipe out majorly playing and shake it off like it is nothing, without shedding a single tear. But if he steps out of line and I swat him on the tail not even hard enough to leave a red mark, he will cry, because he loves and respects me due to the way I am raising him and he knows it's a big deal for me to be that upset with him.

When I was a kid we feared the spanking. The neighborhood kids would all get together and talk about which parents gave the worst. We knew the rules and were scared to break them, but none of us ever mentioned the word abuse.... ever.

I was never hit by my parents for something I didn't deserve, I earned every smack and none of it ever came close to abuse in my mind. And I was on the receiving end of it.

Some friends of mine are going crazy trying to get their kid into this fancy preschool. It's crazy expensive and something that has been a trend now for a good 20 years or so. I personally don't see any benefit it has had on that generation.

I think we need to find a middle ground, kids that grow up without fancy schools with parents that neglect them get hardened and can accomplish amazing things on their own. But they don't grow up happy either, and don't usually get opportunities that brats with the fancy preschool get.

It's a complicated situation, all I know is, spoiling your kids and never disciplining them 9 times out of 10 makes one horrible 21 year old person. That is what I meant in the meme, yet I don't even begin to think I have all the answers....

I see your point, I don't think I was abused. Too the kids in my neighborhood it was almost like a competition, whose parent whooped ass the hardest lol. That was my experience, I can't speak for other kids out there being abused, it is a horrible thing that I don't agree with.

No seriously. Read a story recently where the step-dad was arrested cuz the kid called the cops. He was charged with a misdemeanor. Guess what the Mom was charged with? A felony. For willful neglect for the child's safety.

Yeah, things aren't going to get better.

As long as you're not drunk, you should be able to spank/slap/smack the stupid right off of anyone. Nothing is worse then spoiling generations of people. It's worse to allow children to grow up not understanding how harmful is their impudent behavior. And if the child has learned to embrace conflict from non violence discipline, would they learn how to disrupt their own selfish detrimental desires?

Discipline doesn’t have to be beating but in today’s day and age any kind of discipline is considered beating. In my opinion. Maybe things are different from where you are. We tried to get our son help when he was 14 and 16 for his anger and his drug addiction but we were told by the social workers that at that age they have to make that decision on their own we can’t force them in for help. So where does that where’s that leave you? You’re responsible for them but you can’t do anything for them because of their age.

You can disregard anything I say on this topic because I'm not a parent and that's fine. But I don't like physical punishment, even spanking. I was spanked growing up and I don't think it made me a better or more-well-behaved kid.

And you look back on what was considered normal "discipline" a generation ago, and it would clearly be considered abusive behavior today. Just because it was the normal thing to do doesn't mean it was the right thing to do.
reply
2 ups, 12m
I agree with you. There is HUGE difference. I've been through both. I was abused by my bio mom she'd just pull my hair out or through things at me.. with my Adoptive mom I was disciplined (luckily I was a good kid and didn't get spanked XD). Sometimes a kid must be corrected. But some people don't need to over do it. And some parents don't know how to control their anger issues or addictions.
