Child Discipline?

Unread postby Jonathan » Tue Jun 25, 2002 7:31 pm

It has become next to impossible to discipline your child in the United States now, if you do you can be called abusive. I think discipline is important when a child is growing up, never to the extent of a closed fist. But, a paddle or a belt to the butt when he/she is out of line can help a child for their future. In the sense that they understand that there are times when they should not be "acting out".

I think people blow things out of proportion, discipline is what kids need to understand right and wrong, you can argue with a kid all you want but they will be damned to see your point of view. Moderated discipline is healthy, however abusive parents need to get their butt to a counselor and stop their nonsense before they screw up their child's life.

I think a child needs to fully understand the difference between proper discipline, and abuse. If he or she can seperate the two as the opposites they are, than the child should be able to fully understand why is getting what he is geting and for what reasons. I don't know if I agree with spanking a child. Not because I think it is wrong, but because of the affectiveness of it.

I do not believe in physically or emotionally disciplining a child.

I would do my best to be his/her best friend, and then win their trust, and hopefully manipulate their moral system. :)

It's not bad, kinda like an anime version of Magic the Gathering.


I would hate to force my own way of thinking on my child, especially when I am not happy with all the choices I make myself. You have to be able to hurt a childs feelings some, or nothing will get done. Even taking away their favorite toy would make them cry in pain~! =D

Define "Dicipline". If what you mean is spanking, smacking, and slapping, then it should be stopped.

If it's a healthy dicipline by restraining your kid to do this and that, but not with physical abuse, I'd go for it. That's how I was trained when I was a kid

There is a little bit of a crowbar between discipline and abuse. ^^

Discipline is not only good, most of the time it is necessary. The problem with disciplining children these days, is when parents take it too far, or do it for the wrong reasons. I'll give a quick example: a child breaks something, and normally a parent would tell the child to be more careful, and watch what they're doing. However on this occasion, the parent had a bad day and decides to beat the kid to "teach him a lesson". I think this is wrong, and counter-productive to positively raising children. Discipline should be fair, uniform, and never cross the line to becoming abuse.
