Maybe correcting her in a lighter manner, instead of saying she was "dead wrong" may have been more useful. Kids these days like to think they are being treated with mild respect, and having them think they are makes them respect you even more so, keeping you in control.

40 only for some children. Some children would say "I don't give a fuck" and "I'm grown, I could do whatever I want" because some children couldn't careless if they are respected and won't show respect back. Not trying to pull a "bankrupt" here but my little brother who is six treats everyone like crap no matter how nice, mean or any other thing to him.

Actually, I think it's the easter bunny that has a lot to answer for this eleven year old. I'm guessing that's how she got this idea stuck in her head.

49- I agree with you completely. I have seen too many bad situations like that. My fiancé and I just split 2 weeks ago because of his 11 year old son. He would always swing at me and smack me and spit on me. And he didn't care when or where he did it or who he was in front of. And the same goes for my 17 year old sister and my mother. The amount of disrespect in the younger generation is appalling! It, truly, is a heartbreaking situation. No matter how much respect you give them, they only spit

^ situations like that don't you just wish you were a kid again just so it wouldn't be wrong to beat the little twerp

It's because of the stupid gov't laws that prevent parents from beating the shite out of their evil kids that the world is so messed up now. 50 years ago people could smack their kid to teach the lesson that being a shit has repercussions, and they learned a modicum of respect for their elders... Nowadays you can't even raise your voice to them. See how kids acted then compared to now? Doesn't look like a coincidence does it? :p

Beating kids helps at some point, when they first start acting up, yeah that might teach them that it's not ok because if they do they will get their butt whooped. But if you let it go and when it gets out of hand that's when you wanna be tough it doesn't work

72 it's not beating them it's just like a slap on the cheek when they misbehave, it happened to me and I think everybody as a kid and I treat everyone with respect.

It's illegal though because of abusive parents so it protects kids in those kind of situations, but it does suck for people just trying to correct their kids

No beatings but a good ass paddling never hurts. I had my fair share of them and I turned out fine.

GhyWow why does everybody tell people they should beat the shit out of there kids...? Raise them right in the first place, don't let them be subjected to the bullshit they learn it from, and in cases where you can't control what they are subjected to maybe a spanking or a light tap in the face depending on the age...or other punishments like grounded from friends, internet, cell phone... Kids hate that stuff and it limits the shit they can get subjected to. Beating them will only push them away

Fifty years ago if you did something bad the person who saw you did it would smack you; then tell your parents, they they'd beat you too.

You realize that (hopefully) all of you guys were probably beat at some point, and look how good you came out! It should be a punishment, not a "No! My favorite sports team lost!" *smack*

99- I agree fully with the first part about punishments. If one should hit their child at all they should AT LEAST be grounded for a while. If that doesn't work, then increase the period of time and add in a little "respect my authority" spanking. Children now a days act out because their parents are way too lenient. But @99, your example was out of line. A beating or to hit a child must be a consequence of his/her acting wrongful or disrespectful, not because "aww, my favorite te

99- sorry, I reread your comment and fully agree with what you said. Beating a child for little to no reason (as your example stated) is wrong and also is called child abuse which is illegal (and for good reasons).

When I was younger, my mom had "the spoon." It was wooden spoon and she'd smack us with it if we were disrespectful or something. So whenever we did something that was bad, she'd take it out and we'd be wonderful kids. It worked to a point but then I went through that "idgaf" phase and didn't care. Now, I love and respect my parents so much, they are the best. But the point is, hitting won't get your point across. I realize now what I did was wrong but before that, it wasn't

The egg? I used to think rabbits laid eggs and they laid chocolate eggs especially for Easter. Why else would we have an 'Easter bunny' ? But now I know.

I'd say the child is the moron in this case, also for speaking back to dad. I would have been grounded for weeks!

I'm pretty sure most people who have been through the educational system in the US know that rabbits don't come from eggs.

Reply

Yeah because America's the only one with idiots who didn't pay attention in class. If only we could aspire to have great people from our country like Tom Green such as you...

Ahm, I actually have a brother who is 12 which isn't much older than 11, and he knows very well that rabbits don't lay eggs. I think we're underestimating OP at age 11, but I believe 99% of 11 year olds know rabbits don't lay eggs. As to whether pumpkins grow on trees or not, that's a little bit different.

last time I checked the overall process is pretty much the same. i don't know about you but most people can grasp the basic idea as it applies to mammals in general without requiring a class on each on individually.

they probably think it grows in the grocery store. its not limited to children though. most adults know milk comes from cows but some don't realize it is the same milk baby cows drink.
