Today, I asked my 5-year-old nephew to clean up his mess of toys. He responded by kicking my foot. My bandaged foot which was still recovering from my surgery last week. I'm probably going to need another operation to fix the damage. FML

Exactly. This is that moment in time where the parent should just take their kid outside, set up some yardage, pick the kid up, and punt the hell out of them.

No I don't consider it abuse. I don't agree with it because I think it teaches fear and not respect, but that's a separate issue. I'm talking about where people actually cause physical damage to their kids. And don't say it doesn't happen, someone very close to me, I'm not saying who, suffered from physical and verbal abuse as a child and it has greatly affected him in a bad way

Oh god forbid I have a different opinion. I have a whole bunch of reasons I don't agree with spanking kids, but that's not the issue I was bringing up. When you hit a kid hard enough that you leave some kind of physical mark, that's going too far. I don't agree with spanking, but when you're actually causing physical harm to a kid, then that's a whole different story.

I don't know for sure, but their homeowners insurance would probably cover this additional surgery. That is if they have insurance. Good luck and never let the little shit forget what he did to you.

My step daughter did that sort of thing to my knee. I'm sorry, hope they can fix yours, the damage to mine is now inoperable. Hope the parents can at least teach the kid to react with no violence, we're still working on it and have No idea where she learned it.

Child abuse causes real emotional damage later in life.
I am NOT at all saying it was alright what he did, but I do not believe raising a hand, belt, or fist to a child is ever the answer.

When children grow up with violence, especially when it's inflicted upon them, they can develop serial mental issues as adults.
Violence only causes more violence, not to mention low self esteem, self inflicted wounds, and lack of self worth overall.

83, I got the fuck paddled out of me, and I don't have any violent tendencies (other than in a cage or ring). It's not because they want to hit you; it's for you to learn humility.

I used to get spanked and hit with a Police belt, I deserved every beating I got. I do not have a violent bone in my body. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with spanking your child.

Oh hell naw, I would whoop that little boys ass, and the fact that he did this shows that the parents have taught him no manners and that type of behavior is acceptable. You wouldn't get anywhere with those type of parents because they will always defend their child and claim that he or she is an angel. Fuck dat, you bend them over lay the pipe to them and make them and their disrespectful child pay for your surgery.
