Oh man, that's bad. Tell his mother! Hopefully he'll clean up his toys in the future when he learns what he did.
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.
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.
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.
